Santa Barbara Airport Announces Non-Stop Service to Portland, Oregon

Santa Barbara Airport (SBA) officials are very pleased with Alaska Airlines’ announcement to begin new non-stop seasonal service to Portland (PDX), Oregon beginning June 4, 2012 and continuing through August 25, 2012.

The daily two-hour flight will depart at 11:50am from Santa Barbara and fly non-stop to Portland using a 70-passenger Bombardier CRJ-700 regional jet. The introductory fare will be $99 one-way.

“We are thrilled to have new non-stop service to Portland. We hope that the community will support the service and demonstrate to Alaska that Santa Barbara-Portland is a viable market,” said Karen Ramsdell, Santa Barbara Airport Director.

“These new routes give our customers additional options to access some of the most popular summer markets out of Portland,” said Joe Sprague, Alaska Airlines’ vice president of marketing. “With these low introductory fares, summer travel between Santa Barbara and Portland has never been more affordable.”

Like all Alaska Airlines flights, travelers will enjoy onboard complimentary Starbucks coffee, soft drinks, and (for passengers 21 and older) wines and microbrews.
