Alaska Airlines to Begin Service from El Paso to San Diego, Seattle in 2019

On Thursday, the City of El Paso and Alaska Airlines announced new, daily non-stop flights from El Paso International Airport to Seattle and San Diego beginning February 19, 2019.

“Alaska Airlines is excited to add El Paso to our growing list of destinations, and connect it to two of our largest West Coast gateways – Seattle and San Diego,” said John Kirby, vice president of capacity planning at Alaska. “We believe the region’s travelers will love our low fares, industry leading customer service and loyalty program.”

The new flights to San Diego and Seattle will run daily with connections available to destinations nationwide, as well as international. Alaska will operate an Embraer 175 aircraft on the new routes.

Mayor Dee Margo said, “The addition of Alaska Airlines to El Paso is wonderful news and we share in the celebration with our traveling community. We welcome Alaska Airlines to El Paso and the additional connection to the west coast, as well as more options for travel for all El Pasoans.”

City Manager Tommy Gonzalez added that strengthening our region’s economy by growing the core business of air transportation is one the City’s strategic goals.

“Today’s announcements proves we are continuing to deliver results for our traveling public,” Gonzalez said, ”We continue to work on additional flights to demonstrate that El Paso continues to grow and prosper as an international airport. In the past four years we have announced 15 new flights and have added two new airlines.”

Alaska Airlines is the fifth-largest U.S. airline based on passenger traffic and is headquartered in Seattle, Washington. Alaska Air Group serves 115 destinations with 1,200 daily departures in the United States, Mexico, Canada and Costa Rica.
