The new service includes daily flights to Albuquerque, Austin, Kansas City, Minneapolis, Omaha and St. Louis.
The first new flights will start in late August, by which time Alaska will be offering 40 daily departures to 28 destinations from San Diego.
“Alaska Airlines has grown more than any other carrier in San Diego over the last five years, with the addition of 18 nonstop destinations and nearly twice as many departing seats,” said John Kirby, vice president of capacity planning at Alaska Airlines.
“We want to thank Airport Authority President and CEO Thella Bowens and her terrific team for their partnership,” he added. “Without Thella’s strong leadership and support over the years, our growth wouldn’t have been possible.”
A daily nonstop to Baltimore starts Wednesday, and three-times-daily service to Sacramento begins Thursday. Daily flights to Mexico City are scheduled to begin soon.
“We’re delighted to see Alaska Airlines continue to grow its presence here at SAN, giving travelers more options to explore and connect than ever before,” said Bowens.
