Alaska Airlines connects Seattle and Cincinnati and now serves 95 nonstop destinations from its Pacific Northwest hub.
Newest Route To Cincinnati
As travelers take to the skies again, Alaska Airlines is ready to provide its guests with a brand-new destination: Cincinnati. Daily nonstop service between Seattle and Cincinnati/Northern Kentucky International Airport (CVG) started yesterday, May 20. The pandemic delayed the original start of service of Aug. 18, 2020.
The new route connects two dynamic regions of the country, each with thriving technology and business centers. The service also makes it convenient for guests flying from Cincinnati – known as the “Queen City” or “Queen City of the West” – to connect to dozens of destinations across the West Coast from Alaska’s hub in Seattle.
“For years we’ve heard from flyers and our corporate clients that they’d like Seattle’s hometown carrier to connect Cincinnati with the Puget Sound region,” said Brett Catlin, vice president of network and alliances at Alaska Airlines. “We couldn’t be more excited to rollout our newest Midwest destination adding the Cincinnati/Northern Kentucky region to the Alaska’s network while furthering our commitment to Seattle.”
Alaska will operate this route daily with the flight to Cincinnati departing Seattle in the morning and returning back to Seattle as an evening flight. The airline will operate Boeing 737 aircraft on this route.
Cincinnati becomes Alaska’s 95th nonstop destination from Seattle. With CVG Airport located in Northern Kentucky, this is the first time Alaska will have regularly scheduled service to the Commonwealth of Kentucky.
“The Cincinnati/Northern Kentucky community is excited to welcome Alaska Airlines and its strong West Coast presence to CVG,” said Candace McGraw, CEO of the Cincinnati/Northern Kentucky International Airport. “This new nonstop service from CVG to Seattle offers excellent schedule times and will enhance travel options for both business and leisure travelers in the tri-state region going to the Pacific Northwest, Hawaii and Alaska.”
From Seattle, Alaska’s guests can continue their journeys to other West Coast destinations or the islands of Hawaii. Seattle is also a gateway to Asia. With Alaska’s recent membership in the oneworld global alliance, along with additional airline partners, guests can connect to nonstop flights to places such as Tokyo, Seoul, Hong Kong and Singapore. Flyers can earn and redeem miles with Alaska’s highly-acclaimed Mileage Plan program to as many as 1,000 destinations around the world.
As Alaska Airlines continues to add midwest destinations, those living in the midwest can access the vast Alaska Airlines network from Seattle. Passengers can connect with flights to Alaska, Hawaii, Mexico, Central America and the west coast from Alaska’s Seattle hub.
New Central American Destination – Belize
Alaska also announced on Tuesday, new nonstop service to Belize City, Belize, in Central America from the West Coast. Belize will be the fourth country Alaska flies to from its West Coast hubs, joining Canada, Mexico and Costa Rica. Routes and schedules to Belize will be announced when ticket sales begin in early June.
“Our guests are eager for more eco-friendly leisure destinations, especially as they get vaccinated, and we’re ready to offer them terrific options,” said Brett Catlin, Alaska Airlines vice president of network and alliances. “Belize offers an unbeatable mix of sensational beaches, iconic cayes and rich heritage.”
Airline travel is in a state of rebound and Alaska Airlines is responding with new routes to Cincinnati, OH and Belize. For those living in Northern Kentucky and Southern Ohio, you will be able to experience the Northwest level of service that Alaska Airlines is known for. These midwest customers can join the Alaska Airlines Mileage Plan or have the miles flown credited to one of the many Oneworld member airlines that partners with Alaska Airlines.
