Establishing a link to Seattle have been goals for both New Orleans and Tampa for years, while Alaska will compete directly with Delta Air Lines directly in Detroit.

“This provides even more nonstop flights to the places Seattle needs to go, and further strengthens our growing U.S. route network,” said Sprague, in the statement.
