Santa Barbara welcomed its second route on Alaska Airlines after Seattle flights. Flights to the California city will be operated daily from Portland during the summer season. Tracy Lincoln, Operations Manager for Santa Barbara Airport, is here seen interviewed by Scott Hurst of KEYT TV at the launch celebrations.

  • Alaska Airlines launched six new regional operations on 4 June, operated with Horizon Air’s 76-seat Q400s or SkyWest’s 70-seat CRJ700s. The three routes out of Portland, OR (PDX) are all seasonal, operating until the end of August, whereas the three California-originating routes are year-round services. Notably, Alaska Airlines has operated a couple of the routes in the past. The airline operated from Portland to Santa Barbara until 2008, while it served Bellingham during the summer of 2010. The route between San Jose and Reno had been operated by Southwest since 1993 until the airline dropped it in April this year, and it is now reinstated by Alaska Airlines.
