Alaska Airlines is singing in the Valleys with two new routes

Yampa Valley inaugural flight from San Diego.

Yampa Valley welcomed the arrival of Alaska Airlines’ inaugural flight from San Diego on 17 December. The airline will operate the 1,236-kilometre links twice-weekly (Wednesdays and Saturdays) on its E175s. The airline already links Yampa Valley to Seattle-Tacoma.

  • Alaska Airlines on 17 December inaugurated two new routes to the Valleys – one each from Portland (PDX) and San Diego (SAN). The airline launched flights from the former to Sun Valley (SUN), with the 695-kilometre link being flown on the carrier’s Q400s, while the latter was connected to Yampa Valley (HDN), a 1,236-kilometre route that will be flown on the airline’s E175 fleet. Both connections will be flown by the airline twice-weekly (Wednesdays and Saturdays), with neither facing direct competition. Alaska Airlines already links Sun Valley with Los Angeles and Seattle-Tacoma, while it also flies to Yampa Valley from the latter hub.
