Alaska Airlines has announced more flights from the West Coast of the United States for the Winter season. Specifically, this time, it is focusing on leisure travellers looking for a sunshine holiday in the winter season.
Just in time for the holidays, Alaska Airlines will add seasonal service between San Francisco, California and Cancun, Mexico on 16th December 2021 offering passengers in the Bay Area a convenient way to get away to eastern Mexico.
On the same day, the Seattle-based carrier will launch two new flights from Portland, Oregon to Tampa, Florida and New Orleans, Louisiana – the only nonstop flights from the Rose City to these two Southern destinations. These routes are also seasonal service, each with several flights a week.
Starting 19th November 2021, Alaska Airlines will connect Palm Springs, California with Austin, Texas. It will offer the only nonstop flight between the heart of the Coachella Valley and the Texas capital with flights 5-times-a-week. The announcement comes after American Airlines announced 14 new routes from the Texan city.
For the reading convenience, I am embedding the schedule of these newly announced flights:
Brett Carlin, Vice President of Network and Alliances, Alaska Airlines, said:
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. With these new routes, we can whisk them away to destinations that have a warm sparkle in the wintertime.
