Spokane Airport commissioned this cake, baked by Freeport Bakery, to celebrate the start of Southwest Airlines’ new twice-daily service to Long Beach and daily service to Spokane. Both routes launched on 1 August.
- Southwest Airlines has expanded its route offering from Sacramento (SMF) with flights to Long Beach (LGB) and Spokane (GEG). Both launched on 1 August, the 621-kilometre link to Long Beach will be operated by the LCC twice-daily, facing direct competition from JetBlue Airways which also operates the city pair twice-daily. The 1,044-kilometre route to Spokane will be flown daily facing no direct competition. Both sectors will be flown using the carrier’s 737-700s.
