HORIZON ANNOUNCES NORTHWEST AIRLINES FLIGHTS ADDED TO SALEM-PORTLAND LIMOUSINE CONNECTIONS

 HORIZON ANNOUNCES NORTHWEST AIRLINES FLIGHTS ADDED
 TO SALEM-PORTLAND LIMOUSINE CONNECTIONS
 SEATTLE, July 6 /PRNewswire/ -- Horizon Air announced today it has reached an agreement with Northwest Airlines and Hut Airport Limousine Inc. (Hut) whereby Northwest flight numbers will be used on Hut's van service between Salem and Portland, Ore., when connecting with Northwest in Portland. The result will be easier, faster and less- expensive travel between Salem and cities served by Northwest Airlines. A similar arrangement between Hut and Horizon and Alaska Airlines has been in place since 1988.
 The van service will display in travel agent and airline computer reservation systems under NW flight numbers 2800-2899. The designation LMO will indicate that the equipment type is one of Hut's nine, 11-passenger vans which it operates on the one-hour-and- 15-minute trip between Salem and Portland. Horizon Air also operates one daily roundtrip aircraft flight between the two cities using an 18-seat Metroliner turbo prop.
 Passengers using Hut will be served at Salem's McNary Airport and at Portland International by Horizon Air personnel. In addition, to low-cost parking at Salem, passengers will enjoy the same benefits enjoyed by those who use Hut to connect to Alaska and Horizon Air: one-stop check-in including boarding passes for all connecting flights, luggage checked through to its final destination, economical single airfares and coordinated schedules. All these services, including reservations and tickets, may be arranged with one call to Horizon Air at 800-547-9308, Northwest Airlines at 800-225-2525, or a travel agent.
 The local one-way fare for travel on Hut or Horizon Air solely between Salem and Portland is $20. However, for those purchasing tickets from Salem using a single fare connecting to Northwest, Alaska or Horizon Air, the additional amount to travel from Salem is as low as $10 more roundtrip than similar fare-types offered from Portland. Passengers can also earn miles in Northwest's WorldPerks or the Alaska/Horizon Mileage Plan frequent flier program on the Hut trip.
 Hut Airport Limousine Inc., an Oregon corporation, has operated van service for more than 18 years. They currently operate 10 roundtrips a day between Salem and Portland.
 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). Northwest is the world's fourth-largest airlines and with its Northwest Airlink regional airline partners serves more than 200 cities in the United States, Canada, Mexico, the Caribbean, Europe, Asia and Australia.
