Alaska Airlines adds 12 new destinations in 2020 from LAX

New services from Los Angeles includes flights to Florida, Hawaii, Montana and Oregon


On Thursday, Alaska Airlines announced seven new routes from Los Angeles International Airport (LAX) to further connect its guests between Southern California and key markets around the country, including the first nonstop service from the West Coast to Fort Myers/Naples, Fla. (RSW) from both LAX and Seattle.

The added service builds on five recent additional routes that link LAX to cities across the West for a total of 12 new routes this year. Alaska will fly to 35 nonstop destinations from LAX this winter with a strong platform for future growth. 


The new routes will connect Alaska's guests in Southern California to destinations in Florida (Fort Myers and Tampa); Hawaii (Kona and Lihue); Montana (Bozeman) and Oregon (Eugene and Medford). Service starts on Oct. 1 for the Oregon markets, and between Nov. 20 and December 18 for the remaining destinations.

"LAX is one of Alaska's important hub markets and continues to offer valuable opportunities for selective expansion," said Brett Catlin, Alaska Airlines managing director of capacity planning and alliances. "The addition of these 12 new routes from LAX along with our upcoming membership in the oneworld alliance sets the stage for future growth."

Alaska will also start new service in November from additional West Coast airports: Seattle-Fort Myers; Portland-Fort Lauderdale; and San Diego-Fort Lauderdale. The added service to Fort Lauderdale complements Alaska's existing nonstop service to Seattle, San Francisco and Los Angeles. Alaska will operate 14 routes between the West Coast and Florida this coming winter.
