From today the airline is begun serving Portland, Oregon, and over the next 10 days additional flights will commence to Boise, Idaho; Los Angeles; Las Vegas; San Diego, San Francisco and San Jose, California.
A third daily flight between Seattle and Salt Lake is also starting today.
The carrier will operate the flights with B737s, Bombardier Q400 aircraft (operated by Horizon Air) and 70-seat CRJ-700s (flown by SkyWest Airlines).
The airlines’ SVP of communications and external relations, Joe Sprague, commented: “Salt Lake is located about 600 miles from our expansive West Coast Network, and these new routes offer travellers easy connections on us and our 12 international airline partners.”
These 12 international airline partners – Aeromexico, Air France, AA, BA, Cathay Pacific, Delta, Emirates, Fiji Airways, KLM, Korean Air, LAN and Qantas – are joined by two regional partners, PenAir and Ravn Alaska.
Alaska began serving Salt Lake City in April 2013 with two daily flights from Seattle.
