30th Anniversary 1985-2015

 

 

1985. It was a simpler time; cell phones were a new invention, and Back to the Future was leading the box office. E.M. “Red” Wickkiser, a pilot and resident of Bellingham, Washington, saw a need and acted upon it. Red purchased a business license and a single 10-passenger van and, along with his son Larry, started offering twice-a-day shuttle service from Bellingham to Sea-Tac Airport. It was immediately popular and Red added more vehicles, a full-time staff, more drivers and equipment.

Fast-forwarding 30 years to 2015, Bellair Charters / Airporter Shuttle now operates a fleet of over 50 vehicles, mainly full-size motorcoaches, employs 100+ people, and offers frequent service to/from Sea-Tac Airport from Bellingham, Yakima, and all points in-between. We also offer premium charter bus service to anywhere your group wants to go. We've transported over 3 million passengers and counting.

And we're still connected to our roots. Red and Larry Wickkiser, though no longer the owners, continue to be great friends of the company. We're still locally- and family-owned, and espouse the same values and commitment to quality that Red and Larry instilled 30 years ago.

 

30 YEARS - THANKS FOR RIDING WITH US!

We have you, our passengers, to thank for our 30 years of business. THANK YOU!!

 

IOWA STREET - OUR LATEST AND GREATEST STOP

We're also celebrating the first year of our new Bellingham office/stop at 1204 Iowa Street. It's been a great stop for everyone in Whatcom County, with plenty of overnight parking (at only $4 a day), and comfortable, roomy waiting area. We've been happy to share the building with Budget/Avis, offering our customers great access to rental cars and trucks.


Thanks again to you, our cherished customer! We raise a glass in your honor, and look forward to serving you for 30 years more!
