“Our guests in San Diego asked for more nonstops to the East Coast and we’re excited to add service to both the nation’s capital and to Florida’s vibrant Gulf Coast,” says Neil Thwaits, regional vice president of California for Alaska Airlines, in a prepared statement.

These new additions will bring the Seattle-based airline to 35 total nonstop destinations out of San Diego, adding to the over 330 peak day flights operated by Alaska Airlines in California. The airline also offers a special Flight Pass for California residents, a pay-by-month subscription service for flights throughout the state and to Las Vegas, Salt Lake City, and Phoenix.
