company of Alaska Airlines and Horizon Air, has
reduced its mainline flying emissions intensity
by one-third over the last 10 years through

gallons of fuel since 2004, the equivalent of
taking one million cars off the road for a year.

financial results, enabling it to invest in
local communities and strengthen the long-term
future of its workforce.

accomplishments highlighted in Alaska Air

on environmental, social and economic goals.
