-. Alaskan Air/Horizon Air loaded the resumption of PDX-RDM into its flight schedule. Horizon will re-start service between Portland and Redmond on a Winter-Seasonal basis starting later this year. Also, today, Alaska Airlines loaded an additional flight between SEA-YKM and get EAT/ALW/YKM back up to 2 flights daily this fall.
While some airlines have completely exited smaller regional markets, Alaska Airlines and Horizon Air, Alaska’s long-time regional airline sister company, have maintained at least minimal service to all the communities we serve.
This fall, the airline is also excited to share that it will resume service between Portland and Redmond. Horizon exited the market toward the end of the pandemic due to regional capacity constraints. The regional carrier will operate the route from November 29 through April 10, when the roads between Portland and Redmond can be especially tough to travel due to winter weather.
This route has been the top ask from both communities and will be highly impactful to the business population that commutes between the two cities,” said Kevin Lemme, general manager of airline planning & network performance. “We’re excited that we can resume service on a winter-seasonal basis.”
