Alaska Airlines has added a jet service with the Embraer 175 aircraft in the state of Alaska, operated by regional partner Horizon Air.

With the reduction of air service in Alaska earlier this year, the E175 jet gives Alaska Airlines the flexibility to increase daily frequency between Anchorage and Fairbanks, and to provide year-round service to King Salmon and Dillingham.

At 76 seats, the E175 is the ideal size for many communities where larger jets are not the best option throughout the year. With no middle seats, the regional jet is configured with 12 seats in First Class, 12 in Premium Class and 52 in the main cabin.
