Alaska Airlines launches new route to Philadelphia from Seattle-Tacoma Airport

  • Alaska Airlines launched two routes in the last week; one Californian intra-state service and one transcontinental route. On 5 June, Alaska Airlines’ regional sister airline Horizon Air began operating daily between San Diego, CA (SAN) and Santa Rosa, CA (STS) in California’s Wine Country north of San Francisco, using its 76-seat Q400 aircraft. This is the airline’s fourth route to Santa Rosa after Los Angeles, Seattle and Portland. Notably, the airline’s route between Las Vegas and Santa Rosa was just dropped at the start of June. On 11 June, Alaska Airlines expanded its main base at Seattle, WA (SEA) with another route to the US East Coast; Philadelphia, PA (PHL). Flights are operated daily with 157-seat 737-800 aircraft, competing with US Airways’ four daily flights. “Philadelphia is one of the largest cities we don’t currently serve from Seattle,” said Joe Sprague, Alaska Airlines’ VP marketing.
