Alaska Airlines has announced Salt Lake City as the newest destination for its Flight Pass subscription.

Ski in Salt Lake City

In preparation for winter and ski season, Alaska has added flights to Salt Lake City from San Diego and San Francisco to its Flight Pass.

“Utah is a popular ski and outdoor recreation destination among our California subscribers, and we’re happy to now make those trips more affordable and accessible with Flight Pass. We’re also excited to introduce Flight Pass to Utah and provide Salt Lake City travelers with an affordable option for their frequent travel to California.”= Neil Thwaites, Regional Vice-President of California, Alaska Airlines

In December, Alaska Airlines will fly to Salt Lake City 54 times from San Diego and San Francisco. 41 of the 54 flights will be from San Francisco, with one daily flight until December 15 and 16, when the airline will increase to two daily flights to SLC. The airline’s schedule goes between one and two daily flights for the remainder of the month.

Recent Alaska Airlines news

Last week, Alaska Airlines placed its largest-ever aircraft order. The Seattle-based airline added 52 Boeing 737 MAX aircraft to its existing order. The new order will increase Alaska’s fleet of Boeing’s latest-generation aircraft from 94 to 146 by 2027.

Furthermore, the airline says that the new order puts it in a position to operate as many as 250 MAX aircraft by 2030. By 2023, the airline will have retired its Airbus aircraft and become a Boeing-only operator.

“This investment secures aircraft to optimize our growth through the next decade, which we know will be a formidable competitive advantage. We’re proud of the strong financial foundation that uniquely positions Alaska to make this commitment to our future, and of the fantastic partnership we share with our hometown aircraft manufacturer at Boeing.” – Ben Minicucci, CEO, Alaska Airlines

In 2023, a new aircraft is expected to be delivered to Alaska Airlines every ten days. The airline is headquartered in Seattle, just a few miles from Boeing’s 737 factory in Renton, making deliveries a simple process for Alaska.
