New Alaska Airlines Flight to Portland

Posted: Updated:

Reno-Tahoe International Airport is going to have just a little more air traffic with a new flight from Reno to Portland.

Friday airport officials unveiled the new flight. Alaska Airlines is now offering one flight a day from Reno to Portland.

Officials with the airport say that new flight is significant, because it means there's an increased interest in flying to Reno, which is good news for the tourism industry.

"You know I think the good news for our community is that we have a strategic priority to increase our air service here, so were doing just that with having this announcement today," says CEO Marily Morah.

This marks the return of a flight that was canceled in 2009 during the recession.

Southwest Airlines also has a daily flight to Portland.
