Alaska Airlines and American Airlines dropped some fresh new airline routes, giving us more destinations to explore and more chances to stack up our miles! With both airlines announcing new routes for fall and winter, we’ve got plenty of time to start planning our winter escape to warmer destinations.
The new non-stop Alaska Airlines routes
- Service between Portland to Miami begins November 17 and will operate daily and year-round
- Service between Palm Springs and New York’s JFK begins on December 14
- Service between San Luis Obispo and Las Vegas is set to begin on December 14
The new American Airlines routes
- In competition with Alaska, American Airlines is also adding a Portland to Miami route, starting November 5

In addition to these new domestic routes, American Airlines is increasing its service on 23 routes to the Caribbean and Latin America in December and expanding its winter seasonal service to Tortola, British Virgin Islands (EIS) with two daily nonstop flights. Notably, there will be a 40% boost in seat capacity from Charlotte to these regions compared to last winter, so cheers to that! The airline is also introducing new nonstop services from Nashville (BNA) and Cincinnati (CVG) to Cancun (CUN).
