Alaska Airlines brings Boise and Idaho Falls closer with new nonstop flight

Starting June 16, Alaska Airlines will begin year-round daily flights to Idaho Falls and Las Vegas from Boise.

With these additional routes, they will fly up to 36 daily departures from Boise to 15 destinations by next summer – all nonstop.

“We have deep roots in the Treasure Valley and our commitment to our guests in southern Idaho keeps getting stronger,” said Brett Catlin, vice president of network and alliances at Alaska Airlines.

“Reconnecting Boise and Idaho Falls with nonstop air service will drive economic activity and enable further growth of our Boise focus city, including today’s announcement of new nonstop service to Vegas.”

The service between Idaho Falls and Boise will offer an easier, more convenient way for guests to connect with Idaho’s capital city, which is important for businesses and leisure travel.

The added route will also link all key population centers across the state to Boise, joining existing flights from the Spokane/Coeur d’Alene and Pullman/Moscow areas.

“We are so pleased that Alaska Airlines is bringing more intrastate connectivity to the residents and businesses of Boise,” said Boise Airport Director Rebecca Hupp.

“Nonstop service between Boise and Idaho Falls enhances both communities, making business and leisure travel more convenient between the two”.

“The flexibility Alaska Airlines’ new intrastate route provides to local residents is immeasurable,” said Idaho Falls Mayor Rebecca Casper.

“It provides the perfect work-life balance to those looking to live in the beautiful Idaho Falls region while still maintaining access to Boise for business reasons or connections onward for leisure travel. It’s a win for everyone.”

We have more good news for our Boise guests. Starting Nov. 19, we begin flying daily nonstop service from Boise to another heavily requested destination in the desert: Phoenix.
