Alaska Airlines has been busy announcing new routes for most of this year with Mexico, California, Montana, Chicago, and Austin all benefiting from the airline’s expansion. Its latest service announcement is probably its biggest of the year with Alaska Airline confirming that it will return to Miami for the first time in over 10 years with a non-stop service between Seattle and Miami next year.
Alaska’s new route to Miami
Alaska Airlines has said that Miami will become its 100th non-stop destination out of Seattle when it launches service between the two cities in summer 2022.
The new service will launch on 16 June and will operate daily on the following schedule:
AS305 SEA 07:15 – 16:15 MIA (Daily)
AS728 MIA 17:40 – 21:10 SEA (Daily)
The route will be operated by an Alaska Airlines 737-900 which I’ll discuss a little later in this article.
Brett Catlin, vice president of network and alliances at Alaska Airlines had this to say about his airline’s latest news:
“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”
“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.”
With Alaska airlines now a member of the oneworld alliance, this new service will be seen as good news for flyers in the Pacific Northwest. Miami is a major hub for American Airlines, and Alaska’s new route between Seattle and Miami will give travelers a new option if they wish to connect to/from American’s Caribbean and South America routes.
Right now, the only non-stop service between Seattle and Miami is a redeye operated by American Airlines, and while that service will remain the most useful for onward connections (its early morning arrival time means it can be used to connect to a wide number of services out of Miami), this new Alaska Airlines service offers something a little different and for travelers terminating in Miami, something a little more civilized too 🙂
Alaska Airlines will operate its new route between Seattle and Miami using a Boeing 737-900 aircraft.
This aircraft offers a First Class cabin with 16 seats that are 21″ wide and that have 41″ of pitch (legroom) as well as an Economy Class cabin that has 24 “Premium Class” seats (17″ wide and 35″ of pitch) and regular Economy Class seats that are 17″ wide and that have just 31″ of pitch.
Alaska Airlines has announced that it will operate a new route between Seattle and Miami starting next summer. From 16 June 2022, the airline will use a Boeing 737-900 to offer a daily service between the two cities with tickets already on sale.
It would be nice to see AS expand their offerings from SFO & LAX, too. Who wants to fly from (é.g.) SFO to Miami or New Orleans by way of SEA???
