Comments from Alaska Airlines, Cleveland International Airport

“Ohio is an economic powerhouse with a vibrant cultural and corporate scene that’s underserved and primed for growth as we emerge from the pandemic,” said Brett Catlin, vice president of network and alliances at Alaska Airlines.

“Adding Cleveland to our network furthers our investment in the Buckeye State while adding an important nonstop link between Northeast Ohio and the Puget Sound.”

“Cleveland Hopkins International Airport is delighted to welcome Alaska Airlines to the city of Rock and Roll. They will provide nonstop service to Seattle, our top unserved destination,” said Robert Kennedy, Director of Airports, Cleveland Hopkins International Airport (CLE). 

Alaska Airlines has been recognized by J. D. Power over the past decade for their award-winning customer service. We’re proud to join the Alaska Airlines family of cities served.”
