Published on : Friday, November 1, 2013

Alaska AirlinesAlaska Airlines is growing again in Portland, Ore., with new nonstop flights between the Rose City and Tucson, Ariz., today, and between Portland and Reno/Tahoe, Nev., starting Nov. 8.


“Alaska Airlines is proud to give our customers two new destinations from our Portland hub, with daily flights to the sun and sights of Tucson, as well as to Reno—‘the biggest little city in the world’ with Tahoe’s world-class ski areas nearby,” said Joe Sprague, vice president of marketing.


To help celebrate the airline’s new service to Reno/Tahoe, 1998 Olympic gold medalist Jonny Moseley will join Portland passengers for the inaugural flight. Moseley, Chief Mountain Host at Squaw Valley, one of Tahoe’s premiere ski areas, recently competed on “Skating with the Stars.”


“We’ve been working hard to bring new air service to the Tahoe region, and we’re thrilled about the addition of the Alaska Airlines flight,” said Andy Wirth, CEO of Squaw Valley and Alpine Meadows, and board member of the Reno-Tahoe Airport Authority Board. “With the increased access, we’re thrilled to welcome new skiers and riders from the Pacific Northwest to Squaw Valley and Alpine Meadows this winter.”


Reno-Tahoe International Airport is located just 45 minutes from many of the Lake Tahoe ski resorts, including Squaw Valley and Alpine Meadows—making it a great airport for skiers and riders seeking winter fun in the mountains.
