Alaska Airlines just announced new routes to several popular destinations, including Miami.

Let’s dig into the brand-new routes!

Alaska Airlines Launches New Service From 3 Cities

Seattle to Miami and Cleveland

On June 16, Alaska announced that it launched service between its Seattle (SEA) base and 2 new cities, Miami (MIA) and Cleveland (CLE).

The new route to Cleveland becomes the third Ohio city Alaska Airlines services, joining Columbus (CMH) and Cincinnati (CVG).

And the route to Miami marks Alaska’s 100th nonstop route from Seattle. Alaska already flies to nearby Fort Lauderdale (FLL). Still, the Miami route offers sun-seeking travelers a closer airport to popular locations such as Wynwood, Brickell, and South Beach.

Boise to Idaho Falls and Las Vegas

The airline also announced new nonstop daily routes between Boise (BOI) and Idaho Falls (IDA) and Las Vegas (LAS), flying an average of 31 daily nonstops from Boise to 15 destinations.

Anchorage and Salt Lake City

A new nonstop flight between Anchorage (ANC) and Salt Lake City (SLC), the 22nd nonstop destination from Alaska’s largest city, begins June 18.

Demand for New Destinations

Northeast OhioSouth Florida, southern Idaho – we’re flying new routes and heading to new destinations where our guests want to go,” said Brett Catlin, vice president of network and alliances at Alaska Airlines, in a statement.

“We’re seeing strong tickets sales for all our new nonstops. That’s another indication that so many of us are ready to get out and go places,” the statement continued.

How To Earn and Redeem Mileage Plan Miles

Of course, you’ll be able to earn and redeem Alaska Mileage Plan miles on these new routes.

For instance, a round-trip economy ticket from Seattle to Miami in September will only set you back 30,000 miles and $11.20 in taxes. Flights to Cleveland are pricing out similarly.
