History of Alaska Airlines

Alaska Airlines has historical roots all the way back to McGee Airways, an airline that was based in Anchorage in the 1930s. In the 1940s this airline changed its name to Alaska Airlines. In the 1960s Alaska Airlines bought its first jet, a Convair and moved its headquarters from Anchorage to Seattle. In 1986 Alaska Airlines bought Horizon Air and the following year Alaska Airlines merged with Jet America Airlines. Now Alaska Airlines operates a subsidiary airline with the name Horizon Air.
