Latest from The Spokesman-Review
Southwest Airlines has announced it is trimming four flights each day between Seattle and Spokane starting Jan. 8, reducing passenger choices in getting to the West Coast air corridor.
The announcement on Monday was part of a package of schedule changes that will result in 102 fewer flights in a cost-cutting move by the nationwide carrier.
The two current inbound flights from Seattle and the two departures from Spokane to Seattle are being cut, leaving no direct flights between Spokane and Seattle on Southwest.
Alaska Airlines/Horizon Air have been strong in serving that corridor over the years.
Spokane passengers will still be able to get to Southwest destinations through Portland and other hub cities such as Denver and Phoenix.
The changes were published Monday for the period from Jan. 8 through March 9.
