In Airfares, Alaska Travelgram by scott


Anchorage has a new airline coming to town: Virgin America.

Starting June 6, the airline will offer six nonstop flights per week between Anchorage and San Francisco. There’s no northbound flight on VirginAmericaInFlight5Tuesday and no southbound flight on Wednesday. Introductory fares on the flights are available for as little as $396 roundtrip. Travelers must purchase these tickets no later than tomorrow, Feb. 13, 2013.

All flights are operated on Virgin’s Airbus 320s. The northbound flight from San Francisco departs at 8:00pm, arriving at 11:55pm. The southbound flight departs Anchorage at 12:50am, arriving in San Francisco at 6:25am.

Although there are connecting flights for other destinations (Chicago, Las Vegas, Los Angeles, Philadelphia and San Diego), no special introductory fares are available to these cities–yet.

Jennifer Thomas of Virgin America said the strong point of the airline’s service is their on-board customer experience. “We offer Live TV in every seatback,” she said. “Also, with the RED entertainment platform, we offer on-demand food and beverage service, so you don’t have to wait for the cart. Also, we offer seat-to-seat chat and shopping right from the screen.”
