Horizon Air Targeting a Return to Normal Tuesday

Posted: Updated:

YAKIMA, Wash. - Horizon Air canceled its first flight to Seattle Tuesday morning but said it hopes to return to a near normal schedule later in the day.

The first flight from Pasco to Seattle was also canceled.  In the morning, both Horizon and Alaska were operating at a limited capacity out of Sea-Tac International Airport and asking travelers to arrive at the airport only if they had confirmed online that their flight was operating.

Depending on the weather, the airlines said they would return to full service on Tuesday and try to accomodate all of the stranded passengers at Sea-Tac by Wendesday.

Elsewhere in the Northwest, flights in Spokane were facing delays with the possibilty of cancelations if the weather continued to get in the way.  The airlines said service in Portland continued to be held back because of the weather and that passengers should continue to check their flight status online.

Horizon says flights out of Yakima will be handled one at a time so passengers should go online to check the latest information available.
