New Flights Offered From BLI to Alaska

Start packing for your warm-weather, mountain adventure. Beginning May 22, Allegiant Air will offer nonstop flights to Anchorage, Alaska from Bellingham International Airport. Allegiant is drawing from the desires of many Northwest dwellers who can’t seem to get enough of the northernmost state. You can make reservations now for the twice-weekly service that runs through spring and summer.

After landing in Alaska’s largest city, amble over to a moose-sighting spot a few miles from the airport to (hopefully) meet your first moose. Other attractions include spectacular glaciers that dot the landscape, the intense natural beauty of the Chugach Mountain Range, and 135 miles of paved city bike paths. Need another reason to go to Alaska in the warm months? Starting in March, the amount of daylight increases by about five minutes each day, so activities can continue far into the night.

Allegiant will utilize their Bellingham-based Airbus A319 planes, which seat up to 156 passengers, making flying to Anchorage a breeze. Reservations for the Wednesday and Saturday flights can be made through August 13 through Allegiant Air. Be sure to schedule your adventure soon, when prices are lower.
