Alaska Airlines to launch 737-800 flights between Seattle and Cincinnati

The airline noted that passengers flying from Cincinnati/Northern Kentucky International Airport will be able to connect to flights to Hawaii and Asia.

Alaska Airlines will launch nonstop daily service between its Seattle-Tacoma International (SEA) base and Cincinnati/Northern Kentucky International (CVG) on Aug. 18.

CVG will become the 93rd destination Alaska serves nonstop from SEA. According to the Cincinnati Enquirer, the route will be operated with 159-seat Boeing 737-800s.

“For years we’ve heard from flyers and our corporate clients that they’d like Seattle’s hometown carrier to connect Cincinnati with the Puget Sound region,” Alaska Airlines managing director-capacity planning and alliances Brett Catlin said.

CVG CEO Candace McGraw said: “The new nonstop service from CVG to Seattle offers excellent schedule times and will enhance travel options for both business and leisure travelers in the tri-state region going to the Pacific Northwest, Hawaii and Alaska.”

Alaska Airlines noted passengers will be able to connect at SEA for flights to TokyoHong Kong and Singapore.
