MOSCOW, Idaho (KIFI) — Alaska Airlines is going to offer non-stop flights between Boise and the Pullman-Moscow Regional Airport.
That announcement was made Thursday.
Tickets are on sale now, and flights begin Aug. 18.
“We are grateful for the opportunity to join the University of Idaho and the region’s partners to support Alaska Airlines resumption of the Boise service,” Pullman-Moscow Regional Airport Executive Director Tony Bean said.
Air service from the Palouse directly to Boise has not been available for about a decade. Air service from Lewiston was terminated in 2018.
Since then, flights from the Poulouse had been routed through Seattle.
The University of Idaho entered an agreement with Alaska Air to guarantee profit for the first three years of flight service.
The university will pay up to $500,000 each year if the airline does not make 10% more than the cost of operation.
