Alaska Airlines Launches Mexico City Flights

By: Caribbean Journal Staff - August 28, 2017

Alaska Airlines has launched new flights to Mexico City, the carrier announced.

That means Alaska is now flying to Mexico’s capital out of two hubs: San Francisco and Los Angeles.

This fall, Alaska Airlines will also be launching flights from San Diego to Mexico City.

It’s the latest new route for the company, which has added 29 new destinations in 2017 alone.

“With nearly three decades of service to Mexico, we’re thrilled to return to the capital city of Mexico and continue to provide the most flights from California to Mexico of any U.S.-based carrier,” said Annabel Chang, vice president – Bay Area for Alaska Airlines. “Service into Mexico City is key to our strategy to becoming the go-to airline for travelers on the West Coast. We look forward to welcoming our guests onboard and becoming the only airline to offer service to Mexico City from the three largest cities in California.”

The year round nonstop service will operate once daily between San Francisco and Mexico City and twice daily between Mexico City and Los Angeles.

The San Diego flights, which will operate once daily, will launch Nov. 6.
