It is official; Alaska Airlines is once again growing its service, and this time they are expanding more in the southern United States. Although the airline has been flying to the south starting with Orlando, Florida since 2007, they have not flown to any destinations in South Carolina, North Carolina or Tennessee until now.

"Our loyal customers tell us they want new and exciting non-stop destinations, and we are listening," said John Kirby, the airline's vice president of capacity planning. "We're pleased to be adding new non-stop service to three highly-requested business and leisure destinations not currently served nonstop from Seattle. Nonstop flights equate to shorter travel times and more convenience for our customers."

Alaska Airlines will be flying from Seattle to Nashville one time daily starting on Sept. 23. On Oct. 1, Seattle to Raleigh Durham starts once daily, and the Seattle to Charleston leg will commence Nov. 16 with flights on Monday, Wednesday, Friday and Sunday.

The addition of these destinations brings Alaska Airlines' total destinations served from Seattle to 83, with 290 daily flights available.

Introductory one-way fares as low as $139 to Charleston and Nashville and $159 to Raleigh/Durham are on sale now. Tickets must be purchased by May 4 and travel completed by Nov. 18 for Nashville and Raleigh/Durham, and by Dec. 19 for Charleston.

The airline trumpeted some of the attractions in one of its newest destination in a blog post entitled, “Seattle to Nashville: From the Rainy City to the Music City.”
