Horizon Air pilots, represented by the Airline Professionals Association, Teamsters Local 1224 (IBT), have voted to ratify a new wage agreement. IBT represents Horizon’s more than 800 pilots. 

“Thank you to the IBT, their team and company representatives who worked diligently to reach a settlement,” said Carlos Zendejas, Horizon Air vice president of flight operations. “This agreement recognizes the valuable contributions of the pilot group, while also allowing the company to react and compete in changing market conditions for pilot demand.”

The agreement, which passed with 74% of the vote, includes competitive wage increases aimed to attract and retain pilots.

“The Airline Professionals Association Executive Council at Horizon Air is proud to support an agreement that provides a well-deserved mid-contract wage improvement to our more than 800 members,” said Hunter Chumbley, chairman, Horizon Air Pilots Executive Council. “The wage increases from this agreement provide recognition to their great work every day.”

Airline employees are covered by the Railway Labor Act, so labor agreements do not expire; they become amendable and remain in effect until a new contract is ratified.

Horizon Air is a subsidiary of Alaska Air Group and flies to 63 cities across the United States, Canada and Mexico.
