Alaska Airlines has added a daily nonstop service between San Diego and Spokane, Washington, it was announced Thursday.
The new service, which is scheduled to begin on Oct. 1, will be the only nonstop flight offered between the two cities, according to Alaska Airlines officials.
“We’re excited to add another connection between the Pacific Northwest and California with our new nonstop service between Spokane and San Diego, one of our key focus cities for growth,” said John Kirby, vice president of capacity planning at Alaska Airlines. “Alaska continues to emphasize our commitment to continued growth and investment throughout the West Coast.”
This year, Alaska will average 46 daily departures to 28 destinations from San Diego, according to the airline company.
“We’re thrilled Alaska Airlines will be adding nonstop service between San Diego and Spokane,” said Kim Becker, San Diego International Airport’s President/CEO. “The economic benefit from adding new routes to San Diego simply can’t be overstated. Bringing more people to the region means there are more people spending and investing money here. That helps create jobs and support jobs we already have. We value Alaska’s partnership.”
The route will be flown with Embraer 175 jets.
