Don’t you love it when getting away to a getaway gets easier?  

Alaska Airlines, in partnership with Kenmore Air, is ready to take you to one of Western Washington’s iconic vacation spots: the San Juan Islands, located north of Seattle.  

You can book connecting flights now on from destinations along the West Coast to the San Juans. You’ll fly on Alaska through Paine Field-Snohomish County Airport in Everett and connect on Kenmore Air’s modern fleet of Cessna Caravan aircraft to Friday Harbor on San Juan Island or Eastsound on Orcas Island.
