Alaska Airlines Adds More “Sunny” Flying this Winter

Alaska Airlines is ready to take flyers to sunny destinations – from warm beaches and poolside lounge chaises to snow-covered mountains. The airline is increasing service to popular sun spots this winter with plenty of choices for nearly any vacation itinerary.

Increased service to Florida with eight daily nonstop flights:

  • Second daily flight between Seattle and Fort Lauderdale starting November 5
  • Second daily flight between Seattle and Tampa starting December 19
  • Second peak day flight between Portland and Orlando starting January 7
  • Third peak day flight between Seattle and Orlando starting January 7

The additional flights to Florida will be offered aboard Alaska’s Boeing 737-900ER aircraft.

Even more service to Hawaii with the introduction of a third daily flight between Seattle and Maui (starting November 21), in addition to a recently added third daily flight between Seattle and Honolulu.

Expanded access between Seattle and Bozeman, Montana, starting January 7 with a fourth peak day flight to this popular ski destination. 

More flights to Palm Springs

The summery California destination is a popular place for travelers, including those in the Pacific Northwest. Alaska will have 10 peak daily departures between the Pacific Northwest and Palm Springs this winter, including the addition of:

  • A third daily flight between Portland and Palm Springs starting January 7
  • A recently announced new daily flight between Everett (Paine Field) and Palm Springs starting Nov. 5

“As the leading airline in the Pacific Northwest, we’re excited to offer even more service to sun-soaked locales this winter,” said Brett Catlin, Alaska Airlines managing director of Alliances and Capacity Planning. “Whether it’s a weekend getaway to Palm Springs or the trip of a lifetime to Asia, Alaska, together with our Global Partners, is proud to offer more nonstops to more destinations than any other carrier serving Seattle.”
