Alaska Airlines Adds Three “Sun and Fun” Destinations from Anchorage

Alaska Airlines continues to expand at one of its key hubs in Anchorage with new nonstop service to three “sun and fun” destinations – Denver, Las Vegas, San Francisco – and the expansion of year-round service to a popular fourth destination, Phoenix.

This next summer, Alaska will fly nonstop flights to eight destinations from Anchorage: Chicago (O’Hare), Denver, Las Vegas, Los Angeles, San Francisco, Seattle, Phoenix, and Portland. Four of the destinations are also Alaska hubs which offer travelers additional opportunities for connections to other cities served by Alaska.

The newly announced routes will connect Anchorage to more places that offer warm sunshine, big city vibes and the sky’s the limit on what to do. New service to Las Vegas, Denver and San Francisco begins this summer; the Las Vegas flight will be offered year-round with seasonal flights to Denver and San Francisco. The current seasonal flight between Anchorage and Phoenix will now fly year-round.

The Anchorage-San Francisco flight – first announced in August 2019 – was scheduled to start in April 2020, but it was delayed due to the pandemic.

“The demand for leisure travel in 2021 is beginning to return as our guests look ahead, and we’re offering even more nonstops to take Alaskans to the places they want to go,” said Marilyn Romano, Alaska Airlines’ regional vice president.
