I thought that Horizon Air was based in the USA but from the below link, the DH8-Q400 has a Canadian Marking?

So, is QX American or Canadian?

JaseWGTN,

Horizon is based in the US. The Q400 that you saw has Canadian manufacturers registration on it. When it is delivered to Horizon it will be given an "N" number.

One visit to Seattle will tell you that Horizon is based there. Never again will I fly them, just a thing of mine. Their little DHC-8s and F-28s are parading in and out all day long.

Horizon is an American airline part of the Alaska Air Group with Operations headquartered at Portland, Oregon (PDX). Horizon has just taken delivery of its first Dash8-400 which is likely the one shown in the photo with a C- registration. Why it has Canadian registration? I don't know, maybe it is temporary, for use during testing and delivery.

There is also a Horizon Air in Australia which has nothing to do with the American airline.

Horizon is very much American, based here in SEA under the Alaska Air Group. Wasn't aware that they were getting some -400s, though.... interesting. I have never flown them (never needed to), but I might try them out, assuming they are as good as their parent airline, Alaska.

Horizon Air (full name is Horizon Air Industries Inc.) operates more than 500 flights a day. They connect cities in Montana, Idaho, Washington, Oregon California, as well as British Columbia and Alberta to their hubs in Seattle, Portland, and Boise. Horizon eliminated much of their "point-to-point" service in the mid-90s in favor of a the present tri-hub system.

Horizon's service is pretty much tops among regional airlines. They operate Dash-8s and F-28 4000s. The 70 seat CRJs and Q-400s will come online this year (first Q-400 has arrived, but won't be in service for a while, due to pilot training problems). Horizon aircraft are all equipped with leather seats. The new Q-400s will have a 33 inch seat pitch...most generous for a turboprop. Horizon offers complimentary Pacific Northwest wines and microbrews in-flight. They offer coffee and complimentary newspapers in their hub city's boarding areas.

Aw, now I am all excited. You don't see -400s or CRJs in SEA at all. Its good QXE is expanding- won't hurt them. I might have to find an excuse to fly them later this year... any destination suggestions?  Smile

You could come to Spokane and I'll give you a ride in my seaplane....or you could go to Wenatchee and see the holes I made in the runway when I was learning to fly....or you could just drive to BFI and see the holes in the runway from the last time I landed a 727 there...or
