Alaska Airlines recently announced that starting in 2020, the carrier will serve the San Luis Obispo County Regional Airport from both Portland and San Diego.
The San Diego flights will launch January 7, 2020, and the Portland flights will begin June 18, 2020. Alaska will operate once daily nonstop service on both routes onboard Horizon Air E175 aircraft. The new destination offers travel enthusiasts from Southern California and the Pacific Northwest easier connectivity to California’s fastest-growing wine and recreation region.
“We are excited to add nonstop service to San Diego and Portland, Oregon, 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 on-board West Coast-inspired food and beverage menu, Alaska guests can look forward to experiencing our award-winning service.”

San Luis Obispo, well-known for its wine and food 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. Alaska has a long-standing partnership with Broken Earth Winery, based in nearby Paso Robles, California, and currently serves noteworthy wine blends on all Main Cabin flights.
