Alaska Airlines is postponing a trip to Alaska because of safety concerns over a new flight plan, the airline said in a statement.
The Alaska Airlines Delta Air Lines Alaska Airlines, which also operates Alaska Air Lines, has been flying passengers from the San Francisco airport to Alaska since October, after a number of passenger deaths at the airport were linked to a flue gas leak.
The company said Friday it was taking a two-week holiday to reevaluate safety concerns with its flight plan.
The airline said there are no immediate plans to cancel the trip, but the airline has asked that travelers to stay home until further notice.
Alaska Airlines has been conducting flights from San Francisco to Anchorage and has had at least one safety issue in recent years.
A passenger died in 2014 when a flume valve broke on a flight from Anchorage to Alaska.
The flume leaked into a passenger’s lungs and he died later at a hospital.
In 2015, a passenger died after inhaling fumes while aboard a flight in Los Angeles.
Alaskans are often the first in line to board a flight when it lands at San Francisco International Airport, and many travel to Alaska to visit relatives.
The state has seen a dramatic increase in passenger deaths linked to flue leaks since 2009, when at least 13 people died.
