Alaska Airlines Moves Forward on California - Mexico Flights

los cabosAlaska Airlines has submitted its application to begin two nonstop services from Orange County, California, to Los Cabos and Puerto Vallarta, Mexico.

The planned year-round service will operate thrice-weekly between Orange County and Puerto Vallarta and four-times weekly between Orange County and Los Cabos.

The new flights between Orange County and Mexico will be operated with fuel-efficient, next generation Boeing 737 aircraft. Flight times and introductory fares will be available on once the DOT approves Alaska Airlines' request for service, which typically takes around four weeks.

Alaska Airlines began flying to Puerto Vallarta and Los Cabos more than 25 years ago. Today, the carrier operates 36 weekly peak-season flights to Puerto Vallarta and 50 weekly peak-season flights to Los Cabos.
