Alaska Airlines boosts routes

Alaska Airlines will begin daily nonstop service between Salt Lake City and Portland (Oregon), Los Angeles, San Diego and San Jose (California) from 9 June. It will also add a third nonstop flight to its existing service between Salt Lake City and Seattle.

Alaska Airlines first began service between Seattle and Salt Lake City on 4 April, 2013.

"Salt Lake City has long been a top requested market by our customers and we are pleased to add to our successful Seattle-Salt Lake City flights with additional service from four other West Coast gateways," said Joe Sprague, Alaska Airlines' vice president of marketing. "This new service connects travellers with Alaska's strong network on the West Coast.”

The routes will be operated with Alaska Airlines Boeing 737 aircraft and SkyWest Airlines 70-seat CRJ-700 regional jets.

To celebrate the new services, Alaska Airlines is offering members of its Mileage Plan double miles on these routes. The threshold for Mileage Plan members to earn elite-level status is only 20,000 miles – 5,000 fewer miles than most other airline frequent flier programmes.  www.alaskaair.com
