Alaska Airlines to Launch New Service Between Burbank and San Francisco
Alaska Airlines will introduce new service between Hollywood Burbank Airport and San Francisco International Airport. Starting December 14, 2023, the carrier will offer three peak daily flights on the route year-round.
On Thursday (July 20, 2023), Alaska Airlines announced the launch of new year-round service between Hollywood Burbank Airport (BUR) and San Francisco International Airport (SFO). From December 14, 2023, Alaska will offer three peak daily flights on the route.

As the only West Coast-based U.S. airline, Alaska has served California for over 40 years.
In Thursday’s route announcement, Alaska Airlines’ Regional Vice President – California, Neil Thwaites, said,
“As the only West Coast-based airline, we’re focused on growing a stronger network for our California based guests – within California and beyond. We’re excited to give people more ways to connect nonstop between Southern and Northern California with the launch of Burbank to SFO – a route we’ve never flown before. This network expansion is part of Alaska’s broader investment in enhancing the guest experience – from seamless check in, to automated bag drop, to renovated lounges and enhanced onboard offerings.” Also commenting on the new BUR-SFO route, Hollywood Burbank Airport’s Executive Director, Frank Miller, added,
“Alaska already connects guests from Burbank to destinations across California and along the Pacific Northwest. Thanks to Alaska Airlines, they'll soon be a short flight to Burbank where they can be at a popular amusement park minutes after they land or hop over to scenic San Francisco and go sightseeing along the coast.”
