Direct flights to Boise now available to Palouse residents

Alaska Airlines announced Thursday it is adding a direct flight from the Pullman-Moscow Regional Airport to Boise. 

The University of Idaho entered an agreement with Alaska Air to guarantee profit for the first three years of flight service. The university agreed to pay up to $500,000 each year if the airline does not make 10% more than the cost of operations on the service.

Adding a flight to Boise has been an ongoing discussion of the airport board of directors.

Flights will begin August 18th.
