Alaska Airlines is expanding its international network with new nonstop service to two popular Mexican destinations this winter.

Starting on November 20, the airline will be the only U.S. carrier offering service between Los Angeles (LAX) and La Paz (LAP), a coastal city known for its diving and sport fishing. Flights will operate year-round, up to three times weekly.

The Seattle-based carrier previously served La Paz from 1997 to 2013.

On February 13, Alaska will launch daily nonstop flights between LAX and Monterrey (MTY), one of Mexico’s largest cities. Both routes will be operated by Embraer E175 regional jets.

“We recently celebrated 35 years of service to Mexico and are proud to connect travelers with the rich culture and natural beauty of the country. We look forward to continuing to serve as the carrier of choice from the West Coast, especially as we prepare to start service to these popular destinations in Mexico,” said Kirsten Amrine, vice president of revenue management and network planning at Alaska, in a press release.

The airline says tickets for the new flights will go on sale in the afternoon of July 3.
