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” said an Alaska Airlines release.
“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,” said Brett Catlin, vice president of network and alliances at Alaska Airlines.
“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.”
