Alaska Airlines is launching a daily nonstop flight between Colorado Springs and Seattle.

Alaska Airlines will begin flights in November with a 70-seat regional jet, but may expand the route with a Boeing 737 aircraft that carries between 124 and 181 passengers.
According to the Colorado Springs Gazette, Frontier Airlines said earlier this year that passenger numbers on the Seattle flight dropped sharply in the fall, prompting the carrier to end service in April.
