Alaska Airlines will offer daily nonstop flights between San Diego International Airport (SAN) and Atlanta, Georgia, via Hartsfield-Jackson Atlanta International Airport (ATL), with flights starting May 16, 2024.
Atlanta will be the 37th nonstop flight destination Alaska Airlines offers from SAN. The airline currently offers 36 nonstop flights to cities across the Northwest, Northeast, California, Mexico, Florida, and all four major islands in Hawaii from San Diego. Alaska Airlines offers the most destinations of any airline operating out of SAN.
“We appreciate Alaska Airlines’ new options to destinations across the country,” said Kimberly Becker, San Diego County Regional Airport Authority President and CEO. “This new nonstop service to Atlanta offers Southern Californians direct access to Georgia’s capital and key economic center while providing easy access for Georgians to the warmth and beauty of San Diego.”
Alaska Airlines joins three other carriers that provide nonstop service to Atlanta, including Delta Air Lines, Frontier Airlines, and Southwest Airlines. Atlanta is among the larger transcontinental destinations from SAN, with roughly 450 passengers traveling daily between the two cities.
