San Diego International Airport (SAN) will add once daily, nonstop service to Santa Barbara, Calif. via Santa Barbara Airport (SBA) on Alaska Airlines beginning November 20, 2020. This is a new route and the 29th destination Alaska services from SAN.

“We are happy that Alaska Airlines is adding another route to the list of new service offerings at San Diego International Airport this year,” said Kimberly Becker, San Diego County Regional Airport Authority President and CEO. “We know there are many Santa Barbara residents and San Diegans that will be taking advantage of this intrastate route as both destinations have a lot to offer both the leisure and business traveler.”
