ALASKA AIRLINES TO FLY TO DILLINGHAM, KING SALMON

 ALASKA AIRLINES TO FLY TO DILLINGHAM, KING SALMON
 SEATTLE, Feb. 10 /PRNewswire/ -- Alaska Airlines (NYSE: ALK; PSE)


announced today it will inaugurate daily nonstop service May 17 from Anchorage to the Southwest Alaska fishing communities of Dillingham and King Salmon.
 Alaska initially will offer three round-trip flights daily -- nonstop from Anchorage to Dillingham, nonstop from Anchorage to King Salmon and a third trip that will be routed Anchorage-King Salmon- Dillingham-Anchorage. A fourth flight -- Anchorage-Dillingham-King Salmon-Anchorage -- will be added June 8. All service will be seasonal, running to September.
 "The large volume of traffic in the summer from the fishing industry demands jet aircraft in these markets," said Bill MacKay, Alaska's regional vice president based in Anchorage. "Our service is designed to complement the year-round turboprop service of PenAir."
 PenAir and Alaska are marketing and code-sharing partners, providing feed traffic to each other in Anchorage.
 Alaska's schedule will include morning, mid-day and evening departures from both destinations and feature same-plane service to and from Seattle. Boeing 727 and 737 aircraft will be used.
