Alaska Airlines Announces New Daily Nonstop Service Between Seattle and Monterey, California
Alaska Airlines announced Wednesday new daily nonstop service between Seattle and Monterey, California. The new daily year-round service will start on June 18, 2020 and will be the only nonstop service offered on the route.
Today, Alaska Airlines announced new year-round daily nonstop service between Seattle-Tacoma International Airport and Monterey Regional Airport (MRY) in central California. The new service will be available from June 18, 2020 and will be the only nonstop service offered between the two cities. Alaska Airlines is the leading carrier linking the Pacific Northwest with the Bay Area. In Wednesday’s announcement, Alaska Airlines’ Manager of Network Planning, David Besse said,
“We’re working hard to connect destinations where our guests want to fly along the West Coast. Our customers throughout the Central Coast won’t have to drive several hours to catch a flight from other Bay Area airports. They can stay close to home and fly directly to Seattle and connect with all the possibilities at our hometown hub.”
With the addition of Monterey service, Alaska Airlines will now serve 92 destinations from Sea-Tac this summer. Starting June 18th, the daily flight will depart Seattle at 11:10AM, arriving Monterey at 1:35PM. The return flight departs Monterey at 2:15PM and arrives in Seattle at 4:40PM. The route will be serviced with an Embraer E175 operated by Alaska’s sister airline Horizon Air. The aircraft features both First and Premium Class cabins and customers will enjoy the seat configuration with no middle seat and onboard WiFi.
Alaska Airlines and their regional partners operate 1,300 daily flights to 115 destinations in the US, Mexico, Canada and Costa Rica. The award-winning airline serves over 46M guests annually and has been named “Highest in Customer Satisfaction Among Traditional Carriers in North America” by J.D. Power for the last 12 years.
