San Diego International Airport (SAN) will add nonstop service to one new international destination and two U.S. cities on Alaska Airlines.
Alaska will offer flights from SAN to the following cities:
- Cancun, Mexico via Cancun International Airport (CUN) – four times weekly beginning November 20, 2020 through April 12, 2021.
- Fort Lauderdale, Fla. via Fort Lauderdale/Hollywood International Airport (FLL) – three times weekly beginning November 21.
- 'Missoula, Mont. via Missoula International Airport (MSO) – daily beginning March 11, 2021.
“The announcement of three new routes is welcome news for our region,” said Kimberly Becker, San Diego County Regional Airport Authority President and CEO. “Our team has been in discussions with Alaska about nonstop service to Cancun for a couple of years, so I’m happy our diligent efforts are paying off. The service to Fort Lauderdale and new route to Missoula are also welcome as they provide those regions with easy access to enjoy San Diego’s many offerings or the ability for San Diegans to escape to south Florida or explore the great outdoors of western Montana.”
The winter seasonal service to Cancun marks the first time SAN has had nonstop service to this popular destination in over a decade. This new route offering will be a convenient way for many of the region’s leisure travelers to get to their desired destination without having to connect or fly from regional hubs.
This is the first time Alaska will offer nonstop service from San Diego to Fort Lauderdale. Fort Lauderdale marks the second destination in Florida that Alaska Airlines serves from SAN. It also provides nonstop service to Orlando.
This will be the first time SAN will have nonstop service to Missoula, Montana.
Tickets are already on sale at alaskaair.com. As the second largest carrier operating from the airport, Alaska throughout the year will serve 27 cities from SAN with the addition of these three routes.
