All of us at Alaska and Horizon are deeply saddened by last night's unauthorized flight with the Horizon Q400 aircraft that resulted in the lost of life for the individual involved.
We're working closely with the authorities to help answer the many open questions that they have, and this cooperation started last night. Our top priority is the safety of our guests and our employees. Simply put, there is nothing more important to us. We're working closely with the FBI, the NTSB and the FAA to better understand the circumstances behind this incident.
Safety is our number one goal, there's nothing more important to us. Last nights event is going to push us to learn what we can from this tragedy so that we can ensure that this does not happen again at Alaska Air Group or at any other airline.
