“This is great news for our city,” said San Diego Mayor Kevin Faulconer. “By providing nonstop service from San Diego to Mexico City, we are creating more opportunities to promote our shared interests, attract foreign investment and increase tourism. This new direct flight is another exciting step forward that will strengthen ties with our neighbors in Mexico.”

 

 

The year-round, nonstop service marks the ninth destination Alaska serves to Mexico. Other destinations with service from California include Cancun, Ixtapa/Zihuantanejo, Loreto, Los Cabos, Manzanillo, Mazatlán, Puerto Vallarta and Guadalajara. Alaska began flying to Mexico in 1988.
