Alaska Airlines today begins nonstop service from Orange County, California, to Puerto Vallarta, Mexico. The flights are year-round and will operate three times a week.
To celebrate the new service, Alaska is offering introductory one-way fares of $129* for tickets purchased by Oct. 15, for travel through Feb. 9, 2016.
"Alaska Airlines has long been the leading carrier from the LA Basin to popular resort areas in Western Mexico,” said John Kirby, vice president of capacity planning for Alaska Airlines. "We are excited to offer new non-stop service from Orange County, California to Puerto Vallarta.”
Alaska Airlines began flying to Mexico more than 25 years ago. Today, the carrier operates 35 weekly peak-season flights to Puerto Vallarta—more than any other carrier from California. The airline also started service from Orange County to Los Cabos this week.
Alaska is operating the new flights with fuel-efficient, next generation Boeing 737 aircraft.
