Alaska Airlines Launches Nonstop Service from Everett to Anchorage
Seattle, WA–Alaska Airlines’ new daily — nonstop service between Everett and Anchorage — begins Nov. 30, 2022, according to a press release.
Tickets for flights between Paine Field-Snohomish County Airport and the state of Alaska’s largest city are available for purchase now on alaskaair.com.
“We listened to our guests who live and work from north of Seattle to the Canadian border. They told us one of their top requests is a nonstop flight between Everett and Anchorage,” said Brett Catlin, vice president of network and alliances for Alaska Airlines, in the press release. “There’s a significant need and demand to connect workers and businesses in the two regions – from the fishing industry to aviation – in addition to the desire for leisure travel.”
New Flight Details and Historical Significance
“This is extra sweet due to Alaska Airlines’ history: Anchorage served as the first flight location for Alaska Airlines and its founder Linious McGee back in 1932,” said Garry Clark, president and CEO at Economic Alliance Snohomish County.
With the new nonstop from Everett, operated by Alaska Airlines sister airline Horizon Air, Anchorage becomes the farthest destination and longest flight we’ll serve from that airport, and it’s also our first route to fly north from it.
All times local.
What We Think
The introduction of Alaska Airlines’ nonstop service from Everett to Anchorage is a strategic move that taps into a rich vein of both business and leisure travel.
Not only does it honor the airline’s historical roots, but it also enhances connectivity for industries and offers new travel opportunities for residents in the Pacific Northwest.
This development is likely to be welcomed by the community and could stimulate further economic and tourism growth.
