Alaska Airlines was founded in 1932 as McGee Airways and later became Alaska Airlines in 1944. It has a rich history of serving the Pacific Northwest and Alaska.
While it originally focused on serving destinations in Alaska, the airline has expanded its route network to cover a significant portion of North America, including the continental United States, Hawaii, Canada, and Mexico.
The primary hub for Alaska Airlines is Seattle-Tacoma International Airport (SEA). It also has secondary hubs in Los Angeles International Airport (LAX), San Francisco International Airport (SFO), and Portland International Airport (PDX).
