Alaska Airlines has announced the launch of nine new nonstop routes, broadening its reach to a variety of sought-after leisure destinations. For the first time, the airline will offer flights to the Bahamas and Guatemala, marking a significant expansion of its international services. Additionally, travelers looking to explore Mexico can now benefit from new services between Las Vegas and two Mexican cities.
This expansion comes at a time when travel demand continues to surge, with many flyers seeking both short and international getaways that are conveniently accessible from their home base. Whether it’s a brief journey along the West Coast or an adventure to an international destination, Alaska Airlines aims to meet the diverse preferences of its passengers.
LAX and Seattle to the Bahamas
Alaska Airlines has recently added new nonstop flights to Nassau, the capital of the Bahamas, expanding its service offerings from the West Coast. This new route marks the airline’s inaugural journey to the Caribbean nation. Travelers can now fly directly from two major West Coast hubs, Los Angeles and Seattle, to Nassau, facilitating easier access to the Bahamas.
Upon arrival in Nassau, passengers have the option to connect to the Bahamas’ picturesque out islands and further destinations, thanks to Alaska Airlines’ partnership with Bahamasair.
Latin America and Guatemala
Alaska Airlines is broadening its network in Latin America, introducing a new daily, year-round service that connects Los Angeles with Guatemala City, Guatemala. This addition marks a significant expansion into new international territories for the airline. Operating from its hub in Los Angeles, Alaska Airlines now boasts the highest number of flights to the most destinations within Latin America compared to any other carrier.
Las Vegas flights to Mexico and San Luis Obispo
Alaska is enhancing its service portfolio by establishing Las Vegas as a new gateway to Mexico, connecting travelers to two of the country’s most favored destinations: Cabo San Lucas and Puerto Vallarta. These flights are conveniently scheduled, departing from Las Vegas late in the morning, allowing passengers to arrive in Mexico by midday.
Palm Springs and New York City
Responding to the growing demand for direct flights to the East Coast from Southern California, Alaska Airlines is introducing a seasonal service that connects New York City with Palm Springs. This new route is designed to cater to travelers seeking to swap the bustling cityscape for the sunny desert landscape. The flight from New York is strategically scheduled for a morning departure, allowing passengers to reach Palm Springs around lunchtime, ready to enjoy the warm climate and local attractions.
