The connection between two dynamic regions – Western Washington and Central Ohio – just got easier. Alaska Airlines launches daily nonstop service between Seattle-Tacoma International Airport and John Glenn Columbus International Airport. It’s the only nonstop flight between the two cities.
“Alaska Airlines continues to connect the West Coast with exciting new destinations across the country,” said Nicholas Haan, director of network planning at Alaska Airlines. “This new service to Columbus represents Alaska’s first destination in the Buckeye State, and our commitment to offer the most nonstop destinations from our hometown of Seattle.”
Columbus becomes the 91st nonstop destination served from Alaska’s largest hub in Seattle. Columbus is the largest city in Ohio and the 14th largest city in the nation. It’s also home to The Ohio State University, one of the largest universities in the country and home of the Buckeyes. Recently, technology companies have made sizeable investments in the Columbus area.
“Alaska Airlines’ new nonstop service between Columbus and Seattle enables us to better serve the increasing volume of passengers traveling between our two cities,” said Joseph R. Nardone, President & CEO of the Columbus Regional Airport Authority. “We are extremely pleased to welcome Alaska as a new airline partner at John Glenn International.”
