Alaska Airlines adds new nonstop flight between Seattle and Toronto   

Toronto, Ontario, Canada, CN Tower Cityscape.

It’s the first time we’ll connect our home airport to Canada’s largest city 

Alaska Airlines is announcing new service this spring to a dynamic Canadian destination our guests are going to love: We’ll begin daily nonstops between Seattle and Toronto starting on May 16, 2024, with convenient departure and arrival times. Tickets are available for purchase now at

Toronto is the largest city in Canada along the shores of Lake Ontario. It’s a brand-new destination for us from our home airport in Seattle. For visitors, the possibilities are endless in Toronto with its bustling downtown and walkable neighborhoods, stunning parks, rich history and diverse restaurants and entertainment. 

“We’re always focused on better connecting the Pacific Northwest with additional nonstops in our network,” said Kirsten Amrine, vice president of revenue management and network planning for Alaska Airlines. “There’s a strong desire by our guests for a Seattle-Toronto flight that connects a pair of exciting cities not only for leisure travel but also links key business centers between the U.S. and Canada.”

Toronto will be the sixth Canadian city we fly to, in addition to Calgary, Edmonton, Kelowna, Vancouver and Victoria. 

This isn’t the first time we’ve flown to eastern Canada from the West Coast. In the early 90’s, we flew nonstop service between Los Angeles and Toronto. 

In December, we announced our 30th global airline partnership with Porter Airlines, a growing Canadian carrier that’s based in Toronto. Alaska and Porter look to strengthen our partnership throughout 2024. Porter began new flights from Los Angeles to Toronto on Jan. 16, and will start new service between San Francisco and Toronto on Jan. 25. Those flights, along with flights connecting on Alaska across our West Coast network, can be purchased at
