Just in time for winter, Alaska Airlines launches 2 new warm-weather routes

Alaska Airlines has launched a pair of warm-weather getaways as winter weather approaches.

The airline announced Friday that it will begin flights between Seattle/Everett’s Paine Field Airport and Honolulu, and between Portland, OR, and Miami.


“Demand for travel to leisure destinations to relax and recharge remains strong, especially to sun and fun destinations as cooler weather sets in,” said Kirsten Amrine, Alaska Airlines’ vice president of revenue management and network planning, in a statement. “Our new nonstop service between Seattle/Everett and Honolulu is our first scheduled service between Paine Field and Hawaii. And our new coast-to-coast route between Portland and Miami connects two destinations that were the largest underserved cities for each airport.


With the addition of the new Honolulu flights, Alaska will offer six daily nonstop flights between the Seattle area and Oahu, serving Hawaii from eight different cities on the West Coast: Anchorage, Seattle/Everett, Seattle, Portland, San Francisco, San Jose, Los Angeles and San Diego. In total, Alaska flies to the four main Hawaiian islands of Oahu, Maui, Kauai and the Big Island.


The new Portland-Miami service, first announced in June, is the airline’s fourth nonstop Florida destination, joining Fort Lauderdale, Orlando and Tampa.

The new routes come as Alaska plans to expand its Portland hub even further, launching a new flight from the city to Nashville in March 2024. When that flight begins, Nashville will become the airline’s 53rd destination from Portland.

The airline also plans to launch seasonal nonstop service from New York’s John F. Kennedy International Airport to Anchorage in June 2024, which will be the only direct flight between the two cities. The flight will be the longest in Alaska’s network at more than 3,300 miles.
