Alaska Airlines announced today that it will be launching the longest flight in its network when service between Ted Stevens Anchorage International Airport (ANC) and New York John F. Kennedy International Airport (JFK) in June 2024.


The New York flights will run daily on a Boeing 737-8 between June 13th and August 19th. This is a long flight to not have lie-flat seats in First Class, but we’ll see how it fares when it begins next summer. New York John F. Kennedy International Airport (JFK) will be the 14th nonstop destination from Ted Stevens Anchorage International Airport (ANC). Other routes include:

  • Chicago O’Hare International Airport (ORD)
  • Denver International Airport (DEN)
  • Honolulu Daniel K. Inouye International Airport (HNL)
  • Las Vegas Harry Reid International Airport (LAS)
  • Los Angeles International Airport (LAX)
  • Minneapolis–Saint Paul International Airport (MSP)
  • Phoenix Sky Harbor International Airport (PHX)
  • Portland International Airport (PDX)
  • Salt Lake City International Airport (SLC)
  • San Diego International Airport (SAN)
  • San Francisco International Airport (SFO)
  • Seattle Paine Field International Airport (PAE)
  • Seattle-Tacoma International Airport (SEA)

San Diego International Airport (SAN) is another new airport to be connected to Ted Stevens Anchorage International Airport (ANC) with Saturday-only service between May 18th and August 17th (also on a 737-8).

Marilyn Romano, Regional Vice President for Alaska Airlines, said:

Alaskans love nonstop flights to and from the state. We like having great travel options and adding places such as New York and San Diego definitely fit the bill. During our peak summer days, we’ll have a robust flight schedule of 63 departures a day from Anchorage.”

Anthony’s Take: Alaska Airlines is continuing to expand its network and these new flights make it even easier to visit Alaska for its delicious seafood, wilderness, and cruises during the peak season.
