From April 8 Alaska Airlines is expanding its Anchorage-Los Angeles non-stop service, a route the carrier has flown during the summer for several years.

The expanded Alaska Airlines service on the Anchorage-Los Angeles route will include a daily daytime flight most of the year and an additional nighttime flight during the summer.


Alaska Airlines’ all-Boeing 737 fleet includes 737-900s like this one photographed flying over Seattle, as well as 737-800s, 737-700s and half-freighter, half-passenger 737-400 Combis. The airline uses its 737-400 Combis for flights within Alaska. Alaska Airlines has also ordered 35 737-900ERs, which offer enough longer range than the basic 737-900 to allow transcontinental flights such as Seattle-Orlando; and has 20 Boeing 737 MAX 8 and 17 Boeing 737 MAX 9 jets on order.

 

“With expanded service between Anchorage and Los Angeles, including daytime flights and near year-round service, Alaska Airlines customers can enjoy the most convenient non-stop access between Southern California and Anchorage,” says Marilyn Romano, Alaska Airlines’ regional vice president of the state of Alaska.

To promote its extended Anchorage-Los Angeles schedule, Alaska Airlines is offering a special introductory one-way fare of $149 in either direction between Anchorage and Los Angeles.

Tickets must be purchased by October 25 and can be used for travel between April 8 and May 28, 2013. Visit www.alaskaair.com to purchase a ticket or call 1-800-ALASKAAIR (1-800-252-7522 or TTY/TDD line 1-800-392-0228).

The schedule for the airline’s new daytime Anchorage-Los Angeles flight will see its flight depart Ted Stevens Anchorage International Airport (ANC) at 11:30 a.m. daily and land at Los Angeles International Airport (LAX) at 5:45 p.m. local time.

In the other direction, the flight will leave LAX at 6.45 p.m. and arrive at ANC at 11:15 p.m. local time.

The Alaska Airlines daytime round-trip on the Anchorage-Los Angeles route will operate from April 8 to December 3 and the service will not operate in January and February 2014.
