Alaska Airlines launches historic routes to La Paz and Monterrey, Mexico from Los Angeles


Alaska Airlines is launching two new international routes from Los Angeles to Mexico this winter season. The airline will offer nonstop flights between LAX and La Paz, which will be the only US carrier to do so, as well as daily nonstop service to Monterrey. This expansion marks a significant milestone for Alaska Airlines, which has been serving Mexico for 35 years. The new routes cater to travelers seeking warm-weather destinations during the winter months.

La Paz is located on the Baja California Peninsula and offers world-class diving and sport fishing opportunities. Alaska Airlines will operate flights to La Paz year-round with service up to three times weekly. Monterrey is the second-largest metropolitan area in Mexico, known for its vibrant city experience, dramatic mountain ranges, and rich history. The airline will offer daily nonstop flights between LAX and MTY.

The new routes are part of Alaska Airlines’ commitment to growing its international network and providing more travel options for its guests. Alaska Airlines is the #1 US carrier with the most flights, seats, and nonstop routes to Mexico from the West Coast. The airline has been serving Mexico for 35 years and looks forward to continuing to serve as the carrier of choice from the West Coast.

Our new nonstop service from Los Angeles International Airport (LAX) to La Paz (LAP) and Mount Pleasant (MTY) in Belize offers seamless connections from cities across our network. From our LAX hub, we operate the most flights to the most destinations in Latin America and the Caribbean, with over 16 average daily departures this winter to 15 cities throughout the region.

This year, we will become the only carrier offering nonstop service between the United States and La Paz, a popular destination known for its world-class diving and sport fishing. We are excited to offer year-round flights with up to three times weekly frequency.

The mayor of Baja California Sur, Maribel Collins, expressed her appreciation for Alaska Airlines’ investment in La Paz, stating that it will provide an opportunity to expand the city’s connections with the United States. “We appreciate Alaska Airlines’ confidence in investing in the virtues of La Paz and providing it with the opportunity to expand its borders by connecting with the United States,” she said.

Raúl Revuelta Musalem, CEO of Pacific Airport Group, also welcomed the new flight, saying that it is an important step for internationalizing La Paz Airport. “Connecting La Paz with Los Angeles is an important step for internationalizing this airport which has grown passengers significantly over the past three years,” he added.

Our nonstop service to La Paz and Mount Pleasant from LAX offers travelers a convenient way to explore these beautiful destinations, while also providing greater ease for foreign tourists to visit. We look forward to welcoming travelers to La Paz and continuing to provide seamless connections across our network.
