Horizon adds flight to meet demand with pass closed

Posted: Updated:

Yakima, WA -  The hottest ticket in town is now a plane ticket to the westside.

Horizon Air says it had to turn away at least 50 people today.

Since there was so much demand, the airline decided to add a morning flight tomorrow, which will leave at 9:20am.

There are 70 seats available on that plane and people can call the reservation line for tickets.

Some were lucky enough to sneak onto the last flight out tonight and did not have to wait anymore.

"I was supposed to go home this afternoon, but then it's been closed since tuesday, or something so then i was going to go through stevens, but then that closed too and so i then had to buy a plane ticket to fly here."

Gowan says says she was the last person to get on the 6:45pm flight.       

When asked why she had to get home so badly. 

She told us she had a big party to get to on the westside.
