There’s a lot to love about Mexico. The people, the beaches, the culture, the food! With so much of Mexico to see and experience, Alaska Airlines is announcing new service to connect our guests throughout the Bay Area to three new nonstop destinations south of the border from San Francisco International Airport – Loreto, Mazatlán and Ixtapa/Zihuatanejo. 

Alaska Airlines announces new nonstop flights between San Francisco and three sunny destinations in Mexico.

Alaska has more nonstop flights to Mexico from the West Coast than any other U.S. carrier. This winter, we’ll have up to 27 departures a day: 20 from California and seven from the Pacific Northwest.

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. The nonstops also make it easier to visit family and friends in the Bay Area and Mexico. Tickets to all the destinations we serve in Mexico are now on sale with up to 30% off select, one-way fares. Blackout dates and day-of-week restrictions apply. For full terms and conditions, please visit alaskaair.com.

“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 Angelesand San Diego to a range of destinations in Mexico and across Latin America.”

In addition to the new nonstop seasonal service from San Francisco to Loreto, Mazatlán and Ixtapa/Zihuatanejo, Alaska also has nonstop flights from San Francisco to Cancún, Los Cabos and Puerto Vallarta. From San Jose in the Bay Area, we fly nonstop to Guadalajara, Los Cabos and Puerto Vallarta.
