Four new seasonal routes will take passengers from winters on the west coast to paradise destinations with turquoise waters and white sand starting this December. 

Introductory fares start at a very low price, so those who book first will get the best prices. 

Of course, more American airlines are offering great options to other sunny destinations this year, but here’s what travelers should know about Alaska Airlines’s new routes:

The new 737-9 aircraft—a recent addition to the fleet— will operate the Nassau route as these planes allow the carrier to fly longer distances, and the routes to Mexico will be operated by the aircraft E-175. 

Recent Updates On Destinations

The Bahamas is always an exciting destination for American travelers as it tends to surpass expectations. 

That’s why the low-cost carrier JetBlue has also included new routes to this destination, and a few months ago, Disney Cruise Line announced a new exclusive island in the country that will be added to its itinerary there next summer.

While there are many fascinating cities and the Mexican culture is quite vast and rich, American travelers seem to never get enough of the coast.
