Alaska Launches El Paso Service From Seattle and San Diego
Alaska Airlines has launched daily nonstop service between Seattle-Tacoma International Airport and El Paso International Airport, along with daily nonstop service between El Paso and San Diego International Airport. El Paso is a new destination for Alaska and becomes the 90th nonstop destination served from the airline's largest hub in Seattle. El Paso also becomes the 31st nonstop destination served from San Diego. The routes will be flown by sister carrier Horizon Air, using Embraer 175 jets. They will have three cabin classes, including first class and premium class. Alaska is the only airline providing nonstop flights between Seattle and El Paso. The connection between the cities will help improve the travel time for employees who commute between western Washington and west Texas – two regions with significant industry and business ties. El Paso becomes the third nonstop destination from San Diego to Texas that is served by Alaska, joining Austin and Dallas Love Field.
