Well, this is new! Alaska Airlines has announced that it is introducing a subscription-based product designed to allow frequent flyers to save as they use the airline to fly within California, Nevada, and Arizona. 'Flight Pass' is already live with subscriptions starting from $49 per month.
Alaska Airlines has just announced what it's calling "a significant, multi-million dollar renovation and expansion of [its] most popular Lounges" which will see select lounges in Seattle and Portland get a short-term makeover before, longer-term, they're moved to new locations within their respective airports.
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.
I don't recall seeing this announced but it looks like Alaska Airlines has brought back a promotion that it ran throughout that last football season in which it offered discounts on fares based on the performance of Russell Wilson, the Seattle Seahawks quarterback.
Alaska Airlines has launched a new "buy one, get one free" offer for Main Cabin travel between October and mid-December. First Class fares don't qualify for the BOGO promotion but a 10% discount on First Class fares is being offered. Restrictions apply (e.g. blackout dates), but if you're considering a trip that's covered by the Alaska Airlines route map, this deal could be a nice money saver.
Alaska Airlines has today opened its new lounge in San Francisco (more on that in a separate post) and the airline has used this as an opportunity to remind flyers that it is introducing a new two-tier lounge membership program in October which will see it (mostly) increasing the cost of membership.
Bay Area residents rejoice. Alaska Airlines has today announced that it's adding three new routes to Mexico for Winter 2021/22 and all three routes will be originating in San Francisco. Alaska Airlines already boasts more non-stop flights between the West Coast and Mexico than any other airline and this news just shores up that lead.
In the past three months, Alaska Airlines has announced new routes out the Pacific Northwest, new routes to California's wine country, and new routes between California and a number of National Parks in Montana. Now the airline is back with news that it will be launching four new winter routes out of three of the West Coast cities that it serves.
At the beginning of last month, Alaska Airlines announced four new seasonal routes out of California's three biggest airports and now the airline has announced that it's about to offer more services to the very heart of wine country from a variety of airports in Southern California.
It was less than a week ago that Alaska Airlines announced four new routes out of California and today the airline is back again with another announcement of new routes that should please travelers based in the Pacific Northwest.
