Alaska Airlines has recently initiated nonstop flights from Tucson International Airport (TUS) to Orange County’s John Wayne Airport (SNA), offering a new direct route that connects travelers to some of California’s most renowned destinations. This service is especially convenient for those planning to explore California’s picturesque coastline, renowned beaches, and popular attractions such as Disneyland, California Adventure, and Knott’s Berry Farm.
For Californians traveling in the opposite direction, this flight provides an opportunity to experience the unique beauty of the Sonoran Desert. Arizona is known for having one of the highest amounts of sunshine in the United States, making it an ideal destination for outdoor activities during the winter. Visitors can enjoy the stunning mountain ranges, which offer both scenic views and snow skiing, along with a distinctive desert landscape.
Seasonal Flight Service Offered Through Mid-April 2024
The flight service is scheduled to be available until April 15, 2024. For more information on the new flight service and to book tickets, interested individuals can visit Alaska Airlines’ official website. Additionally, further details about John Wayne Airport, including its ranking among the top large airports in the country, can be found on its website.
“We’re always looking at new routes to connect our guests, and we see a lot of potential with our new nonstop between sunny Orange County and sunny Tucson,” said Kirsten Amrine, vice president of revenue management and network planning at Alaska Airlines. “There’s plenty to enjoy in Southern California and the desert of Arizona, especially when we begin this new flight in the winter as the weather is turning nearly everywhere else.”
“This new route is the result of our team connecting the dots to demonstrate demand to our airline partners and accomplishing a top priority,” said Tucson Airport Authority President and CEO Danette Bewley. “Southern Arizonans now have a more convenient way to reach the top attractions around Los Angeles, and Southern Californians, who are our top source of visitors to Tucson, have a convenient way to skip the seven-hour drive.”
