Alaska Airlines will launch daily seasonal service between Seattle and Cancún on November 6, pending approval by Mexico’s Direccion General de Aeronautica Civil (DGAC).
Customers can now book travel on Alaska Airlines’ Seattle-Cancún round-trips, which will operate daily through April 27.
Alaska Airlines is offering introductory $199 one-way fares on Seattle-Cancún tickets. Introductory-fare tickets must be purchased by May 15, for travel between November 6, 2014 and February 10, 2015.
The flights are now available for purchase at www.alaskaair.com or by calling 1-800-ALASKAAIR (1-800-252-7522 or TTY/TDD line 1-800-392-0228).
Alaska Airlines’ Seattle-Cancún schedule calls for its flight to depart Seattle-Tacoma International Airport (IATA code SEA) at 8:10 a.m. daily from November 6 and arrive at Cancún International Airport (CUN) at 3:55 p.m. local time.
In the other direction, Alaska Airlines’ flight will leave CUN at 4:55 p.m. daily from November 6 and reach SEA at 9:40 p.m. local time.
Between March 8 and April 4, however, Alaska Airlines’ flights will arrive at and depart from Cancún one hour earlier due to daylight saving time being in effect.
Including the new Seattle-Cancún flight, Alaska Airlines will offer 279 peak-day departures to 79 destinations from Seattle this winter, more than any other carrier.
This fall, Alaska Airlines will operate nearly four times as many daily flights out of Seattle than any other airline, according to the carrier.
Assuming its route application is approved by the Mexican DGAC, Alaska Airlines will operate its Seattle-Cancún route with Boeing 737NG aircraft.
A subsidiary of Alaska Air Group, Alaska Airlines and the partner regional airlines which operate on its network (including its sister regional airline Horizon Air) serve a network of nearly 100 cities in Alaska, the Lower 48 U.S. states, Hawaii, Canada and Mexico.
