Alaska Airlines Announces Service Between Salt Lake City and Four West Coast Cities


Alaska Airlines Mileage Plan members can earn ‘double miles' toward elite status

12/6/2013 4:57:03 AM

SEATTLE — Alaska Airlines will begin daily nonstop service between Salt Lake City and Portland, Ore., Los Angeles, San Diego and San Jose, Calif., starting June 9, and will add a third nonstop flight to its existing service between Salt Lake City and Seattle. Sale fares on the new flights will be available for booking Tuesday, Dec. 10. Flight times and start dates are listed below.

To celebrate the new service, Alaska Airlines is offering members of its Mileage Plan double miles on these routes, which count toward status in the airline's MVP, MVP Gold and MVP Gold 75K elite-level programs.

"Salt Lake City has long been a top requested market by our customers and we are pleased to add to our successful Seattle-Salt Lake City flights with additional service from four other West Coast gateways," said Joe Sprague, Alaska Airlines' vice president of marketing. "This new service connects travelers with Alaska's strong network on the West Coast. In addition, our customers will enjoy double miles that apply toward elite status in our award-winning Mileage Plan program."

The threshold for Alaska Airlines' Mileage Plan members to earn elite-level MVP status is only 20,000 miles — 5,000 fewer miles than most other airline frequent flier programs.
Alaska Airlines first began service between Seattle and Salt Lake City on April 4, 2013.
