Alaska Airlines launched daily nonstop service today between Seattle-Tacoma International Airport and El Paso International Airport, along with daily nonstop service between El Paso and San Diego International Airport.
El Paso is a new destination for Alaska, and becomes the 90th nonstop destination served from the airline’s largest hub in Seattle. El Pasoalso becomes the 31st nonstop destination served from San Diego. Alaska has the most nonstops from the West Coast, including the most flights to Hawaii.
Alaska is the only airline providing nonstop flights between Seattle and El Paso. The easier, more convenient connection between the cities will help improve the travel time for employees who commute between Western Washington and West Texas – two regions with significant industry and business ties.
El Paso is currently the largest underserved market from Seattle within the range of our Embraer 175 jets. The aircraft is a perfect fit for this route, which will be flown by Horizon Air. It has three cabin classes – including an exceptional first class, and premium class with complimentary cocktails, wine and beer plus extra legroom.
From San Diego, El Paso becomes the third nonstop destination to Texas that’s served by Alaska, joining Austin and Dallas Love Field.
