Horizon Air, flight attendants union reach tentative deal

Sea-Tac-based Horizon Air and the union that represents its nearly 500 flight attendants have reached a tentative deal for a new five-year labor contract.

The agreement comes nearly 18 months after the previous agreement became amendable.  Labor contracts in the airline and rail industries don’t expire, they become “amendable” at the end of their terms.

Flight attendants represented by the Association of Flight Attendants will vote on the proposal in mid-July.  The contract terms weren’t disclosed, but both the airline and the union said the deal includes pay raises, quality of life improvements and more flexible scheduling.

Horizon Air, which like its sister carrier, Alaska Airlines, is owned by the Alaska Air Group.  Horizon flies regional routes for Alaska under the Alaska brand.
