SEATTLE, Oct. 7, 2021 /PRNewswire/ -- Alaska Airlines announced today the start of new nonstop service between Anchorage, our key hub in the state of Alaska, and Salt Lake City. With this flight – and our new one between Anchorage and Minneapolis-St. Paul – we will offer nonstop service connecting Alaska to the top 10 travel destinations in the continental U.S. this summer. That's in addition to our nonstop flights from Anchorage to Honolulu and Maui. Tickets for all flights now available for purchase on alaskaair.com.
"We're ready to welcome new and returning guests from the Salt Lake City area, as we provide Alaskans more nonstop options than ever before," said Marilyn Romano, Alaska Airlines' regional vice president.
