Alaska Airlines reaffirms its commitment to the West Coast with new, nonstop service from the Pacific Northwest and the state of Alaska in the north, and from San Francisco, Los Angeles and San Diego in the south.

Starting in early January, passengers will be able to travel eight new routes, which will appeal to both leisure travelers and those flying for business.

The new scheduled service will link these destinations:

  • Spokane to Los Angeles (two daily departures) 
  • Spokane to San Francisco (two daily departures) 
  • Redmond / Bend, Oregon to Los Angeles
  • Redmond / Bend, Oregon to San Diego
  • Redmond / Bend, Oregon to San Francisco
  • Boise to Los Angeles (two daily departures) 
  • Missoula, Montana to Los Angeles
  • Anchorage to San Francisco

“We’re excited to offer even more nonstops between vibrant Pacific Northwest communities and our growing hubs in California,” said Brett Catlin, Alaska Airlines managing director of capacity planning and alliances. “Whether it’s travel for a weekend getaway to Missoula or a day trip to San Francisco, we’re proud to offer nearly 600 daily flights between West Coast cities.”

Alaska is also increasing the frequency of flights between certain markets.

Beginning Jan. 7, there will be an additional flight between San Francisco and Orange County, California, for a total of seven daily nonstops. On March 19, there will be the addition of a second daily flight between San Francisco and Chicago O’Hare. 

On Jan. 7, the flight between San Diego and Orlando, which is currently flown five times a week, becomes daily nonstop service. Starting March 19, second daily flights will begin between San Diego and Boise, and San Diego and Santa Rosa, California. Also on March 19, nonstop service between San Diego and San Jose, California, increases from four to six flights daily. On May 21, a second daily flight between San Diego and Boston goes into service.
