Alaska Airlines will add a nonstop, daily flight between Fairbanks, Alaska, and Portland, Ore., starting June 9 through September 2, 2013. To kick off the new service, the airline is offering a $179 one-way fare, which must be purchased by Feb. 16 for travel through July 9.
“Portland is a growing hub for Alaska Airlines and this nonstop flight will provide Fairbanks residents with not only a great West Coast destination to visit, but also another option to connect to Alaska Airlines’ expanding list of cities served from Portland International Airport,” said Marilyn Romano, the airlines’ regional vice president of Alaska. “Beyond the added connectivity, there is a natural connection between Fairbanks and Portland, with many Alaskans having family members in the Rose City.”
