Miami becomes the 100th nonstop destination from Seattle. Next summer, Alaska will serve the two major airports in South Florida with the addition of Miami. Since 2012, Alaska has provided nonstop service between Fort Lauderdale-Hollywood International Airport and Seattle, and next summer they’ll offer twice-daily nonstops. They also provide wintertime seasonal service from Fort Lauderdale to Los Angeles; Portland, Oregon; San Diego; and San Francisco.
New Destination: Miami
Tropical Miami! The popular South Florida vacation spot becomes Alaska’s 100th nonstop destination from Seattle-Tacoma International Airport (SEA). The airline will start daily nonstop service between Seattle and Miami on June 16, 2022.
“We’ve landed on a perfect location for our 100th nonstop from our home airport in Seattle. Miami is a cultural hub for travelers around the world with its incredible nightlife, art, music, architecture and food,” said Brett Catlin, vice president of network and alliances at Alaska Airlines. “With our new daily nonstop launching in June, we’ll be connecting two cruise capitals just in time for summer while teeing up easy fall getaways to South Florida, the Caribbean and beyond.”
For Alaska’s West Coast passengers, Miami International Airport opens a new frontier. The airport is a large hub, including for several of our fellow oneworld alliance members, providing easy and convenient connectivity to flights across the Caribbean and Latin America. Think Seattle to Miami then onward to locations such as Rio de Janeiro, Buenos Aires or the U.S. Virgin Islands.
“Congratulations to Alaska Airlines and their team for reaching this century milestone for nonstops out of SEA,” said Lance Lyttle, Managing Director of SEA Airport. “This is a great example of how SEA continues to serve the traveling public as one of the best-connected airports in the country, both domestically and internationally. Alaska has been a major partner in that vision.”
“We greatly look forward to welcoming Alaska Airlines back to Miami-Dade County for the first time in 10 years,” said Miami-Dade County Mayor Daniella Levine Cava. “Their daily flights will give our residents another attractive travel option to Seattle, the Pacific Northwest and connections to the beautiful state of Alaska.”
“It will be an honor to once again have America’s fifth-busiest airline providing Seattle service at MIA,” said Ralph Cutié, MIA Director and CEO. “We appreciate Alaska Airlines’ decision to add Miami to its Florida network and make us their 100th nonstop destination from Seattle.”
New Miami Service
Alaska Airlines will begin new daily nonstop service between Seattle and Miami on June 16, 2021. Here is the flight schedule that will depart Seattle in the morning and turn around with the return flight back.
Alaska Airlines will fly the route using Boeing 737-900 aircraft with first class, premium economy and economy seating.
Alaska is continuing its presence in Florida by adding Miami to Fort. Lauderdale, Fort Myers, Orlando and Tampa. Alaska used to serve Miami years ago and until the new service starts, the closest that you could get to Miami was to fly into Fort Lauderdale which is 27 miles away. Alaska Airlines will serve 100 destinations nonstop from their Seattle hub. Tickets for the new Miami service are already on sale at alaskaair.com.
