In 1985, E.M. “Red” Wickkiser, a former Northwest Orient Airlines pilot, bought a small shuttle company in Bellingham, WA – forming Wickkiser International Companies. With Red and his son Larry taking turns driving one 10-passenger van – two times a day – to SeaTac Airport, the legacy that is now Bellair Charters /Airporter Shuttle began.
From the humble beginning of two employees and one vehicle, the company has grown to operating 70 vehicles – luxury motorcoaches, mini buses, vans – and employing approximately 150 people across Washington State. To date more than 3.5 million passengers have traveled with Bellair Charters / Airporter Shuttle.
To humbly serve our guests by delivering an extraordinarily safe, reliable and friendly experience – from start to finish.
Work like a Champ. Serve with Heart. Enjoy the Ride.
