Parent company of Alaska Airlines to reduce flights

    Juneau, Alaska (KINY) - Alaska Air Group will be cutting flights.

    That's according to a report in The Seattle Times.

    The report says capacity will be cut by 10 percent next month and at least 15 percent in May.

    The newspaper reports the company deemed the cutbacks necessary with the reduction of bookings spurred by the coronavirus.

    The airline will initially cut flights on high-frequency routes, for which passengers can be accommodated on other flights.

    In addition, CEO Brad Tilden cut his base salary to zero, according to the newspaper account.
