Press release from Fly Humboldt:
Today Supervisor Virginia Bass and Ramone’s Bakery and Café co-owner Brian Ferguson announced that Ramone’s Bakery and Café will be opening is newest location at the California Redwood Coast – Humboldt County Airport. The new Ramone’s will be located at the site of the former gift shop on the terminal’s ground floor. Construction will start soon.
“We want to thank Supervisor Bass for reaching out to us and presenting this great opportunity. Her vision and tenacity will result in a great relationship that will benefit the airport, its customers, and Ramone’s. We look forward to our grand opening,” said Ferguson.
Supervisor Bass adds, “I thought that Ramone’s would be a great addition to our airport. I know that the new location will be greatly appreciated by the airport’s customers and the community at large. I want to thank Ramone’s for being open to the idea and for supporting us in our quest to revitalize this important community asset.”
Emily Jacobs, program coordinator for the Humboldt County Aviation Division states, “We work hard to improve the service we provide to the flying public. We want to continue to build on our goal of more flights to more destinations. At the same time, we want to make the customer experience at our airport as comfortable and convenient as possible. Having Ramone’s here will definitely add to that.”
The Ramone’s announcement is further good news for the California Redwood Coast – Humboldt County Airport. Last month it was announced that PenAir will start new service at the airport on April 21. They will be providing two daily departures to Portland, Oregon and one to Redding, California. PenAir’s partnership with Alaska Airlines will mean that local passengers will again be able to book flights from the California Redwood Coast-Humboldt County Airport via Alaska. In addition, United Express continues to add to its service to San Francisco. The addition of larger United Express jets and the new PenAir service has resulted in a 78% increase in available seats for the summer months.
