Alaska Airlines adds new nonstop from Anchorage to Minneapolis-St. Paul

SEATTLE, March 19, 2021 /PRNewswire/ — Alaska Airlines announces today new seasonal service at one of the airline’s key hubs in Alaska with new nonstop service between Anchorage and Minneapolis-St. Paul. This additional nonstop flight means Alaska Airlines will provide the most nonstops from the state of Alaska than any other carrier.

The new service to the Land of 10,000 Lakes is in addition to the newly added nonstop service between Anchorage and Las Vegas, Denver and San Francisco, along with the expansion of year-round service to sunny Phoenix and Maui.

"We are looking forward to welcoming more guests to the Great Land in 2021 and expanding service for the residents of Alaska," said Marilyn Romano, Alaska Airlines’ regional vice president. "With a massive network across the state and our naturally socially distanced outdoor spaces, this route offers easy access to Denali, kayaking, sightseeing, and the most sustainably managed fishing in the world. Alaska is a safe and attractive travel destination for friends and family."
