We’re getting bigger in Texas. Howdy, El Paso!

We’re galloping to the West Texas city of El Paso.

Starting today, Feb. 19, we have daily nonstop flights between Seattle and El Paso, and between El Paso and San Diego.

El Paso is a new destination for Alaska Airlines. It’s our 90th nonstop destination from Seattle, our largest hub. From San Diego, El Paso is our 31st nonstop destination and our third nonstop destination in Texas, joining Austin and Dallas Love Field.

With the most nonstops from the West Coast, we’re proud to add another popular city to where we fly.

“We’ve considered adding El Paso as a new destination for some time,” said Nicholas Haan, Alaska Airlines director of network planning. “We’re very pleased to be able to connect two of our West Coast gateway cities – Seattle and San Diego – to such a vibrant Texas city, and further share our low fares and great customer service we’re known for.”

El Paso has a rich, multicultural history, beautiful landscapes, great food and, increasingly, a strategically located base for manufacturing and innovation.

Alaska is the only airline providing nonstop flights between Seattle and El Paso. The easier, more convenient 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 is currently the largest underserved market from Seattle within the range of our Embraer 175 jets. The aircraft is a perfect fit for this route, which will be flown by Horizon Air. It has three cabin classes – including an exceptional first class, and premium class with complimentary cocktails, wine and beer plus extra legroom.

Here’s look at the flight schedule:
