“Since March, our bookings for leisure travel have exceeded what they were before the pandemic,” said Brett Catlin, vice president of network and alliances at Alaska Airlines, in a release. “For many of our guests, there’s an increased confidence that comes after being vaccinated. They were cooped up for well over a year – now they’re ready to relax, enjoy and explore. With these new routes, we can whisk them away to destinations that have a warm sparkle in the wintertime.”
Tickets for all flights are available for purchase now on alaskaair.com.
Alaska said it remains committed to “next level care“ for its guests and employees. The airline continues to enforce the federally mandated mask policy, even for those who are fully vaccinated.
