Alaska Airlines is now flying nonstop from both Los Angeles and Seattle to Nassau, The Bahamas. 

“We are thrilled to welcome the first nonstop flights on Alaska Airlines from Los Angeles and Seattle, making it easier than ever for those on the West Coast to visit our beautiful destination,” said Joy Jibrilu, CEO of the Nassau Paradise Island Promotion Board. “This strategic expansion is a testament to the collaborative efforts between our destination and our airline partners and I want to thank Alaska Airlines and their planning team for working to make this new route a reality. From white sandy beaches and crystal-clear turquoise waters to culture around every corner and a variety of world-class resort options, Nassau & Paradise Island offer something for every type of traveler, and we look forward to having even more West Coast travelers discover what makes our islands so special.” The Goldwynn Resort and Residences in Nassau.

The Los Angeles-Nassau flights are operating four times each week for the peak season. Seattle-Nassau flights are operating three times per week for the same period. Both routes will run through April 10, 2024, operated on Boeing 737 aircraft, according to Alaska.

Nassau is one of the hottest destinations in the wider Caribbean, having been named most recently as Caribbean Destination of the Year in the 10th annual Caribbean Travel Awards.

That’s due to a number of factors, from a dynamic, revived downtown area to a Caribbean-leading cultural offering to the continued success of the Baha Mar and Atlantis Paradis Island megaresorts.

It’s the second major route between Los Angeles and the Caribbean to launch in the last few years, joined by Cayman Airways’ landmark service between Grand Cayman and LAX, which recently expanded.

“The Bahamas is committed to establishing new partnerships, such as these exciting new routes with Alaska Airlines, that will enhance accessibility to our beautiful shores for all to experience the warm hospitality and rich heritage that awaits,” said Bahamas Tourism Minister and Deputy Prime Minister Chester Cooper. “In 2023, we surpassed record-breaking tourism arrivals eclipsing 8 million visitors, and with this new service, anticipate this momentum to continue steadfast.”
