Two airlines started service on Sunday at the Boise Airport. Southwest Airlines began nonstop service to San Diego, while Alaska Airlines added mainline service for one flight each day to Seattle.

“Southwest’s San Diego service will operate one flight daily, Monday through Friday, utilizing a Boeing 737. Southwest Airlines joins Alaska Airlines as the two carriers providing nonstop service to San Diego,” said Boise Airport spokesman Sean Briggs.

“Alaska has traded out a smaller regional jet for a Boeing 737 mainliner for the flight to Seattle. This upgauge in aircraft adds approximately 70 seats daily to the Seattle market. This change will impact just one of their eight daily flights to Seattle. They are one of two airlines to fly nonstop to Seattle, along with Delta Air Lines,” he added.

Southwest Airlines offers nonstop service to seven destinations from Boise; Las Vegas, Oakland, Phoenix, San Diego, Sacramento and Spokane, with seasonal service to Chicago Midway.

Alaska Airlines offers nonstop service to nine destinations from Boise; Lewiston, Portland, Reno, Sacramento, Salt Lake City, San Diego, San Jose, Seattle and Spokane.
