HORIZON AIR TO INCREASE SEATTLE-BOISE JET SERVICE AND OFFER SEATTLE-SUN VALLEY NONSTOP FLIGHTS

 SEATTLE, Sept. 8 /PRNewswire/ -- Horizon Air announced today it will add two more jet flights each way between Boise, Idaho and Seattle starting Oct. 3. Beginning Dec. 18, Horizon will offer nonstop service from Seattle to Sun Valley and same-plane service from Vancouver, B.C., to Sun Valley for the ski season.
 Horizon will increase jet flights between Boise and Seattle from five to seven using 65-seat Fokker F28 jets. The new flights depart Boise at 11:50 a.m. and 6:40 p.m. and depart Seattle at 8:45 a.m. and 3:55 p.m. "We're adding more Boise-Seattle jet service to meet strong demand and because of our ongoing commitment to having the most frequent and convenient service of any airline flying throughout the Northwest," said Bill Ayer, vice-president of marketing and planning.
 Nonstop service from Seattle to Sun Valley and same-plane service from Vancouver to Sun Valley will be offered Dec. 18, 1993 through April 1, 1994. A 37-seat Dash 8 turbo prop will originate in Vancouver, make an intermediate stop in Seattle, and continue nonstop to Sun Valley daily except Jan. 1-12 when it will operate on weekends only. An additional nonstop flight will be offered from Seattle to Sun Valley on Fridays, and from Sun Valley to Seattle on Sundays, Dec. 17 through April 3. "We're starting our Sun Valley nonstop flights earlier this year because Sun Valley's state-of-the-art snow making equipment virtually guarantees great skiing by the holidays," said Ayer. Horizon's ski season nonstop service will complement four daily flights between Seattle and Sun Valley now offered year-round via connections in Boise.
 Horizon Air serves 35 cities throughout the Northwest and is a wholly owned subsidiary of Alaska Air Group Inc. (NYSE: ALK; PSE).
