Alaska Airlines Begins Nonstop Flights to Missoula, Montana from San Diego International Airport

Thursday, March 18, 2021

Alaska Airlines launched its first nonstop flight between Missoula, Mont. via Missoula International Airport (MSO) and San Diego International Airport (SAN) today. This is the first time SAN will have daily, nonstop service to Missoula.

“From the vast blue ocean of San Diego to the big blue sky of Missoula, this service provides options for everyone to get out and explore the great outdoors,” said Kimberly Becker, San Diego County Regional Airport Authority President and CEO. “In a time when people are looking to vacation in a responsible way, access to places like Western Montana and Southern California are expected to be popular. We welcome this new service and thank Alaska Airlines for adding another destination to their nonstop network from SAN.”    

Located in the Northern Rockies of Montana, Missoula provides easy access to seven wilderness areas and countless outdoor activities including skiing and snowboarding, snowshoeing, fishing, kayaking, rafting, horseback riding, hiking, and more. Alaska Airlines will also offer seasonal nonstop service to two other Montana cities, Kalispell and Bozeman beginning May 20. For available flight days and times, please visit     

SAN has achieved Airports Council International’s (ACI) Airport Health Accreditation for its “Let’s Go Safely” program which prioritizes the health and safety of passengers, employees, and the community through several modifications and improvements at the airport. Health and safety modifications that have been implemented throughout the terminals, Rental Car Center, Parking Plaza, and Airport Authority administration building include increased cleaning of high touch points, electrostatic spraying, signage on preventive health measures, floor decals, and seat separation signage to queue six-foot social distance, hand sanitizer stations, Plexiglas sneeze guards in certain public spaces, and face masks are required on all airport property.
