Alaska Airlines is offering another direct flight between Seattle and Tampa beginning in December. The flight, which begins Dec. 19, will be the second daily flight between the two cities and is part of a larger expansion of the airline's Florida destinations.

"As the leading airline in the Pacific Northwest, we're excited to offer even more service to sun-soaked locales this winter," said Brett Catlin, the airline's managing director of alliances and capacity planning.

Alaska Airlines will also offer a second daily flight between Seattle and Fort Lauderdale at the beginning of November, a second flight between Portland and Orlando beginning January 2020 and a third "peak day" flight between Seattle and Orlando beginning in January.
