Alaska Airlines has announced it will add nonstop, daily service between Seattle and Pittsburgh next fall. 

This new service is currently the only nonstop flight offered from Seattle-Tacoma International Airport to Pittsburgh International Airport, the airline said. The new route provides a link from the West Coast to the business community in Pittsburgh, which is continuing to grow as more technology companies look to establish a presence in the city.

The new flight will begin September 6, 2018, departing daily from Seattle at 8:25 a.m. and arriving in Pittsburg at 4:10 p.m. (all times local). The return flight will depart Pittsburgh at 5:20 p.m. and arrive in Seattle 7:50 p.m. Alaska Airlines said it will operate the new service on Boeing 737 aircraft.

The new flight launches as Alaska Airlines continues to add new destinations based on demand. The company recently started nonstop service between San Diego and Mexico City, as well as two new daily, nonstop flights from San Jose, California, to Austin, Texas, and Tuscon, Arizona

Just this week the airline announced it will stop flying to Cuba in anticipation of falling demand due to the latest travel restrictions announced by President Donald Trump. According to a statement issued by the airline, about 80 percent of the passengers on Alaska’s Los Angeles to Havana route traveled under a U.S. allowance for individual “people-to-people” educational travel; the most recent policy changes eliminate that allowance.
