Alaska Airlines has announced it plans to add the Embraer 175 jet aircraft to services in Alaska beginning in October 202, the company said.
The E175, operated by regional partner Horizon Air, will serve select markets in Alaska.
The E175 aircraft complements the current Boeing 737 mainline flying in, to and from the state of Alaska and is perfect for many communities where larger jets are not the best option.
With no middle seats, the regional jet is configured with 12 seats in first class, 12 in premium class and 52 in the main cabin. Onboard amenities include Wi-Fi access, and Alaska Beyond Entertainment, which includes free movies and TV shows direct to customer devices and power outlets in first class.
Alaska Airlines recently added Boeing 737 service to Cold Bay, and started service one month early to King Salmon and Dillingham. Alaska Air Cargo also began serving Unalakleet earlier this month with our 737-700 freighters.
Alaska Airlines and its regional partners serve more than 115 destinations across the United States and North America, providing essential air service along with moving crucial cargo shipments, such as food, medicine, mail and e-commerce deliveries.
