    Southwest Airlines is planning to drop its service to Portland starting Jan 6.

    Todd Woodard, spokesman at Spokane International Airport, said the decision follows Southwest’s move to drop service to Seattle at the start of this year.

    Southwest flies two flights to and from Portland daily.

    In terms of total passengers, Portland is the second most-frequent destination from Spokane, according to federal transportation numbers.

    Seattle ranks ahead of Portland.

    With six flights daily, Alaska Airlines flies more passengers to and from Portland than Southwest does, the data show.

    Looks like the article says it is dropping service from Spokane to PDX, not all PDX service. You had me all excited there for a minute.

    Yeah, I got a little worried, thinking I need to plan a trip up to PDX to use my companion pass before WN stops service there. The title of the article is misleading to us because it's a local article from a newspaper in Spokane.
