A Conversation with Alaska Airlines' President: Regional Transportation and Connectivity

Alaska Airlines - Puget Sound’s hometown airline and BDA member - will provide the audience with the “30,000-foot view” on growth and its impacts on the Downtown core. Ben Minicucci, President of Alaska Airlines, will share regional trends in aviation, opportunities, and challenges facing commercial air service.
