Tri-Cities Airport to See Nonstop Service to Los Angeles on Alaska Airlines

Pasco, WA – Alaska Airlines today announced new nonstop service between Tri-Cities Airport (PSC) and Los Angeles International Airport (LAX). The daily route will begin October 1, 2024.

The LA Basin is currently the largest market for PSC without daily flights. In addition to direct access to Los Angeles, LAX is the busiest commercial airport on the West Coast, and will provide connectivity to Latin America, Europe, Asia, and more.

“Daily nonstop service to Los Angeles on Alaska Airlines has been a long time coming for the Tri Cities,” shared Buck Taft, Director of Tri-Cities Airport. “Our airport staff and regional partners have spent years working to connect to the airline’s Southern California market, and we are thrilled to see Alaska Airlines bring this important route to the community.”

“A direct flight to LAX opens up so much opportunity for Tri-Cities businesses and residents,” said President and CEO of Tri-City Development Council (TRIDEC) Karl Dye. “The easy access to Latin America is especially important for our region. Being able to hop on an Alaska Airlines flight in Tri-Cities and connect through to Guadalajara? That’s huge.”

Per Alaska Airlines’ website, the flight’s current schedule is:

The announcement continues PSC’s growth in popularity for both passengers and airlines. Last year was the airport’s busiest year on record, with 872,578 total passengers, and the Alaska Airlines flight to LAX will be the third new PSC route to launch in 2024—American Airlines began service to Phoenix Sky Harbor (PHX) in February and Avelo Airlines will start twice-weekly service to the Sonoma wine country May 1.

Alaska Airlines will serve the PSC-LAX route on a three-class Embraer 175, with 76 seats. Tickets are on sale now at
