Alaska Airlines is continuing its eastward expansion with three new routes — two of them offering daily service. Nashville (BNA), Raleigh-Durham (RDU), and Charleston (CHS) will all see non-stop service from Seattle beginning this fall.
There are also some low introductory fares on these routes when purchased by May 4. Pay as little as $139 each way to Nashville (travel by November 18), $159 to Raleigh-Durham (travel by November 18), and $139 to Charleston (travel by December 19). Discounted fares are also being advertised from Spokane, Portland, and Anchorage.
Charleston is the furthest of the new destinations, at 4,830 miles round-trip from Seattle, and with the same day turns any of these could be a mileage run if you’re willing to tolerate higher CPMs.
