Bottom Line:
This increase in service from Alaska Airlines will bring its daily peak departure total to up to 290 flights a day out of it’s Seattle hub.

  1. As someone who lives in Charleston, I’m super excited about this new route. As a Delta flyer, this opens up some great options and it is the very first cross country direct flight out of CHS. So that’s super news for us.
