Aug 12, 2009

Alaska Airlines said it will introduce nonstop service between Portland, Ore. and Chicago on Nov. 16.

The airline, a subsidiary of Alaska Air Group Inc. (NYSE: ALK) of Seattle, has been flying nonstop to Chicago from Seattle for nine years.

Flights will leave Portland at 10:10 a.m. and arrive in Chicago’s O’Hare International Airport at 4 p.m. Flights will leave Chicago at 4:45 p.m. and arrive in Portland at 7:10 p.m.

‚ÄúThis new nonstop service provides customers with a critical link between Portland and the nation‚Äôs second-busiest airport, which has recently experienced significant capacity cutbacks by other airlines,‚ÄĚ said Andrew Harrison, Alaska Airlines‚Äô vice president of planning and revenue management, in a statement. He added the Chicago area is popular with business travelers and is also among the top 10 most-visited destinations from Portland International Airport.
