Alaska Airlines has announced two new routes from Los Angeles, and one new route from Boise, Idaho, all of which will be operated by Alaska’s sister carrier Horizon Air, using 76-seat Bombardier Q400s.
New daily roundtrip service between Los Angeles and Monterey, California; and Boise, Idaho and Reno, Nevada will begin on 5 November. A new seasonal flight between Los Angeles and Gunnison/Crested Butte will shuttle skiers and snowboarders from California to Colorado starting in December.
“We continue to invest in our Los Angeles focus city and in expanding our regional route network,” said John Kirby, Alaska’s vice-president of capacity planning. “These new flights will connect key cities in California, Idaho and Nevada, not to mention offer a thrilling new ski destination for our customers in Southern California.”
Alaska has also announced that it will upgauge its flights from Los Angeles to Loreto, Mexico, from 1 November. The flights are currently operated daily using Q400s but they will be operated from Thursday to Sunday with Boeing 737s, adding about 70 additional seats each week.
