Alaska Airlines announces three new seasonal routes from San Francisco to Mexico. Along with the new routes, Alaska will be putting these seats up for sale with as much as a 30% discount.
Alaska has more nonstop flights to Mexico from the West Coast than any other U.S. carrier. This winter, they’ll have up to 27 departures a day: 20 from California and seven from the Pacific Northwest. Alaska serves eight destinations across Mexico from their West Coast gateways: Cancún, Ixtapa/Zihuatanejo, Loreto, Los Cabos, Manzanillo, Mazatlán, Puerto Vallarta and Guadalajara. The airline has been flying to Mexico since 1988.

The new nonstops unlock convenient options when planning a warm getaway now that you know you’ll want later this year when grayness sets in.

“Our guests are eager to relax, disconnect and have fun, and the places we fly to in Mexico are ideal locations to do that,” said Brett Catlin, vice president of network and alliances at Alaska Airlines. “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.
Besides serving the Mexico market, Alaska flys to two destinations in Costa Rica. Alaska has new service to Belize beginning November 19, 2021. You can read about the new Belize service here.
New Alaska Lounge At San Francisco
Alaska Airlines guests will have the opportunity to relax in the new Alaska Lounge at San Francisco International Airport when it opens on August 31, 2021. The airline announces updated plans for Bay Area travelers. Under this new plan, Alaska will move into the former American Airlines Admirals Club space in Terminal 2, enabling the airline to open a new lounge just as guests start to return to travel.
When completed, this new lounge will be the second-largest of the Alaska Lounges at just under 10,000 sq. ft., behind Alaska’s flagship lounge in Seattle’s North Satellite Terminal. This space is also centrally located in Terminal 2, with easy access to additional dining and shopping options for guests. The Alaska Lounge at SFO joins seven other lounge locations in the Alaska Airlines portfolio, in Seattle; Portland, Oregon; Los Angeles; New York – JFK; and Anchorage.
The Lounge will include an espresso bar staffed by a trained barista, a full bar featuring complimentary local craft brews, West Coast wines and spirits and a wide selection of guest favorites like made-to-order pancakes, steel-cut oatmeal, fresh salads and hearty soups.
Alaska Airlines is one of the most strategic airlines when it comes to moving aircraft to focus on seasonal markets. Every winter, Alaska moves more of its fleet to destinations south of the border. Here is a chance for Bay Area residents to catch some sun this winter to Loreto, Mazatlan and Ixtapa/Zihuatanejo. Just in time for this new service will be the new San Francisco Alaska Lounge opening at the end of August.
