Alaska Airlines Launches New Daily Service Between Seattle and Cincinnati
Alaska Airlines will launch new daily nonstop service between Seattle and Cincinnati/Northern Kentucky International Airport today. The new service expands the carrier’s network from their Pacific Northwest hub to 95 nonstop destinations.
On Thursday (May 20, 2021), Alaska Airlines announced the launch of new daily service between Seattle (SEA) and Cincinnati/Northern Kentucky International Airport (CVG). The service was originally planned to start on August 8, 2020, but was delayed due to the pandemic. With the new route, Alaska Airlines now offers 95 nonstop destinations from their Pacific Northwest hub. The new route connects two dynamic regions with thriving technology and business centers, while providing seamless one stop connections to dozens of West Coast Destinations via Alaska’s Seattle hub.
In Thursday’s announcement, Alaska Airlines’ Vice President of Network and Alliances, Brett Catlin, said,
“For years we've heard from flyers and our corporate clients that they'd like Seattle's hometown carrier to connect Cincinnati with the Puget Sound region. We couldn't be more excited to rollout our newest Midwest destination adding the Cincinnati/Northern Kentucky region to the Alaska's network while furthering our commitment to Seattle.”
Also commenting on the new route, Cincinnati/Northern Kentucky International Airport’s CEO, Candace McGraw, added,
“The Cincinnati/Northern Kentucky community is excited to welcome Alaska Airlines and its strong West Coast presence to CVG. This new nonstop service from CVG to Seattle offers excellent schedule times and will enhance travel options for both business and leisure travelers in the tri-state region going to the Pacific Northwest, Hawaii and Alaska.”
With CVG located in Northern Kentucky, the new route marks the first time Alaska Airlines has offered regularly scheduled service to the Commonwealth of Kentucky. The route will be serviced with a Boeing 737 featuring a three-class cabin including First Class and Premium Class, as well hundreds of free movies and TV shows available for viewing on personal devices, free texting on most flights and Wi-Fi connectivity for purchase.
Alaska Airlines and their regional partners serve over 120 destinations in the United States, Mexico, Canada and Costa Rica. The sustainability-focused carrier emphasizes Next-Level Care for guests, while offering low fares and award-winning service. Alaska has hubs in Seattle, San Francisco, Los Angeles, Portland and Anchorage. Along with their Global Partners, Alaska Airlines’ guests can earn and redeem miles on flights to more than 1,000 global destinations.
