Alaska Signs Interline Agreement With Southern Airways

https://www.bizjournals.com/seattle/...ier-opens.html

SeaTac-based Alaska has signed an interline agreement with Southern Airways Express, a Florida-based carrier that operates in the gulf and mid-Atlantic states as well as Hawaii.

The deal aims to help Alaska grow its nonstop flight traffic to Seattle and Portland from Batimore and Pittsburgh. The agreement gives passengers in those markets direct Alaska connections at the Pittsburgh or Baltimore-Washington airports, said Mark Cestari, chief commercial officer of Southern Airways.
Not sure how useful, but maybe it will provide some inter-island redemption/booking in Hawaii in the future.

wrt BWI/PIT, Southern recently lost their Essential Air Service waivers for Hagerstown MD and Franklin/Oil CIty PA (although they still have some presence at both)

Seems like a good add that can add some passengers.

It's an interline agreement not a partnership, so AS can, depending on the type of agreement, check baggage through, sell their flights on AS stock (like AS can do for DL, UA, and many others), and that's about it.
