Aerodrome and commercial developers see the provision of services for Columbus' best unprovided target as an important instrument of commercial and industrial growth. Wednesday's announcements that Alaska Airlines will introduce a non-stop flight between Columbus and Seattle in March are significant in several respects. The main objective, which is not achieved without interruption, is handled for both aerodromes; on a daily flight averaging 121 passenger passages between towns in both direction.
The John Glenn Columbus International Airport will thus provide a third West Coast passenger stop after Los Angeles and Oakland, California, connecting them with non-stop services to the West of the United States and Canada as well as more than half a dozen Asian destinations. It is also the first Ohio town to be serviced by Alaska Airlines, which is valued for both commercial and recreational use.
Alaska Airlines could expand its Columbus services if Seattle services go well, with San Francisco becoming the most beloved Columbus non-stop airline. Columbus and Franklin County provided a total of $1.2 million in sales warranties to Southwest Airlines in 2015 to ensure an on-going day trip to the Oakland metropolitan area in the San Francisco area, but San Francisco's global services remain an important target for leading Columbus companies.
"Today's announcements refer to more than one plane. It' s about getting connected to the West Coast and beyond," said Stephen Lyons, the Columbus Partnership Senior VP Operations, at the Alaska Airlines launch on Wednesday. The John Glenn offers nearly $450,000 worth of Alaska Airlines incentive tickets over two years for everyday flights to and from Seattle.
Alaska Airlines' John Kirby, VP of capacity and alliance at Alaska Airlines, said Columbus had been watching Columbus for some considerable amount of now, and chose to join on the basis of the city's powerful journey to Alaska's home town of Seattle and its overall business state. The Columbus facility will be operated by Alaska with one of the 46-seater Airbus A320s it purchased at the end of 2016 from Virgin America.
Kirby said that, dependent on market demands, the company could expand to another model with up to 180 passengers. Reservations for the new services, which start on 7 March, were opened on Wednesday. leaving Columbus at 18:15 and arriving at 20:25 on Pacific Day. Depart Seattle at 9:45 and arriving at 17:15.
