Alaska Airlines announced the start of service to El Paso, Texas, from both Seattle and San Diego.

The daily non-stop service between Seattle-Tacoma International Airport and El Paso International Airport began on February 19, 2019. It is the only non-stop service between the two cities, the airline said.

Service from San Diego International Airport to El Paso also began on that date.

The airline is operating both flights using Embraer E175 jets with a three-class cabin. The aircraft feature 12 first-class recliner seats with 42” seat pitch in a 1-2 configuration, 12 premium-economy lite seats in a 2-2 configuration with 18.5” width and 36” seat pitch, and 52 seats in coach in a 2-2 configuration with 18.5” width and 32” seat pitch.

El Paso is a new destination for the Seattle-based airline and is the 90th non-stop destination from the airline’s home city. It stands on the Rio Grande across the Mexican border in the far western corner of Texas.
