Alaska Airlines, subsidiary of Alaska Air Group (ALK), announced Tuesday that it launched daily nonstop service today between Seattle-Tacoma International Airport and El Paso International Airport, along with daily nonstop service between El Paso and San Diego International Airport.

The non-stop flights to El Paso are set to begin on February 19, 2019. Alaska is the only airline providing nonstop flights between Seattle and El Paso. From San Diego, El Paso becomes the third nonstop destination to Texas that's served by Alaska, joining Austin and Dallas Love Field.

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.

El Paso is a new destination for Alaska, and becomes the 90th nonstop destination served from the airline's largest hub in Seattle. El Paso also becomes the 31st nonstop destination served from San Diego.
