Horizon Air Releases Modified Flight Schedule for Sept. 18-24, Returning to 90% of Full Strength



    SEATTLE, September 16 /CNW/ - To accommodate currently booked customers
and those wishing to make future travel plans, Horizon Air has released a
modified firm schedule that is expected to stay in effect Tuesday, Sept. 18,
through Monday, Sept. 24. The schedule, which brings Horizon's number of
flights back up to 90 percent of normal, will allow the airline to complete
the inspections of the Bombardier Aerospace Q400 turboprops in its fleet, as
per Transport Canada and Bombardier specifications. Beginning Sept. 25,
Horizon hopes to resume its regular schedule.

    If you are booked on a Horizon flight through Sept. 17, before the new
schedule takes effect, please check your flight status online (horizonair.com)
or by phone (our automated flight status system at 1-800-547-9308).

    If you are booked on a Horizon flight between Sept. 18 and 24, within the
new schedule, please check the table below, which lists the flights canceled
during this period. Even if you don't see your flight below, it's best to
check your flight status before heading to the airport.

    If you are booked on an affected flight and have not already been
contacted for re-accommodation on another flight (at no charge) or a refund,
please contact our reservations center at 1-800-547-9308.

    The aircraft inspections are in response to a Transport Canada
airworthiness directive (AD) issued Sept. 12. Transport Canada's AD was
produced in the wake of two landing gear failure incidents involving
SAS-affiliated airlines in Europe. Horizon, which has operated the
Canadian-manufactured Q400 since 2001, has never experienced any issues like
those SAS recently encountered.

    Going forward, Horizon will comply with any additional guidance from the
manufacturer and regulatory authorities, which might result in additional
schedule adjustments.

    "With safety as our foremost consideration, we're working diligently to
respond to directives from the manufacturers and regulatory authorities as we
receive them," said Jeff Pinneo, president and CEO. "We remain focused on
minimizing any inconvenience to our customers as we progress toward the
restoration of our full flight schedule."
