Expanding its wings further in the Pacific Northwest, Alaska Airlines is adding a new nonstop service from Portland to Atlanta, set to take flight on October 1 and available to adventurers year-round, the carrier has revealed. According to a statement obtained by WPRI, flyers can start snagging tickets this coming weekend on the airline's website, marking yet another upgrade to its Portland offerings.

Travelers will have more reasons to choose the Rose City's leading airline, now boasting service to a total of 54 nonstop destinations; this includes recently commenced routes to Miami and imminent flights to Nashville beginning March 14, in a statement by Alaska Airlines, the company announced an increase of their flight capacity by 25%, an ambitious move geared to enhance connections and diversity of travel choices but some would argue it's a bold maneuver betting on resurgence in travel after years of pandemic-induced stagnation.

Alaska Airlines is pitching a premium experience to patrons with amenities like ample legroom in the pricier cabins, a forgiving no-change-fee policy, and a variety of fares to fit diverse wallets, so says Kirsten Amrine, the vice president of revenue management and network planning for Alaska Airlines, as she told Alaska Air's newsroom.

Emphasizing their Mileage Plan offerings, Alaskan Airlines stakes its claim to be the West Coast's go-to airline, according to a PR Newswire report, where flyers can accrue travel perks faster than you can say "takeoff"; with power outlets aplenty, passengers have the option to enjoy complimentary movies and TV shows on their own devices, by tapping into the aircrafts' state-of-the-art satellite Wi-Fi—a luxury that, while it comes with a fee, most certainly aims to keep the connected globetrotter satisfied in their cloud-dusting journeys.
