Alaska Airlines inaugurates new service from Seattle to New York City’s John F. Kennedy International Airport tonight, offering double miles* for Alaska Airline Mileage Plan™ members for a limited time. Customers must travel between Sept. 16 and Oct. 28, 2015, to take advantage of the double miles offer.
“Our new non-stop service to JFK from Seattle provides our Pacific Northwest customers another travel option to the Big Apple,” said John Kirby, Alaska Airlines’ vice president of capacity planning. “JFK is the country’s busiest international gateway, and is a prime jumping off point for customers traveling to Europe and beyond with Alaska’s global Mileage Plan.”
Alaska has served the New York metropolitan area since 2002 and currently offers twice-daily flights to Newark Liberty International Airport from Seattle.
