Alaska Airlines has this week announced nonstop flights between Portland and Nashville, which will launch next year.
The carrier continues to grow, and with this route have emphasised the music links that the new destination has with the world.
Without further ado, let’s get into it…
Alaska Airlines Announces Nonstop Portland-Nashville Flights…
|Portland – Nashville||9:00 a.m.||3:20 p.m.||Daily||737|
|Nashville – Portland||4:25 p.m.||7:35 p.m.||Daily||737|
Such a service means the airline will be the only carrier with a nonstop service between the two airports, offering a strong case for revenue capture and market share.
Commenting on this new route was Kirsten Amrine, the VP of Revenue Management and Network Planning for Alaska Airlines:
“We’re always focused on better connecting the Pacific Northwest with new nonstops in our network”.
“We know there’s a strong desire by our guests for an easier way to travel between Portland and Nashville.”
“Our new flight will link a pair of exciting regions that both have wide-ranging, festive entertainment and sports scenes as well as growing business centers.”
Alaska Airlines has a couple of route launches coming up, with a new nonstop service to Miami from Portland beginning on November 17, as well as Redmond/Ben resuming on November 23.
On top of this, services from Vancouver resumed over the Summer season.
All eyes will be on the carrier to see how this new service to Nashville will perform, as well as whether there will be scope to expand from daily flights onwards in the future.
