Rose City meets Music City. Alaska Airlines adds new Portland-Nashville nonstop

We're the largest carrier in Portland offering 53 nonstop destinations in 2024

SEATTLE, Nov. 9, 2023 /PRNewswire/ -- Alaska Airlines is doing it again – we're adding another nonstop from the Pacific Northwest to a much sought-after destination in the heart of Tennessee: Nashville. We continue to grow in Portland with a new route that'll connect the Rose City with Music City – a counterpart that also loves great food, dynamic music and a vibrant culture. Our daily, year-round flights start on March 14, 2024. Tickets are available for purchase now at

We'll be the only airline with nonstop service between Portland and Nashville with a convenient mid-morning departure from Portland and a late afternoon departure from Nashville, which will become our 53rd nonstop destination from Portland next year. Alaska has been the largest carrier in Portland for more than 20 years. We now serve more destinations nonstop from Portland outside of the Pacific Northwest (Washington, Oregon and Idaho) than we did in 2019.

"We're always focused on better connecting the Pacific Northwest with new nonstops in our network," said Kirsten Amrine, vice president of revenue management and network planning for Alaska Airlines. "We know there's a strong desire by our guests for an easier way to travel between Portland and Nashville. Our new flight will link a pair of exciting regions that both have wide-ranging, festive entertainment and sports scenes as well as growing business centers."
