Alaska Airlines Announces New Flight Service from San Luis Obispo


Alaska Airlines recently announced it will be launching two new daily nonstop routes between San Luis Obispo County Regional Airport and San Diego International Airport on Jan. 7, and San Luis Obispo Regional Airport and Portland International Airport on June 18.

“These new Alaska Airlines flights are the successful outcome of years of planning and coordination,” said Kevin Bumen, A.A.E., San Luis Obispo’s airport director. “With the help of our community partners, the county and the airport are excited to bring these new opportunities to our travelers, and to provide deeper connections into the Alaska Airlines network.”

Additionally, the new routes further amplify Alaska’s commitment to the California market, building on recently announced service additions linking San Francisco, Los Angeles, and San Diego to destinations including Anchorage, Spokane and Redmond/Bend.

The new destination will offer travel enthusiasts from Southern California and the Pacific Northwest easier connectivity to California’s fastest-growing wine and recreation region. San Luis Obispo, well-known for its wine and foodie scene, is a key new market for the airline and underscores Alaska’s commitment to providing guests with bright flavors inspired by the West Coast.

“We are excited to add nonstop service to San Diego and Portland from San Luis Obispo, furthering our commitment to California’s Central Coast,” said Brett Catlin, Alaska Airlines’ managing director of capacity planning and alliances.

"Whether visiting nearby Paso Robles to experience the renowned food and wine scene, cycling through hills and vistas, or enjoying our onboard West Coast-inspired food and beverage menu, Alaska guests can look forward to experiencing our award-winning service."

Tickets are now available for purchase.
