06-27-13 - New Air Service on Alaska Airlines to Portland, OR
Reno-Tahoe International Airport is adding more air service with today’s announcement of a new non-stop flight between Reno and Portland on Alaska Airlines.
The new service to the City of Roses begins November 8, 2013, and goes on sale today with a low introductory fare of $89 one-way. It brings the number of non-stop flights between Reno and Portland to three each day.
“We have been working tirelessly to build our air service during these tough economic times and the hard work is paying off for our airport and community,” Krys Bart, President/CEO of Reno-Tahoe International Airport, said. “It is now up to our region to fill the seats so we can maintain our level of service.”
The new routes will be operated for Alaska by Horizon Air using 76-seat Bombardier Q400s. Travelers can enjoy Horizon’s award-winning onboard service, which includes complimentary Starbucks coffee, soft drinks, and (for passengers 21 and older) wines and microbrews.
The flight will depart Reno at 1:15 p.m. and arrive in Portland at 2:50 p.m. daily. The return flight will depart from Portland at 11:10 a.m. and arrive in Reno at 12:45 p.m.
