On Thursday (August 12, 2021), Alaska Airlines announced the addition of new nonstop seasonal service from San Francisco (SFO) to Loreto, Mazatlán and Ixtapa/Zihuatanejo for the winter 2021/22 season. The additional service to Mexico complements existing flights between SFO and Cancún, Los Cabos and Puerta Vallarta, as well as service from San Jose to Guadalajara, Los Cabos and Puerto Vallarta. Alaska Airlines offers more nonstop flights to Mexico from the West Coast than any other U.S. carrier. This winter, the airline will offer 27 daily departures to Mexico with 20 from California and seven from the Pacific Northwest.


To celebrate the launch of the new routes, tickets are now on sale for destinations in Mexico with up to 30 percent off select, one-way fares. To qualify for the introductory fares, tickets must be purchased by August 14, 2021 for travel from September 7, 2021 to February 9, 2022.


In Thursday’s announcement, Alaska Airlines’ Vice President of Network and Alliances, Brett Catlin, said,


“Our guests are eager to relax, disconnect and have fun, and the places we fly to in Mexico are ideal locations to do that. With a total of seven nonstop destinations from the Bay Area this winter, including options from San Francisco and San Jose, tropical paradise is just a few hours away. Plus, we offer convenient nonstops from Los Angeles and San Diego to a range of destinations in Mexico and across Latin America.”
