Alaska Airlines announced plans to continue its expansion from the West Coast with new nonstop service between San Diego and Baltimore/Washington International Thurgood Marshall Airport beginning March 15, 2017.
“Our San Diego customers will soon enjoy nonstop flights to this historic seaport city, as well as easy access to the nation’s capital nearby,” said John Kirby, Alaska Airlines’ vice president of capacity planning.
Baltimore represents the fourth East Coast destination added by Alaska from its Southern California focus city of San Diego since 2012. Other recently added destinations include Boston, Orlando and Newark, New Jersey, which begins service Monday.
Alaska currently serves Baltimore from two other West Coast cities: Seattle and Los Angeles.
Alaska will serve the route with fuel-efficient Boeing 737 aircraft.
