Alaska Airlines to provide daily non-stop service to Las Vegas

SAN LUIS OBISPO, CA — The SLO County Airport (SBP) is thrilled to announce the launch of its new daily non-stop service from SBP Harry Reid International Airport (LAS), scheduled to commence on December 14, 2023. This additional route expands Alaska Airlines’ commitment to providing convenient travel options for passengers in the Central Coast region.

The direct flight between San Luis Obispo and Las Vegas will operate daily non-stop service, offering travelers unparalleled access to the vibrant city known for its entertainment, world-class resorts, and lively atmosphere. Passengers can expect the renowned comfort and quality service that Alaska Airlines is recognized for throughout their journey.

“The SLO County Airport is excited to offer this new route between San Luis Obispo and Las Vegas to our region,” said Courtney Johnson, Director of Airports. “This route addition strengthens our connectivity and provides passengers with more travel options, reinforcing the commitment to facilitating convenient and efficient air travel for all.”

“We can’t wait to welcome guests on our inaugural flight from San Luis Obispo to Las Vegas, and on our daily nonstop service between both destinations moving forward,” said Neil Thwaites, Alaska Airlines regional vice-president of California. “As the premier West Coast carrier, we’re excited to offer guests this convenient route connecting SLO’s breathtaking views and popular wine region with Las Vegas’ world-class entertainment and food scene.”

The flights will be operated utilizing an Embraer E-175 which provides a capacity of 76 passengers. Tickets for this route are now available for purchase on the Alaska Airlines website, the mobile app, or through travel agents.

“Las Vegas has been our largest market without direct service for years,” stated Chuck Davison, President & CEO of Visit SLO CAL. “Having spent the first half of my career there, I know first-hand the pace the city moves at. When Las Vegans need a recharge, SLO CAL’s 80 miles of pristine coastline, 300+ wineries and our slower pace is a perfect respite. This new flight can have visitors relaxing at the beach or our wineries in less than two hours.” Travelers can explore and book their flights to Las Vegas from San Luis Obispo now by visiting or by contacting their preferred travel agent.

SLO County Airport (SBP) serves areas as far north as Southern Monterey County and as far south as Northern Santa Barbara County. The airport offers convenient access to and from the Central Coast. Residents and visitors have the choice of three commercial airlines with flights to several major U.S. hubs. The airport is also home to full-service general aviation and corporate facilities.
