Alaska Airlines will begin daily non-stop service in June linking Salt Lake City with Portland in Oregon, and with the California cities of Los Angeles, San Diego and San Jose.
In June Alaska Airlines will also add a third daily non-stop flight to its existing service between Salt Lake City and Seattle.
Sale fares on the new flights will be available for booking from Tuesday, December 10.
To promote the new service, Alaska Airlines is offering members of its Mileage Plan double mileage points on these routes, which count toward status in the airline’s MVP, MVP Gold and MVP Gold 75K elite-level programs.
“Salt Lake City has long been a top requested market by our customers and we are pleased to add to our successful Seattle-Salt Lake City flights with additional service from four other West Coast gateways,” says Joe Sprague, Alaska Airlines’ vice president of marketing.
