Alaska Airlines has this week added services from Seattle to Honolulu as well as between Portland and Miami.
It is understood both of these services will operate on a daily year-round basis, and are available for booking already.
Without further ado, let’s get into it…
Alaska Airlines Announces Seattle-Honolulu & Portland-Miami…
“Travel demand to leisure destinations to relax and recharge remains strong, especially to sun and fun locations as cooler weather settles in”.
“Our new nonstop between Seattle/Everett and Honolulu is our first regularly scheduled service connecting Paine Field to Hawaii.”
“And our new coast-to-coast route between Portland and Miami links two destinations that were the largest underserved cities for each airport.”
Adding to this was Daniel Chun, the airline’s VP for Hawaii:
“For those traveling between Honolulu and Washington State, flying into Seattle/Everett can be a less congested option to access the greater Seattle area”.
“With this new flight, we’ll fly a combined six nonstops a day to the two Seattle area airports from Oahu, providing our leisure and business travelers with a variety of flight times that work best for them.”
Looking ahead, all eyes will be on Alaska Airlines to see how these new routes will perform over the Winter season, a period typically colder in the Portland and Seattle areas.
The fact that such services are daily year-round highlights a lot of demand interest for the route already.
