One of the cities benefiting most from our network growth with the E-175 is Redmond, Oregon (RDM). Located in Central Oregon, 144 miles southeast of Portland, Redmond is one of the fastest-growing industrial and residential communities in the Northwest. Redmond/Bend is also home to Redmond Air Center, with one of the West’s premier smoke-jumping, firefighting and training installations.
Alaska Air Cargo operates a full-service cargo office in Redmond, conveniently located inside the airport terminal with a dedicated customer service counter and cargo-savvy agents. This regional location sees a variety of business, from tires to medical specimens and supplies as well as loads of mushrooms, especially in the fall, when the famous Oregon mushrooms are harvested.
Alaska Air Cargo provides nonstop service from Redmond to San Francisco, Los Angeles, San Diego, Seattle and Portland. This allows shippers more opportunity to ship directly to and from Central Oregon, with easy connections to 100+ locations nationwide — without having to rely on trucking freight to Portland or Seattle to reach an our air cargo network.
