Alaska Airlines is growing again in Boise with a pair of new nonstops. Starting June 16, the airline will begin year-round, daily flights to Idaho Falls and Las Vegas from Boise. With these additional routes, the airline will fly up to 36 daily departures from Boise to 15 destinations by next summer – all nonstop.
"We have deep roots in the Treasure Valley and our commitment to our guests in southern Idaho keeps getting stronger," said Brett Catlin, vice president of network and alliances at Alaska Airlines. "Reconnecting Boise and Idaho Falls with nonstop air service will drive economic activity and enable further growth of our Boise focus city, including today's announcement of new nonstop service to Vegas."
"We are so pleased that Alaska Airlines is bringing more intrastate connectivity to the residents and businesses of Boise. Nonstop service between Boise and Idaho Falls enhances both communities, making business and leisure travel more convenient between the two," said Boise Airport Director Rebecca Hupp.
"The flexibility Alaska Airlines' new intrastate route provides to local residents is immeasurable," said Idaho Falls Mayor Rebecca Casper. "It provides the perfect work-life balance to those looking to live in the beautiful Idaho Falls region while still maintaining access to Boise for business reasons or connections onward for leisure travel. It's a win for everyone."
Starting Nov. 19, the airline will begin flying daily nonstop service from Boise to another heavily requested destination in the desert: Phoenix. Originally scheduled for seasonal flying during the winter, the airline will now fly the route year-round.
