Last time I took a Horizon flight a couple years back, honestly, I thought the price was ridiculously high. Maybe it still would be to where I was going -- simply a hop to Eastern Washington and the city of Pasco on business. It was on the order of $200.00 each way.
With that history in mind, I figured that it doesn't make sense to try to fly Horizon -- not cost effective. Then I saw the story in the local paper today. Horizon is offering $69.00 tickets to all sorts of desirable and relatively far away locations -- San Francisco, San Diego, Long Beach, Los Angeles, Oakland, Palm Springs, Phoenix, Reno and San Jose.
They are not direct flights. A person hops on Horizon in Bellingham, then transfers to Alaska Air at SeaTac. They state that the flight includes beverages, snacks, baggage check and other amenities not offered by some budget flights to similar destinations.
Fact is, I am not planning on going to any of those cities in the near future but, if I was -- or if you are -- then you might want to look into this. I know there are restrictions on when said trips may be taken -- booked by April 10 and travel dates from April 3 to May 31 of this year. I bring this up since I thought any Bellingham business travelers might want to check on this travel deal.
