Alaska Airlines adds new flights from San Diego

March 21, 2017 by  

On March 15, Alaska Airlines announced it is adding six new nonstop flights from San Diego to cities around the country. The new destinations are part of the airline’s expansion up and down the West Coast.

The new destinations and starting dates of the service are:

– St. Louis, Missouri, on December 15
– Omaha, Nebraska, on August 27
– Minneapolis/St. Paul, Minnesota, on November 18
– Kansas City, Missouri, on December 15
– Austin, Texas, on August 27
– Albuquerque, New Mexico, on October 18

Adding these routes to its schedule means Alaska will depart from San Diego 40 times daily, to 28 cities.

The airline will use Embraer E175 jets on these routes. The aircraft, which will be flown by regional affiliates of Alaska Airlines, seat 76 passengers.

This announcement was made shortly after the airline said it was adding 13 new cities to the list of destinations it serves from San Francisco. Alaska Airlines became one of the largest carriers on the West Coast, following its December 2016 acquisition of Virgin America, which is based in San Francisco. At that time, it had hubs in Portland, Oregon and Seattle, Washington, and a significant number of gates at airports in San Diego, Los Angeles, and San Jose.

Companies like this can benefit by working with brochure printers, which can create attractive and easy-to-read schedules in the form of brochures for travelers to use.
