Alaska Airlines has increased its operation from Albuquerque (ABQ) this week by introducing daily flights to Portland (PDX) and Orange County (SNA), adding to its existing daily operation from Seattle-Tacoma. The 1,785- and 1,043-kilometre routes from Oregon and California, both launched on 18 August, will be flown by the airline on its fleet of E175s operated by Horizon Air. While Orange County services will face no direct competition, flights to Portland will go head-to-head with Southwest Airlines which already provides six weekly flights on the city pair.
