Alaska Airlines adds nonstop routes from PDX to Tampa, New Orleans

The Port of Portland is sharing this news on behalf of Alaska Airlines:

You've already booked long-awaited summer travel plans to be reunited with family and friends. Great! But have you thought about a little something for yourself when the weather turns gloomy and cold this winter? A sun-drenched beach, a decadent poolside cabana, an all-inclusive oceanfront resort? We're ready to get you there.

Alaska Airlines is now offering several new nonstop routes to make it easier to escape to places known for wintertime sun and fun:

  • Just in time for the holidays, we'll begin weekly, seasonal service between San Francisco and Cancun on Dec. 16, offering our Bay Area guests a convenient way to get away to eastern Mexico.
  • We'll launch two new flights from Portland on Dec. 16 to Tampa and New Orleans – the only nonstops from the Rose City to these two Southern destinations. These routes are also seasonal service, each with several flights a week.
  • On Nov. 19, we'll say howdy to another new route connecting Palm Springs and Austin. It's the only nonstop flight between the heart of the Coachella Valley and the Texas capital with flights five times a week.

"Since March, our bookings for leisure travel have exceeded what they were before the pandemic. For many of our guests, there's an increased confidence that comes after being vaccinated. They were cooped up for well over a year – now they're ready to relax, enjoy and explore," said Brett Catlin, vice president of network and alliances at Alaska Airlines. "With these new routes, we can whisk them away to destinations that have a warm sparkle in the wintertime."

Tickets for all flights are available for purchase now on alaskaair.com.
