Alaska Airlines announces new daily service between Seattle and Cincinnati, OH beginning August 18, 2020.
Cincinnati becomes the 93rd nonstop destination served from Alaska’s hub in Seattle. The route will connect two dynamic regions, each with thriving technology and business centers. The flights also make it convenient for travelers to connect to dozens of destinations across the West Coast using Alaska’s Seattle hub.
“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, Alaska Airlines managing director of capacity planning and alliances. “We couldn’t be more excited to rollout our newest Midwest destination adding the Cincinnati/Northern Kentucky region to the Alaska Airlines network while furthering our commitment to Seattle, where we will offer 350 daily departures this summer.”
“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. “The 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, our guests can continue their journeys to other West Coast destinations or the islands of Hawaii. Seattle is also a gateway to Asia with nonstop flights on our Global Partners to Tokyo, Hong Kong and Singapore. Flyers can earn miles with Alaska’s highly-acclaimed Mileage Plan program while flying one of our 16 Global Partners to more than 800 destinations around the world.
Alaska Airlines continues its move into America’s heartland. This route will fill in the gap between Chicago, IL, and Nashville, TN. With Alaska’s extensive regional network, passengers from the west coast will now be able to fly to the southern Ohio area. Alaska was smart to have the outbound flight leave and return flight arrive in Seattle to allow for regional flight connections.
