Alaska Airlines adds new routes to Mexico City

alaskaair b737 8Alaska Airlines today launched service to Mexico City's Benito Juarez International Airport from two major California hubs: San Francisco International Airport and Los Angeles International Airport. Later this fall, Alaska Airlines will also add another service to Mexico City.

The new service of the carrier is from San Diego International Airport to Mexico City, becoming the only airline to serve Mexico City from all three California gateways.

The launch to Mexico City kicks off the most significant network expansion in Alaska Air Group's 85-year history with 29 new routes launching through the end of 2017.

The year-round nonstop service will operate once daily between Mexico City and San Francisco, twice daily between Mexico City and Los Angeles and once daily between Mexico City and San Diego (starting November 6). The new service is the ninth destination Alaska serves to Mexico from California, including Cancun, Ixtapa/Zihuatanejo, Loreto, Los Cabos, Manzanillo, Mazatlán, Puerto Vallarta and Guadalajara. Alaska began flying to Mexico in 1988 and today operates over 100 flights a week—more than any other U.S. carrier from California. Alaska previously served Mexico City from 2005 to 2015.
