This Major U.S. City Is Getting More Routes to Mexico

Alaska Airlines is expanding options to Mexico with several new routes from its Los Angeles hub for the peak winter season. 

Starting November 20, the airline will offer up to 3x weekly flights to La Paz, the capital of Mexico’s Baja California Sur. Alaska will also begin daily nonstop service to Monterrey later on Feb. 13, 2025, the country’s second-largest metro area after Mexico City.

Both routes will be served year-round with Alaska’s E175 aircraft, which has a 1-2 configuration in business class and 2-2 configuration in economy. Tickets for these new routes went on sale beginning July 3, on Alaska’s website

“We recently celebrated 35 years of service to Mexico and are proud to connect travelers with the rich culture and natural beauty of the country,” Alaska’s vice president of revenue management and network planning, Kristin Amrine, said in a statement. “We look forward to continuing to serve as the carrier of choice from the West Coast, especially as we prepare to start service to these popular destinations in Mexico.”

As the only airline to offer nonstop routes to these destinations from Los Angeles, the route additions prove Alaska’s “longstanding commitment and plans for growth in the region,” according to the carrier. Along with the new La Paz (LAP) and Monterrey (MTY) routes, the airline operates nonstop service to Cancun (CUN), Cabo San Lucas (SJD), Guadalajara (GDL),  Ixtapa-Zihuatenejo (ZIH), Loreto (LTO), Mazatlan (MZT), Puerto Vallarta (PVR), and Manzanillo (ZLO).

“Through LAX, this new route will offer access to new destinations on the West Coast, as we continue to increase international connectivity from Monterrey to meet both business and leisure travel demand,” CEO of Grupo Aeroportuario del Centro Norte Ricardo Dueñas said in the release.

Beyond Mexico, Alaska serves many other Central American destinations from its connecting hub in Los Angeles, including nonstop flights to Belize and Guatemala in recent years.
