Alaska Airlines Announces Nonstop Service from Bellingham to Honolulu – Preemptive Strike to Allegiant?

Alaska Airlines announced that it will begin daily service in January from Bellingham, Washington, to Honolulu, the first time the airport between Seattle and Vancouver has had nonstop service to the islands.

This wouldn’t have really piqued my interest, except that with Allegiant has purchased 757s that they intend to use to Hawaii, and since they already serve 8 destinations from Bellingham, it wouldn’t be crazy to think they’d use the airport to launch the new service.  And given Allegiant’s historical desire to stay away from competition on its routes, Alaska may be trying to lock up the airport before Allegiant announces anything.  In which case it wouldn’t be shocking to hear that Long Beach would be the first Hawaiian destination Allegiant announces.
