Alaska Airlines inaugurated nonstop service between Portland, Ore., and Atlanta on Monday.
"With these new flights to Atlanta, our Portland-area customers will enjoy nonstop service to a great southeastern city as well as connecting opportunities throughout North America via our partner Delta Air Lines' hub there," said Joe Sprague, Alaska Airlines' vice president of marketing, in a company press release. "Alaska Airlines has added eight new routes from Portland within the last 12 months as we continue our expansion from the Rose City, which includes new service to Dallas-Fort Worth on Sept. 16."
Alaska is offering a one-way fare of $149 to celebrate the new service. “Fares must be purchased by Wednesday, require a 14-day advance purchase, and are valid for travel from Sept. 9 through Nov. 20,” the airline said.
Alaska Airlines, a subsidiary of Alaska Air Group, serves 95 cities through an expansive network.
