Horizon Air Offering Double Miles on Flights Between San Jose, Sacramento and Spokane Starting March 26
SEATTLE - Horizon Air is offering Double Miles for Alaska Airlines Mileage Plan members who travel on Horizon's new direct flights between San Jose or Sacramento and Spokane and between San Jose and Sacramento March 26 through May 31, 2010.
"We're excited to provide an easier way to travel between these three vital metropolitan areas, and this Mileage Plan offer makes it doubly rewarding for travelers," said Dan Russo, Horizon vice president of marketing and communications.
Mileage Plan members who register for this offer will earn 1,302 miles each way between Sacramento and Spokane, and 1,493 miles each way between San Jose and Spokane. Because Mileage Plan members earn a minimum of 500 miles each way, the Double Miles total between San Jose and Sacramento is a whopping 1,000 miles each way.
Alaska Airlines' Mileage Plan offers some of the industry's most attractive award options, with award travel within the continental U.S. and Canada for as little as 25,000 miles. Customers who've yet to enroll can do so online at horizonair.com and receive 500 miles for signing up and an additional 1,000 miles when they use Web check-in the first time.
Horizon will operate two daily flights between the three cities. One flight from Spokane will operate nonstop to Sacramento and continue on to San Jose, and a second flight from Spokane will operate nonstop to San Jose and continue on to Sacramento. This new service includes two daily roundtrip flights between San Jose and Sacramento, facilitating same-day business trips in each direction between the two cities.
Fares between San Jose or Sacramento and Spokane start as low as $120, while fares between Sacramento and San Jose are as low as $29.
All flights will be operated with 76-seat Bombardier Q400s. This high-speed, twin-engine turboprop is one of the most technologically advanced regional aircraft in the world. It's as quiet and comfortable as a jet - thanks to special technology that suppresses noise and vibration, generously sized overhead storage bins, unobstructed under-seat space, and ample headroom (6 feet, 5 inches). The Q400 is also among the most environmentally friendly aircraft today, burning 30 percent to 40 percent less fuel and producing an equally lower amount of emissions (and 10 decibels less noise) than comparable jets.
Onboard, travelers will enjoy Horizon's award-winning service, which includes - at no extra charge - Starbucks coffee, soft drinks, and (for passengers 21 and older) Northwest wines and microbrews.
