Southwest Airlines will shut down its Spokane to Portland flights in January, the airline announced.
The decision follows Southwest’s move to drop service to Seattle at the start of this year.
Southwest flies two flights to and from Portland daily.
In terms of total passengers, Portland is the second most-frequent destination from Spokane, according to federal transportation numbers.
Seattle ranks ahead of Portland.
With six flights daily, Alaska Airlines flies more passengers to and from Portland than Southwest does, the data show.
