Are you based in Seattle or Portland and looking to escape the cold? Listen up because Alaska Airlines has launched 2 exciting, nonstop flights to much warmer destinations.
Let’s dive right in!
Daily Flights to Honolulu and Miami Now on Sale
Alaska has launched year-round daily nonstop flights between Seattle/Everett (PAE) and Honolulu (HNL) and Portland (PDX) and Miami (MIA).
The airline says that with the launch, it will fly 6 nonstops daily to its 2 Seattle area airports from Oʻahu. Miami is now the fourth Florida city served by Alaska from Portland, joining Fort Lauderdale (FLL), Orlando (MCO), and Tampa (TPA).
“Travel demand to leisure destinations to relax and recharge remains strong, especially to sun and fun locations as cooler weather settles in,” said Kirsten Amrine, Vice President of Revenue Management and Network Planning for Alaska Airlines.
Amrine also noted that Seattle’s Paine Field service is Alaska’s first regularly scheduled service connecting to Hawaii. The airline currently flies nonstop from nearby Seattle (SEA) to Honolulu, as well as Kona (KOA), Kahului (OGG), and Kauai (LIH). Alaska also offers flights from several West Coast destinations to Hawaii, including Anchorage (ANC), Los Angeles (LAX), Portland, San Diego (SAN), San Francisco (SFO), and San Jose (SJC).
How To Book Alaska Flights With Cash or Miles
These flights have been loaded into Alaska’s system and are now bookable through AlaskaAir.com.
You’ll find round-trip PAE-HNL flights starting at 45,000 Alaska MileagePlan miles in economy (or $279), while PDX-MIA flights can be found for around 28,500 miles round-trip (or $176).
Make sure to book using a credit card that rewards you for general travel, flights, or purchases with Alaska. You can earn Alaska MileagePlan miles by transferring points from Marriott Bonvoy, taking flights with the airline, or having a co-branded credit card.Hot Tip:
Before you checkout, make sure to take a look at your Amex Offers for a $60 statement credit after spending $300 or more on a single purchase with Alaska. This offer expires on December 17, 2023, and can considerably cut down the cost of a flight after you’ve met the minimum spending requirement.
