SEATTLE — Alaska Airlines is adding daily, nonstop flights this summer between Fairbanks and Portland.

Service starts June 9 and continues through Sept. 2.

The Seattle-based airline says Portland International Airport is a growing hub that adds the option of connecting to Fairbanks while giving Fairbanks residents another West Coast destination.

One-way fares are $179 if purchased before Sunday.
