Alaska Airlines will operate a daily round-trip between Fairbanks in Alaska and Portland in Oregon from June 9 through September 2, 2013.
To promote the new service, Alaska Airlines is offering a $179 one-way fare, which must be purchased by February 16, for travel through July 9.
The introductory fare requires a 14-day advance purchase and is available on the new non-stop flight only for travel on Tuesdays, Wednesdays and Saturdays.

“Portland is a growing hub for Alaska Airlines and this non-stop flight will provide Fairbanks residents with not only a great West Coast destination to visit, but also another option to connect to Alaska Airlines’ expanding list of cities served from Portland International Airport,” says Marilyn Romano, Alaska Airlines’ regional vice president of Alaska.
“Beyond the added connectivity, there is a natural connection between Fairbanks and Portland, with many Alaskans having family members in the Rose City,” adds Romano.
From June 9, the carrier’s Portland-Fairbanks service will depart Portland International Airport (IATA code PDX) at 8:05 p.m. daily until September 1 and land at Fairbanks International Airport (FAI) at 11:05 p.m. local time.
In the other direction, Alaska Airlines’ flight will leave FAI daily from June 10 through September 2 at 12:15 a.m. and reach PDX at 5:04 a.m. local time.
