Last week, Alaska/Virgin America announced 13 new Bay Area routes. In its quest to expand its California presence, this week Alaska Airlines announced 6 new non-stop San Diego routes:
- Albuquerque, New Mexico
- Austin, Texas
- Kansas City, Missouri
- Minneapolis/St. Paul, Minnesota
- Omaha, Nebraska
- St. Louis. Missouri
Alaska Airlines will also offer daily service between San Diego and Mexico City, Mexico in the coming months, pending government approval.
As a West Coaster who so far (mostly) loves Alaska and Virgin America, I am excited about these new routes, and hope there are more announcements to come soon!
