Horizon adds summer LA flights

New schedule starts June 27

Express Staff Writer

Seattle-based Horizon Air will offer daily flights this summer between Los Angeles and the Wood River Valley.

Horizon spokeswoman Cheryl Temple announced Friday, April 30 that the air carrier from June 27 through Sept. 12 will operate direct, daily flights between Los Angeles International and Friedman Memorial airports.

"We’re glad to say that serving this route in the summer proved to be the right choice for us," Temple said.

The new flight schedule calls for daily Horizon flights to:

  • Depart Hailey at 7:30 a.m. and arrive in Los Angeles at 8:50 a.m.

  • Depart Los Angeles at 9:20 a.m. and arrive in Hailey at 12:40 p.m.

The flights will be operated with 70-seat Q-400 turbo-prop airplanes, the same aircraft used last winter for flights between California and Hailey.

The summer flight schedule was added just one week after Horizon announced it would operate direct, daily flights between two California cities, Los Angeles and Oakland, from Dec. 16, 2004, through April 3, 2005.

Sun Valley Co. is planning to provide Horizon with revenue-guarantee subsidies for maintaining the winter flights.

The Los Angeles flight service originally commenced in December 2002 and continued through last March.

The first year of service was subsidized by a federal grant. Sun Valley Co subsidized the Los Angeles flights last winter.

No direct flights between Hailey and California are being offered this spring.
