Alaska Airlines is expanding its winter schedule with 18 new nonstop routes to various destinations across North America, Latin America, and the Caribbean, according to a company press release on Wednesday. Many of the 18 added routes are seasonal, including one brand-new destination.

“We’re thrilled to offer convenient connection for guests across our network with this expansion – whether checking destinations off their bucket lists or setting off to their favorite winter getaways; we’ve put together an exciting range of options from tropical destinations across Mexico to the most popular ski slopes in North America,” said Kirsten Amrine, vice president of network planning and revenue management at Alaska in a news release.
