Alaska Airlines to add new nonstop services from Anchorage to New York City and San Diego

Alaska Airlines is connecting Anchorage to both New York City and San Diego with seasonal nonstop service next summer. Daily flights to New York JFK begin June 13, 2024, and weekly flights to San Diego start May 18, 2024. 

The new nonstop between the Big Apple and Anchorage will be unique to Alaska Airlines and will open up the last frontier to New Yorkers and open up the whole region. At a distance of some 3,386 miles, it will be the longest flight in Alaska's network and is scheduled to be operated by Boeing 737 MAX 8 jet.  

We’re eager to welcome guests to our great state from the city that never sleeps to the land of the midnight sun on Alaska’s new nonstop flight,” said Jillian Simpson, president and CEO of the Alaska Travel Industry Association (ATIA). “Summer is an incredible time to visit Alaska with our warm, long days. There’s so much to do in Anchorage and in the smaller towns nearby, mapping out your itinerary might be the toughest thing you do before heading west.”
