The Midwest and Pacific Northwest have yet another connection. Earlier this month, Alaska Airlines announced a new nonstop flight from Milwaukee, Wisconsin, to Portland, Oregon, adding to its Milwaukee-Seattle service that began in 2015.
The seasonal daily nonstop flights to Portland International Airport from General Mitchell International Airport will begin later this year, operating June 5 through August 26. Flights will depart daily from Milwaukee at 7:15 a.m. and arrive in Portland at 9:47 a.m., with return flights leaving Portland at 11:10 p.m. and arriving in Milwaukee at 5:02 a.m.
The flights will be operated with spacious Embraer E175 jets, equipped with Wi-Fi and featuring 12 seats in first class, 12 seats in premium class and 52 seats in the main cabin.
Portland has never been offered nonstop service from Milwaukee before, and it's expected to be a big hit among travelers from Wisconsin and northern Illinois.
The new Milwaukee-Portland nonstop route can be booked online at www.alaskaair.com.
