Alaska Airlines Announces Bellingham-Honolulu Service
Alaska Airlines will inaugurate nonstop service between Honolulu and Bellingham, Washington in five months. The first-ever scheduled flight between the two destinations begins Jan. 7, 2011. The route is expected to open up travel to Northwestern Washington and the Lower mainland of British Columbia.
“Alaska Airlines is proud to call the Pacific Northwest home. So we’re delighted to offer Bellingham its first-ever nonstop scheduled service to Hawaii,” said Joe Sprague, Alaska Airlines’ vice president of marketing. “Our new Honolulu flights will allow travelers from north of Seattle and the Lower Mainland to take advantage of our low fares, award-winning service and Mileage Plan earning opportunities via an easy-to-access, nearby airport.”
Alaska Airlines currently flies between Bellingham and Las Vegas while its sister carrier, Horizon Air, offers Bellingham-Seattle service.
The flights will be operated with Boeing 737-800 aircraft, accommodating 16 passengers in first class and 141 in the main cabin.
