Alaska Airlines is spreading its wings again, with new service to the Midwest from the Rose City.
On Thursday, the Seattle-based carrier announced that starting Feb. 18, 2016, it will add three new daily non-stop routes from its hub in Portland, Ore., to Kansas City, Minneapolis-St. Paul and Omaha.
“We continue to expand our Portland service portfolio with new non-stops to America’s Heartland”, said John Kirby, the airline’s vice president of capacity planning, in a statement. “With these new routes, Alaska Airlines will offer more than three times the number of non-stop destinations from the Rose City than any other carrier,” he said.
The new routes are in addition to new service between Portland and Austin, set to begin Nov. 5, 2015, that the carrier announced last month.
