Saskatoon anyone?

Authorities in Saskatoon, Saskatchewan are talking with officials at Sea-Tac-based Horizon Air about establishing air service between the two cities.

Saskatoon, a city of some 207,000 people, wants more air service connections to cities in the Western United States.

The city’s only U.S. airline service is now provided by Northwest Airlines, which connects Saskatoon to Minneapolis.

Horizon isn’t the only airline hearing Saskatoon’s entreaties. The city’s airport authority is also talking with Delta, United and Frontier airlines about initiating service.

Horizon is no stranger to Canada. It connects Victoria, Vancouver, Calgary, Kelowna, Kamloops and Edmondton to Seattle.

Saskatoon is 768 airlines from Seattle, about 100 miles more distant than San Francisco is from the Emerald City.
