Alaska Airlines is adding service to six new destinations from San Diego International Airport, including daily flights to Albuquerque, New Mexico; Austin, Texas; Kansas City, Missouri; Minneapolis/St. Paul; Omaha, Nebraska; and St. Louis, Missouri, the carrier said.
By late August, Alaska will fly 40 daily departures to 28 destinations from San Diego, including the most nonstop flights to Mexico and Hawaii.
The new flights build on previously announced routes, which include daily nonstop flights between San Diego and Baltimore, three-times-daily service between San Diego and Sacramento, and daily service between San Diego and Mexico City. Flight schedules for Mexico City will be announced in the coming months, pending government approval.
New routes will be served by 76-seat Embraer E175 jets, which feature 12 seats in first class, 12 seats in premium class and 52 seats in the main cabin.
