INDIANAPOLIS -

For the second time this week, Indianapolis International Airport is announcing an additional nonstop flight. Alaska Airlines says it will offer daily service to San Francisco International Airport starting in September. Frontier Airlines added a Las Vegas nonstop earlier this week. In August, Alaska Airlines announced its new presence in Indy with nonstop service to Seattle-Tacoma International Airport. At the time, Indy Airport Executive Director Mario Rodriguez told Inside INdiana Business the carrier "is not starting service here for just one destination."

United Airlines currently flies nonstop to San Francisco. The Alaska Airlines flights to the California destination will be served by Virgin American Airbus planes, which were added when Alaska Airlines acquired Virgin America.

Rodriguez says "adding this flight -- at this time -- sends a clear message about the value Alaska Airlines sees in Indianapolis. First Seattle, a destination that has been long awaited, and now an additional investment in a nonstop daily flight to another crucial market that connects not only regions but continents. That's a statement we're taking full note of as we welcome Alaska Airlines to the city." Rodriguez says San Francisco is a sought-after destination for Indiana's technology and business communities as well as for leisure travelers.

Airport officials say IND serves an average of 143 flights per day and has a total of 46 nonstop destinations.
