alaska-airlines-status-match-logoDecember has been a busy month for Alaska Airlines without a doubt:

3 new flights on Alaska out of SFO

Today Alaska announced new route expansions from its newly acquired SFO hub. Tickets will go on sale today.

  • Starting June 15, 2017 three daily nonstop flights between SFO and Orange County with 4th flight adding on July 18. Alaska currently operates three daily nonstop flights between San Jose (SJC) airport and Orange County (SNA). The new flights from SFO will definitely increase its presence between the Bay Area and Southern California. Maybe the trip to Disneyland will become cheaper in the near future?

  • Starting July 18th twice daily nonstop flights between SFO to Minneapolis (MSP), a major Delta hub (Yep Alaska is going after you Delta!).
  • Starting June 14th one daily nonstop between SFO to Orlando (MCO), a route that Virgin used to operate. I am most excited about this because I have a trip planned for Orlando next December and now I don’t have to fly United, the only other nonstop option currently available between SFO and Orlando.

Will you be able to benefit from these new routes out of SFO?
