SEATTLE — Alaska Airlines today inaugurates service between Seattle and Milwaukee, Wisconsin; Seattle and Oklahoma City, Oklahoma; and Portland, Oregon and St. Louis.
“We’re excited to provide increased service breadth for our Northwest customers to the great cities of Milwaukee, Oklahoma City and St. Louis,” said John Kirby, Alaska’s vice president of capacity planning. “The E175 is new for the Alaska brand, and enables our entry into smaller, long-range markets. This regional aircraft will provide greater access to our Northwest hubs, while giving customers a superior experience on these longer flights.”
