Horizon Air will begin service on behalf of sister carrier Alaska Airlines from John Wayne Orange County Airport to Charles M. Schulz – Sonoma County Airport and Reno-Tahoe International Airport on March 16.
The regional carrier will offer a daily round-trip on each of the two routes and will operate 76-seat Bombardier Q400 turboprop regional airliners on the routes.
