- Northwest residents from Vancouver, British Columbia, to Seattle will have more options to escape the rain starting Nov. 8 when Alaska Airlines launches new seasonal service between Bellingham, Wash., and Maui.
"Our growing service out of Bellingham gives customers across Western Washington and Southern British Columbia more ways to reach sunny Hawaii," 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.
