Alaska Airlines expands in Portland

Alaska Airlines made this announcement:

Alaska Airlines is ramping up our growth in Portland to provide our guests with more choice and convenience. We’ve added more than 20 daily departures starting this summer to sought-after destinations from the Rose City. Our capacity has increased by 25%, improving connectivity and providing additional travel options.  

Our winter-spring seasonal flight between Portland and Redmond/Bend is so popular that we added a second daily roundtrip starting Oct. 1. We also extended our nonstop seasonal flying from Portland to Billings, Kansas City and Minneapolis until the end of the year – service was set to end in late summer. 

Alaska currently serves 53 nonstop destinations from Portland, including a few new destinations on our route map. On Nov. 17, we began nonstop service to Miami. Year-round flights to Nashville start on March 14. By this summer, we’ll have more than 100 average daily departures from Portland. 

We’re excited about our future in Portland. We’re putting the final touches on the design of our all-new Flagship Lounge at PDX. It’s currently scheduled to open in the 2025-26 timeframe with more than 10,000 square feet of space that will provide double the seating of our current Lounge spaces.

The atmosphere will be infused with the Pacific Northwest spirit like our award-winning Flagship Lounge at the N Concourse in Seattle. Lounge members and guests will enjoy a barista station with hand-crafted espresso beverages and drip coffee from Stumptown; complimentary beer, wine and house spirits; our signature Loungers to relax in; and a custom fireplace.
