Alaska Airlines today will inaugurate nonstop, year-round service between Bellingham, Washington and Las Vegas, Nevada. The thrice-weekly service between the two cities will expand to include a fourth weekly flight starting August 3.

“The addition of Bellingham-Las Vegas nonstop service gives our customers another convenient alternative for traveling between the Pacific northwest and the lower mainland of British Columbia and the popular destination of Las Vegas,” said Steve Jarvis, Alaska’s vice president of marketing, sales, and customer experience.

The new two-hour, 30-minute flights will depart Thursdays, Fridays, and Sundays from Bellingham International Airport at 5:35 pm Pacific time and arrive at McCarran International Airport in Las Vegas at 8:05 pm Central time. Return flights will depart Las Vegas at 2:00 pm Central time, arriving in Bellingham at 4:35 pm Pacific time. A fourth weekly flight will depart Mondays beginning August 3.

The airline will use fuel-efficient Boeing 737-700 aircraft on the route, seating 12 passengers in first class and 112 in the main cabin.
