SEATTLE — Seattle’s hometown airline, Alaska Airlines, today launched nonstop daily service between Seattle and Dulles International Airport. With the addition of Dulles, Alaska customers now have nonstop access to three Washington D.C.-area airports from Seattle, as Alaska also serves Reagan National Airport and Baltimore-Washington International Airport.
“Alaska has the most non-stop flights from Seattle to the Washington D.C. area,” said John Kirby, Alaska’s vice president of capacity planning. “Travelers benefit from our industry leading on-time performance, as well as the only year-round 20-minute baggage guarantee, to speed them on their way once on the ground.”
Customers on Alaska flights can enjoy Alaska Beyond, a new flight experience where they can watch free entertainment on their own device, enjoy Pacific Northwest-inspired food and beverages, relax in custom, power-equipped leather seats, and experience Alaska’s award-winning service.
