Alaska Airlines to Connect West Coast to Beach Destinations

Alaska Airlines is now offering several new nonstop routes to make it easier to escape to places known for wintertime sun and fun:

  • Just in time for the holidays, we’ll begin weekly, seasonal service between San Francisco and Cancun on Dec. 16, offering our Bay Area guests a convenient way to get away to eastern Mexico.
  • We’ll launch two new flights from Portland on Dec. 16 to Tampa and New Orleans – the only nonstops from the Rose City to these two Southern destinations. These routes are also seasonal service, each with several flights a week.
  • On Nov. 19, we’ll say howdy to another new route connecting Palm Springs and Austin. It’s the only nonstop flight between the heart of the Coachella Valley and the Texas capital with flights five times a week.

“Since March, our bookings for leisure travel have exceeded what they were before the pandemic. For many of our guests, there’s an increased confidence that comes after being vaccinated. They were cooped up for well over a year – now they’re ready to relax, enjoy and explore,” said Brett Catlin, vice president of network and alliances at Alaska Airlines. “With these new routes, we can whisk them away to destinations that have a warm sparkle in the wintertime.”

Many of our guests are leisure travelers – heading to Hawaii for vacation, visiting family in Boston, maybe off to a soccer tournament with the kids in Los Angeles. They turn to us for low fares, great service and genuine hospitality. We offer West Coast-inspired fresh meals and beverages, hundreds of free TV shows and movies to watch on personal devices, upgraded satellite Wi-Fi on more of our aircraft and even free texting during flights.

With the addition of a new nonstop service to Belize from Los Angeles and Seattle this November, customers have access to 42 more nonstops now than they did before the pandemic.
