Alaska Airlines to Add Mainline Service to Seattle
Boise, Idaho – On June 4, 2017 Alaska Airlines will begin flying a mainline Boeing 737 between Boise and Seattle. The up-gauged service will replace a smaller regional jet, such as the Embraer 175 or Bombardier Q400, adding approximately 60 seats per day to/from the Seattle market. This daytime flight will complement existing Alaska Airlines service to Seattle, which has up to eight daily trips during peak periods.
“We’re thrilled Alaska Airlines continues to invest in our community by adding mainline service to Seattle, our largest origination/destination market”, said Rebecca Hupp, Boise Airport Director. “Alaska’s continued success in the Boise region is a testament to their passenger loyalty and commitment to the Boise market.”
Alaska Airlines offers nonstop service to nine destinations from Boise; Lewiston, Portland, Reno, Sacramento, Salt Lake City, San Diego, San Jose, Seattle and Spokane.
