Alaska Airlines is adding a new route to its map, with the carrier launching flights from Portland to Nashville starting on March 14, 2024.
The new service will complement Alaska’s existing service out of Seattle and will offer another way for folks from the Music City to travel out west, as Portland is a major connecting city for Alaska.
Alaska’s new flight between Portland and Nashville will operate daily, year-round, starting on March 14. Alaska claims there’s significant demand for this type of route, so they’re putting a Boeing 737 on the service, offering first-class and economy-class seating.
Here’s the new flight schedule:
- Depart Portland at 9:00 a.m., arrive into Nashville at 3:20 p.m.
- Depart Nashville at 4:25 p.m., arrive into Portland at 7:35 p.m.
With the early evening arrival into Portland, it will likely be possible to still catch the last bank of connecting flights to other destinations for those not staying in Portland itself.
Searching for flights on May 1, the flight costs $224 in Main Cabin and $699 in First Class one-way to Portland, with the same exact pricing for the return. With only 1 flight per day and a significant demand, prices will likely reflect this non-stop offering.Hot Tip:
Alaska operates 3 flights a day to Nashville from Seattle, so if you’re looking for more flight options and pricing, check out the departures from there. Because there are several flights, pricing can be cheaper, too.
Portland and Nashville will finally be connected with a non-stop flight, allowing tourists to visit Music City, and locals to connect to 1 of Alaska’s 53 destinations served out of Portland. The flight also has convenient schedules, as it doesn’t depart from Portland too early and leaves Nashville in time to make final connections on the West Coast.
