On Thursday (October 28, 2021), Alaska airlines announced the launch of new daily roundtrip service between Seattle and Cleveland starting June 16, 2022, complementing existing service to Columbus and Cincinnati.

In Thursday’s announcement, Alaska Airlines’ Vice President of Network and Alliances, Brett Catlin, said,
“Ohio is an economic powerhouse with a vibrant cultural and corporate scene that's underserved and primed for growth as we emerge from the pandemic. Adding Cleveland to our network furthers our investment in the Buckeye State while adding an important nonstop link between Northeast Ohio and the Puget Sound.”
Also commenting on the new Seattle-Cleveland service, Cleveland Hopkins International Airport’s Director, Robert Kennedy, added,
“Cleveland Hopkins International Airport is delighted to welcome Alaska Airlines to the city of Rock and Roll. They will provide nonstop service to Seattle, our top unserved destination.
