Starting Nov. 8, Alaska Airlines will launch new seasonal service between Bellingham, Washington, and Maui.
"Our growing service out of Bellingham gives customers across Western Washington and Southern British Columbia more ways to reach sunny Hawai'i," said Joe Sprague, Alaska Airlines' vice president of marketing. "With Alaska Airlines' great low fares, no charge for a carry-on bag and award-winning service, travelers can enjoy peace of mind that they're getting the best value and service for their money."
Sprague said British Columbia residents can save even more money flying out of Bellingham International Airport, located 22 miles south of the Canadian border, thanks to lower government taxes and airport fees.
Mike McCartney, president and CEO of the Hawai'i Tourism Authority, said, "The new route provides visitors from the Northwest with increased ease of access to visit the Hawaiian Islands while also boosting Maui's economy and distributing the benefits of tourism across our state. We estimate the flights will provide $16 million in visitor spending and $1.7 million in tax revenue annually."
