Alaska Airlines launches Embraer 175 jet service in the state of Alaska

Alaska Airlines added jet service on the Embraer 175 aircraft in the state of Alaska on October 18, 2020. The E175, operated by regional partner Horizon Air, now serves select markets in Alaska.

With the reduction of air service in Alaska earlier this year, the E175 jet gives Alaska Airlines the flexibility to increase daily frequency between Anchorage and Fairbanks, and to provide year-round service to King Salmon and Dillingham.
