Alaska Airlines flying from Orange County to Puerto Vallarta, Mexico

Alaska Airlines said it has begun nonstop service from Orange County, California, to Puerto Vallarta, Mexico.

The flights are year-round and will operate three times a week.

“Alaska Airlines has long been the leading carrier from the LA Basin to popular resort areas in Western Mexico,” said John Kirby, vice president of capacity planning for Alaska Airlines.

Alaska Airlines began flying to Mexico more than 25 years ago. Today, the carrier operates 35 weekly peak-season flights to Puerto Vallarta–more than any other carrier from California. The airline also started service from Orange County to Los Cabos this week.
