Horizon Air is 25 years old. It started in September of 1981, as a company looking to provide a higher level of service on routes around the Pacific Northwest. At the time, no one could imagine it would become, by far, Portland's most preferred airline, flying to 25 non-stop destinations, with more than 100 departures a day.
In honor of the anniversary, the airline painted one of its signature aircraft, the Dash 8 Q400, with a special scheme. The scheme was unveiled at the Portland base late last week, and is already flying the Northwest skies.
