Alaska Airlines introduces regional jet service on the Embraer 175 aircraft. Operated by regional partner Horizon Air, the E175 will serve select markets in the state.

After reducing air service earlier this year, the E175 jet allows Alaska Airlines to increase daily flights between Anchorage (ANC) and Fairbanks (FAI), and offer year-round service to King Salmon (AKN) and Dillingham (DLG).

“This has been an especially challenging time for Alaskans both due to the pandemic and the reduction of air service last spring,” said Marilyn Romano, regional vice president, Alaska Airlines. “As part of our commitment to Alaskans and the communities we serve, we are introducing a new aircraft to our in-state 737 fleet. The E175 supports additional flying and keeps Alaskans connected within the state and beyond.”

The E175 offers 76 seats and is ideal for many communities where larger jets are not feasible year-round.

“The E175 is a perfect aircraft to complement the current flying in Alaska,” said Joe Sprague, president, Horizon Air. “Our crews are focused on supporting Alaska Airlines and committed to the same outstanding service Alaskans have come to rely on for 88 years.”

The regional jet does not offer middle seats, and includes 12 first-class seats, 12 Premium Class seats and 52 in the main cabin. Guests can expect onboard WiFi and Alaska Beyond Entertainment, including hundreds of free movies and TV shows streaming via customer devices.

Embark on Alaskan Adventure Tours from Anchorage

As our four-passenger plane prepared to land on a gravely shoreline in Lake Clark National Park, one of the most remote national parks in the United States, accessible only by plane or boat, my excitement grew. Though the flight was scenic and provided a terrific perspective of the vast expanse of this part of Southcentral Alaska, my fellow passengers and I had one thing on our mind — bears!

Review: Hotel Pennsylvania, New York City

I was staying in New York City with my daughter. We arrived at Penn Station, right across the street from Hotel Pennsylvania, at 9:30 a.m. — way too early to check in. But we had some luggage we didn’t want to carry around with us, so we stopped at the hotel to leave it.

Mingle with the Locals in Colorado Springs’ Revitalized Ivywild.

On a summer stroll around my friend’s Colorado Springs Ivywild neighborhood, a school building was bustling. Odd, at first sight, as it was summer, and school was clearly not in session. But upon further inquiry, I learned the former Ivywild Elementary School, closed in 2009, had been completely reimagined as part of a Colorado Springs Urban Renewal Authority project.
