Portland travelers might have noticed a few Alaska Airlines flights were canceled early Wednesday morning.

But according to officials, the cancellations were planned.

Spokesman Bryan Zidar from Alaska Airlines told Fox 12 they pre-canceled several short flights from Portland International Airport one week ago to make more planes available during the holiday travel.

Zidar said all passengers on the canceled flights were notified last week and were accommodated on other flights.

Most of the flights are short “shuttle” flights that have other flight options during the day, like Portland to Oakland or Portland to Seattle.

Alaska Airlines said the cancellations helps them to be more flexible and allows them the highest operational performance during their busiest time of the year.
