Less than a year after its launch, Alaska Airlines, the only U.S. airline to provide a pay-by-month flight subscription service, is expanding its well-liked programme to Salt Lake City.

Subscribers to Flight Pass will now be able to fly between Salt Lake City and San Francisco or San Diego in addition to 18 other routes throughout California and a few cities in Nevada and Arizona.
