Alaska Airlines will begin to offer flights within the state of Alaska operated using the Embraer 175 aircraft.

The Seattle-based airline has 62 Embraer E175 jets in its fleet.  The jets have 76 seats, including 12 in first class, 12 in premium economy, and 52 in coach. There are no middle seats: All are either window or aisle.

The seats in the first-class cabin are 21” in width and have a seat pitch of 37”.  Seats in the airline’s premium-economy lite section are 18.25” wide and have a seat pitch of 34”, while seats in coach have the same width and a seat pitch of 31”.  Seats in first have power outlets.

“The E175 supports additional flying and keeps Alaskans connected within the state and beyond,” said Marilyn Romano, regional vice president of Alaska Airlines.

The new flights will be operated by Alaska’s Horizon Air subsidiary.  Horizon Air is a regional airline that was purchased by Alaska in 1986.
