Alaska Airlines 737-800 Put On Their New Route.

Wed Jan 05, 2000 10:22 am

I was at itn.com,looking to find tickets to ANC. These were in 2001. I was wondering when and on which routes Alaska Airlines is going to be placing its new 737800s. Also, if you know of any other new destonations they will be adding, please tell me

Thanks
-Happy 2000

Does Alaska Airlines fly into Canada? I am hearing that new service might be in Canada.

I don't believe Alaska Airlines has ordered any -800's, but they already have a few -700's.

This spring Alaska Airlines will begin new service to/from Chicago O'hare (ORD).

The most recent route announcement was the ORD thing. If AS still flies YVR-LAX, I think this might be a candidate for the 737-800.

Also (off the topic)--Does YWG777 "hear" that EVERY AIRLINE will be starting service to Canada?!

First of all, Alaska currently has NO orders for the 737-800! They have placed orderes for, and recieved 737-700s and ordered the 737-900.

For now the 737-700s and 737-900s will probably be used to replace MD80s and maybe the older 737-400s, but I think those will be here for a long time!

As far as I know, Alaska DOES NOT plan on going to any more Canadian destinations. They currently only serve Vancouver. Horizon Air, Alaska's commuter partner flys to Victoria, Vancouver, Kelwona, Edmonton, and Calgary. The 737-900s will probably be placed on runs up and down the west coast or from Seattle to Anchorage and Fairbanks.
