REDMOND, OR -- Alaska Airlines announced Monday the addition of two more flights in and out of Central Oregon.


"This summer, we’re adding two daily seasonal round trips: One between Seattle and Redmond and one between Portland and Redmond. That begins June 7th," said Halley Knigge with the airline.  


She tells KBND News the seasonal flights will be available through August 22nd.


"Bend is a really popular destination for customers up and down the west coast in the summertime," Knigge says. "Many people like to visit, and this is great, not only for customers in Portland and Seattle, but for customers connecting through those cities up and down the west coast."


The new Seattle flight will arrive in Redmond at 9:00 a.m., and return to Seattle at 9:30 a.m. Portland’s new flight will arrive at Roberts Field just after 7:30 p.m. and return at 8:05 p.m. Roberts Field officials say the new flights provide an additional 152 daily seats for Redmond passengers.
