HORIZON AIR BOARDINGS SET ALL-TIME RECORD

 HORIZON AIR BOARDINGS SET ALL-TIME RECORD
 SEATTLE, July 6 /PRNewswire/ -- Horizon Air announced today June


boardings of 229,314, surpassing their previous high of 200,331 set in August of last year. On June 25, the company boarded a single-day record high of 9,353. Prior to June, the single-day record was 8,607 set last Dec. 20.
 Horizon officials attribute the record boardings to the half-price ticket sale initiated by the major airlines in late May for travel until Sept. 13. "As usual, we participated in the sale by offering half-price tickets for travel from our smaller cities to just about anywhere in the U.S.," said Bill Ayer, vice president of Marketing and Planning. "Folks get the convenience of flying from their hometown airport and a bargain price as well. It's the best of both worlds," he added.
 Horizon cities that boarded an all-time monthly record number of passengers were Bellingham, Wash.; Billings, Mont.; Boise, Idaho; Butte, Mont.; Eugene/Springfield, Ore.; Great Falls, Helena, Kalispell, Mont.; Klamath Falls, Ore.; Lewiston, Idaho; Medford, Ore.; Missoula, Mont.; North Bend/Coos Bay, Ore.; Pasco (Tri-Cities), Wash.; Pendleton, Portland, Ore.; Seattle, Spokane, Walla Walla and Wenatchee, Wash.
 Horizon Air serves 35 cities throughout five states and British Columbia and Alberta. Horizon Air and Alaska Airlines are wholly owned subsidiaries of Alaska Air Group Inc. (NYSE: ALK; PSE).
