United to Begin Non-Stop Service to Alaska from Los Angeles
United announced it will be launching a new non-stop seasonal summer service to Ted Stevens Anchorage Airport from its west-coast LAX hub using its Boeing 737-800 jet. Flights are scheduled to begin June 18, 2020, and will operate once daily in each direction through Aug. 17, 2020.
The airline operates an extensive route network out of Anchorage during the summer. During the summer 2020 travel season, in addition to LAX, United will also offer seasonal service between Anchorage and five of its U.S. hubs. United will operate twice-daily service from Chicago, twice daily service from Denver, daily service from New York/Newark, daily service from Houston, and daily service from its second west-coast hub, San Francisco.
Although the non-stop service is new to United’s network, the Anchorage route from LAX is already served year-round by Alaska Airlines and is served by American Airlines seasonally. Furthermore, Alaska Airlines recently announced a new seasonal non-stop service between Anchorage and San Francisco last week launching in April 2020.
Tickets will be available for purchase on Saturday, October 12.
