Alaska Airlines is celebrating summer with almost one million additional seats on flights compared to 2023.

If you’re a West Coast resident, you’re in luck. Alaska Airlines is increasing its flights to popular destinations like Cancun, Guadalajara, Los Cabos, Loreto, Manzanillo, Mazatlán, Puerto Vallarta, and Ixtapa/Zihuatanejo, surpassing any other US-based airline. Schedules at hubs such as Portland have increased by 16 percent, Seattle by 10 percent, San Diego by 23 percent, and Los Angeles by 33 percent, giving passengers more flexibility than ever before.

The increase in summer routes is in response to passenger feedback and demand.

“As best-in-class operators, our top priority is consistently delivering on our promise to guests to take them where they’re going safely and on time — all while showing them the care for which we’re known,” says Andrew Harrison, chief commercial officer at Alaska Airlines. “This summer, we’re prepared to do more flying and welcome more guests to experience not only a safe operation but also a premium experience. We’ve been hard at work on elevating all aspects of the travel journey for our guests from start to finish.”

Alaska is also making changes to improve the customer experience. Major hubs, including Anchorage, Los Angeles, Portland, and San Francisco, are receiving modernization with more seating in lounges, expanded menus, and upgrades to gates. The airline has also upgraded the options for hot meals for Premium and Main Cabin tickets on flights 1,100 miles or more.
