Alaska Airlines ramping up Florida service

Alaska Airlines is adding several new routes from the West Coast to Florida this winter. The Seattle-based airline is adding new nonstops service from Los Angeles to Tampa and Fort Myers. Additionally, Alaska is beginning new nonstops linking Fort Lauderdale with both San Diego and Portland, Oregon. All flights begin November 20.

Alaska Airlines already (pre-COVID) served Tampa and Fort Myers from its main base in Seattle and flew nonstop from Seattle, San Francisco and Los Angeles to Fort Lauderdale. Alaska also serves Seattle, Portland, San Francisco, Los Angeles and San Diego nonstop from Orlando.

This winter, Alaska will fly 14 different nonstop city pairs between Florida and West Coast, the most of any airline.

These routes could be seen as a response to jetBlue’s recent addition of flights from Fort Lauderdale and Orlando to the West Coast.
