Alaska Airlines said it has begun flying four new routes that enhance its West Coast network.
The new routes are between: Portland, Oregon, and Austin, Texas; Eugene, Oregon, and San Jose, California; Los Angeles and Monterey, California; and Boise, Idaho and Reno, Nevada.
All flights, except the Portland-Austin route, will be operated by Alaska´s sister carrier Horizon Air, using a 76-seat Bombardier Q400 aircraft.
The Portland-Austin flights will be operated for Alaska by SkyWest Airlines, using new 76-seat Embraer 175 jets. The E175 jet features 12 seats in first class and 64 in coach, and with cabin dimensions on par with a 737.
