Alaska Airlines, long familiar to flyers on the West Coast, is expanding its reach eastward. Today, the Seattle-based carrier begins new daily non-stop flights between Seattle and Philadelphia.
New Flights to Philly, San Antonio and DC
Earlier, Alaska began a new route between Portland and Washington, D.C.’s Reagan airport and in September, the airline kicks off service between Seattle and San Antonio. The carrier is not currently offering airfare specials on the new Seattle/Philly route – now priced at $240 each-way for flights in July and August – but the other routes are featured in Alaska’s latest sale, as follows:
