Beginning March 10, Alaska Airlines flights departing from Walla Walla Airport in the morning will leave at 6:25 a.m. instead of 6:50 a.m. The change will likely impact the travel arrangements of students traveling home for spring break. Daily evening flights will also be arriving earlier, at 8:24 a.m. instead of 8:50 a.m.

“This is just one of the things the airport has been working with Alaska [Airlines] on. By getting into Seattle earlier, it’s going to help us make more connections in the morning,” said Walla Walla Airport Manager Jennifer Skoglund.

According to Skoglund, Alaska Airlines usually makes around two major changes to its flight schedules per year, of which this is the first.

“This is the first major schedule change [at Walla Walla Airport] in quite some time,” she said.

The change will be in effect at least until the end of the year.
