  • 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!

San Diego Trip Deal: $549 round-trip from SAN to Hong Kong on Alaska, Hainan

Alaska Airlines and Hainan Airlines are putting flights to Hong Kong on sale from San Diego for travel with dates from January through April, with flights starting at $549 after taxes.

Hong Kong is an amazing jumping off point to the rest of Asia, and a great city to explore (and remote work from!).

To find this deal, use Google Flights and search for flights between SAN and HKG.
