Alaska Airlines To Link Boise and Spokane

On Wednesday, March 18, 2015, Seattle-based, Alaska Airlines, announced a new route, not out of Seattle, but out of Boise, Idaho. The new route will link Spokane, Washington with Boise. The route is scheduled to begin service on August 24, 2015 with tickets currently on sale for $69 one way.

The flights will be operated by Horizon Airlines, a regional carrier for Alaska Airlines, using the Bombardier Dash-8 Q400. With a scheduled flight time of just over an hour, the twice daily flight is timed very well for business travelers between the two cities.

The addition of the Spokane flight bring the total number of destinations from Boise up to 8. Besides flights to the two main hubs in Portland and Seattle, Alaska also offers service to Sacramento, Salt Lake City, San Jose, San Diego, San Jose, and Lewiston, Idaho. The airline offers more non-stop flights to and from Boise than any other airline.

“Boise-Spokane is a highly requested market for us and is particularly important for business passengers in the Pacific Northwest,” said John Kirby, Alaska’s vice president of capacity planning, in a press release from the airline. “Our schedule has both morning and evening departures, which are designed to allow day trips in both directions.”
