SEATTLE — Alaska Airlines, Seattle's hometown airline, is growing again with non-stop service from its Seattle hub to Charleston, South Carolina, Nashville, Tennessee and Raleigh/Durham, North Carolina beginning fall 2015.
     
"Our loyal customers tell us they want new and exciting non-stop destinations, and we are listening," said John Kirby, the airline's vice president of capacity planning. "We're pleased to be adding new non-stop service to three highly-requested business and leisure destinations not currently served nonstop from Seattle. Nonstop flights equate to shorter travel times and more convenience for our customers."

Charleston has been named the top U.S. city by Condé Nast four years in a row. Flights to Charleston will connect Boeing employees with one of their largest manufacturing plants outside the Pacific Northwest. Nashville, the music capital of the south, is the largest market from Seattle not currently served by Alaska, and Raleigh/Durham service will connect two of the country's top biotechnology hubs.
     
By this fall, Seattle's largest airline will serve 83 destinations from Seattle with 290 peak daily flights—two-and-a half times that of Alaska's nearest competitor.
