ALASKA AIRLINES LAUNCHED NONSTOP SERVICE TO RENO/TAHOE AND SANTA ROSA/SONOMA
SANTA ANA, Calif. - Yesterday, Orange County Board of Supervisors' Vice Chair Michelle Steel, tourism partners, Olympic gold medalist Julia Mancuso and Snoopy were at John Wayne Airport (JWA) to commemorate the launch of Alaska Airlines' new nonstop service between Orange County and Reno/Tahoe and Santa Rosa/Sonoma. Launched on March 16, 2016, Horizon Air, a subsidiary of Alaska Airlines, will be operating one flight a day to both Reno/Tahoe and Santa Rosa/Sonoma.
Departing and arriving passengers on the inaugural flights received goody bags from tourism partners and refreshments from Alaska Airlines, and arriving passengers from the Charles M. Schulz–Sonoma County Airport received a special welcome from Snoopy.
