Alaska Airlines to Offer the Most Nonstop Flights from Seattle

Alaska Airlines continues the expansion of its Seattle hub with the launch of new daily nonstop service to Indianapolis and Wichita, Kansas starting spring of 2017. With the addition of Indianapolis and Wichita, the airline will serve 89 nonstop destinations from Seattle, more than twice as many as its nearest competitor. Alaska is the only airline to fly nonstop from Sea-Tac International Airport to 35 of those destinations. This new route provides a link from the Midwest to tech hubs up and down the West Coast. Indianapolis has a thriving business community and is known as the Silicon Valley of the Midwest. Home to the Indianapolis Motor Speedway, "Indy" is considered the motorsports entertainment capital of the world. With two professional sports teams and a budding craft beer scene, the city is a desirable vacation destination. Alaska will fly to Indianapolis with fuel-efficient Boeing 737 aircraft. Onboard, customers will get to enjoy more of what they love with free and premium entertainment downloaded direct to customer devices, Pacific Northwest-inspired food and beverages, as well as custom leather seats with power outlets to charge laptops and personal devices for each customer. Alaska will fly to Wichita with 76-seat E175 jets, operated by SkyWest Airlines, which feature 12 seats in first class, 12 seats in premium class and 52 seats in the main cabin. The E175 boasts cabin dimensions on par with a narrow-body jet. Onboard amenities include Wi-Fi Internet access, and Alaska Beyond Entertainment, which includes free and premium entertainment direct to customer devices and power outlets in the first class cabin.

Located on the east side of the Ted Stevens Anchorage International Airport, the new hangar is located about a half mile from company's existing 37,500-square-foot facility. The company has hired local architect firm McCool Carlson Green and general contractor Kiewit to build the hangar, which is scheduled for completion in the second quarter of 2018. When company's new hangar will complete, it will measure 105,000 square feet, twice as big as company's existing Anchorage maintenance hangar. The new hangar will be able to house two 737-Max 9 aircraft, which will be the longest/widest plane in the carrier's fleet. In addition to the Anchorage hangar, the company has a maintenance hangar in Seattle. Built in 1954, company's ' current hangar was originally owned by Northern Consolidated Airlines. The original hangar was designed to accommodate Douglas DC-3 aircraft.
