Alaska Air Group reported February operational results earlier this week, for its mainline operations operated by subsidiary Alaska Airlines Inc. and for its regional flying operated by subsidiary Horizon Air Industries Inc. and third-party regional carriers SkyWest Airlines and Peninsula Airlines, a subsidiary of RAVN Air.

As a result of unusual winter weather in the Pacific Northwest in the month of February, our operation experienced significant challenges. Impacts of the storm are reflected in the operational results as shown below.
