Voice of Travelers to North Platte

Airfare ticket to North Platte

I needed to find a flight ticket to North Platte for a family gathering. I booked a ticket for North Platte last minute with PenAir. The ticket was well priced even if I purchased it a day before my flight. The ticket agent offered me a ticket service of fast transfer from North Platte airport to the city, but I declined as my cousin was waiting for me at the airport in North Platte to take me to their home. PenAir delivered great service and definitely worth the ticket price. When I needed to change the ticket date for returning back from North Platte , my ticket agent did it efficiently. I recommend PenAir for reasonable ticket price even if booked late if you travel to North Platte .

Visiting North Platte on a return ticket

I visited North Platte last year. I was invited to give a speech at North Platte municipality. My flight ticket was thus covered by the North Platte townhall. Thanks to this invitation, I flew with PenAir for free as my ticket was to North Platte . The ticket, I imagine, must have been quite expensive. I did not buy the ticket though, it was pre-arranged for me. The service aboard was just great. North Platte is a charming place I would love to attend the event next year as well, even if this time I am not invited and I have to pay for my plane ticket to North Platte myself.
