Alaska Airlines grows in Seattle and Portland

  • Alaska Airlines inaugurated services on two new domestic routes in the course of last week. On 7 November, the carrier commenced operations on the 2,200-kilometre route from Seattle, WA (SEA) to Omaha, NE (OMA), while a day later services from Portland, OR (PDX) to Reno, NV (RNO) followed. Omaha is new in Alaska Airlines’ network and the daily service is operated using SkyWest Airlines’ CRJ 700s. Daily flights on the 700-kilometre route from Portland to Reno are in fact a resumption (last served in 2009) and are operated using Horizon Air’s Q400s. Southwest Airlines provides competition in the market from Portland to Reno, which it serves with eight weekly flights. Alaska Airlines also offers flights to Reno from Seattle (thrice-daily) and San Jose in California (12 weekly).
