Richmond airline passengers could have an easier time to get to the Pacific Northwest and Alaska courtesy of a $1 million federal grant.

The grant will specifically help Richmond International Airport develop nonstop service to Seattle-Tacoma International Airport, the third-largest hub on the West Coast. It will also provide connectivity to other areas in the region.

The process for developing a route could take several years, according to an airport spokesperson. A similar grant award for service to Denver took about 2 1/2 years to complete.

“The airport plans to use this significant funding to help obtain nonstop service to Seattle, Washington, which will provide greater connectivity and access between the people and business of Richmond region and the Pacific Northwest as well as to beyond points in Alaska and western Canada,” said Perry J.
