Alaska Airlines Friday launched new nonstop service from Sea-Tac Airport to Tampa.
The new daily service to the Florida city is among of several new routes Alaska is beginning to serve this summer.
The SeaTac-based carrier last week launched new service to New Orleans.
The airline also is scheduled to begin new nonstop service before summer’s end to Baltimore, Detroit and Albuquerque.
Never miss a local story.
Alaska is expanding its route map in part as a response to Delta Air Lines’ expansion of its new flight offerings in Seattle. The Atlanta-based carrier will have 86 daily flights from Sea-Tac by August.
The new flight to Tampa leaves Sea-Tac at 8:50 a.m. and arrives in Tampa at 5:30 p.m. It returns from Tampa at 6:30 p.m. arriving back at Sea-Tac at 9:25 p.m.
