Sunny San Diego to Central Florida Nonstop

Alaska Airlines continues their expansion at San Diego’s International Airport (SAN) with a new non-stop flight to the theme park capital of the sunshine state.  The new flight between San Diego (SAN) and Orlando International Airport (MCO) will be the first non-stop in this popular market.

The new San Diego flight is timed allowing for easy connections onward to Honolulu as well as the Pacific Northwest.   The new Orlando service will begin on October 11, 2012, with five flights a week using Boeing 737-800 equipment seating 16 in First Class and 141 in Economy.

Joe Sprague, Alaska Airlines’ Vice President of Marketing, said, “We’re thrilled to announce our fourth new market in San Diego in just four months.”  Sprague continued, “Our customers will not only enjoy nonstop access to one of the ‘Happiest Places on Earth,’ but they’ll also benefit from convenient connections to Honolulu and the Pacific Northwest.”

Alaska Airlines and its sister carrier Horizon is growing it’s presence in San Diego with new nonstops to Fresno/Yosemite, Monterey and Santa Rosa/Sonoma County starting on June 4 and 5 respectively.

Thella F. Bowens, President and CEO of the San Diego County Regional Airport Authority, said, “Just after the exciting announcement of three intra-California routes, Alaska Airlines has done it again — Orlando was the largest market without nonstop service to San Diego, and today’s news is a welcome bridge between two beloved, sunny cities.”
