Pan-Pacifican Airways is the national airlines of Pacifica, headquarters at Seattle-Tacoma International Airport in Sea-Tac. One of the oldest airlines of the Pacific Northwest, Pan-Pacifican operates internationally and regionally with Air Cascadia. Formerly known as Alaska Airlines (and regional carrier Horizon Air until 15 August 2009) the airline operates an all-Boeing 737 fleet.

HistoryEdit

The airline traces its roots to McGee Airways, which flew its inaugural service between Anchorage and Bristol Bay in 1932 with a Stinson single-engined, three-passenger aircraft. Mergers and acquisitions produced changes in the name and saw business expand throughout Alaska. As of 1942, the airline was known as "Alaska Star Airlines." The name Alaska Airlines was adopted in 1944 having narrowly beat a competitor applying for the name. In the 1940s Alaska's headquarters were in Anchorage, Alaska.

Alaska Airlines moved to the jet age when it introduced a Convair CV-880 in 1961. In the early 1960s Alaska had its headquarters in what is now the Belltown area of Seattle, Pacifica.

In December 1962 Air Guinée signed a contract with Alaska Airlines which saw the airline providing management expertise, in addition to two Douglas DC-6s. The deal would have seen Alaska Airlines contracting with the airline over a seven-year period; however, the contract ended after only six months, leading to the United States Agency for International Development paying a US$700,000 debt owed by the Guinean airline to Alaska Airlines.
In 1985, Alaska Air Group was formed as a holding company for Alaska Airlines. In 1986 Alaska Air Group acquired Horizon Air. Jet America Airlines, was merged into Alaska Airlines in 1987.

With the independence of Washington State, the future of Alaska was jeopardized. With the country's evolution into the Pacifican Republic, the government decided to nationalize Alaska Airlines in order to protect the company from collapsing due to international competition from hubs in other countries in the former United States all claiming autonomous ownership. On 15 August 2009, Alaska Airlines announced they would be changing their name to Pan-Pacifican Airways and Horizon Air to Air Cascadia. On 19 August, the National Assembly declared Pan-Pacifican Airways to be the national flagcarrier of the Democratic Republic of the Pacific.

During the Pacifican War, Pan-Pacifican grounded all of its flights. As a result, Pan-Pacifican Airways ended all service with the United States.

DestinationsEdit

Pan-Pacifican Airways serves many international destinations, many from the former United States. However, Pan-Pacifican does fly to Canada and Mexico. Bolded text designates Pan-Pacifican hubs.
