I believe they are in Tempe. It is on the opposite side of the hill from Sun Devil Stadium. You fly over the building on final for the 25L.

The headquarters for AS and QX (I believe they're still separate buildings--someone with the company correct me if I'm wrong) are away from the airport, but not by much...just a mile or so down Highway 99 from SEA.


Next Flight: 9/17 BFI-BFI

I thought Horizon was in Portland, and Alaska in Seattle?

Alaska Airlines' HQ is not on the SEA footprint, but is within walking distance, so I'd call that "at."

Horizon's ops center is at the hangar at PDX, but the headquarters is across Interntional Blvd. and a block or two south from AAG headquarters in SeaTac.

I have a very strong opinion on this. While not all staff needs to be at the airport, I feel there is value in a large part of the staff that is usually involved at corporate headquarters to being near an airport. Apart from the fact that employees in the aviation business fly more often for either work or personal reasons, there are reasons to be near the operation. For example, engineering offices should be located near the maintenance operations so that engineers can be collocated with the mechanics they support and get a better idea of what is happening. Seeing the real thing is far more valuable than a picture.

For example, UA moved their engineering management from SFO airport to the Sears Tower. That made no sense in my mind.



If you have never designed an airplane part before, let the real designers do the work!

Their headquarters have always intrigued me. Inside it seems so makeshift and austere, not at all what you would imagine from a major airline. Definitely different, that's for sure.

Same here!

Are there any other airlines with such noticeable headquarters?

Rumours are the For Sale sign is about to be put up at the entrance? The place must be worth millions... Although a drop in the ocean compared to BD's current financial state.
