HORIZON AIR TO USE ALASKA JETS ON SPOKANE-SEATTLE SHUTTLE

    SEATTLE, Aug. 13 /PRNewswire/ -- Horizon Air will operate four of its 17 daily round-trip shuttles between Spokane and Seattle with Boeing and McDonnell Douglas jets beginning Oct. 3.
    Horizon will lease the aircraft from sister carrier Alaska Airlines. The flights will be staffed with Alaska pilots and flight attendants and Alaska will provide maintenance service for the aircraft.  Horizon will provide passenger check-in, baggage handling and other ground services in Spokane.  In Seattle, ground services will be performed by Alaska.
    Horizon will use the Alaska aircraft in place of some of its own 65- seat F-28 jets while those aircraft alternately undergo scheduled routine maintenance checks over the next six months.  In all, 10 of Horizon's 17 daily round-trips will be operated with jets.
    "Through this agreement, we can maintain our high frequency jet service in this important market," said Bill Ayer, vice president of marketing and planning.
    Seattle-based Horizon Air serves 35 cities in Washington, Idaho, Oregon, Montana, Utah, California and British Columbia.  Horizon Air and Alaska Airlines are wholly owned subsidiaries of Alaska Air Group, Inc.
