Alaska Airlines began flying to Mexico more than 25 years ago. Today, the carrier operates 35 weekly peak-season flights to Puerto Vallarta—more than any other carrier from California. The airline also started service from Orange County to Los Cabos this week.
Alaska is operating the new flights with fuel-efficient, next generation Boeing 737 aircraft. Customers can enjoy free entertainment on their own devices and power at every seat, as well as Northwest-inspired food and beverages, such as Beecher's Flagship cheese, and exclusively blended Canoe Ridge wine.
