Nonstop Flights from Santa Barbara to San Diego
Update by Santa Barbara Airport
In the days before the COVID-19 pandemic became a reality back in March, Santa Barbara Airport (SBA) and Alaska Airlines made the tough decision to postpone the announcement of new daily air service to San Diego from Santa Barbara. In the months since, the airline industry has dealt with the loss of all but essential air travel.
Yet, Santa Barbara Airport and Alaska Airlines are confident in the recovery of air travel in the months ahead as we combat the coronavirus. In that spirit of optimism, Alaska and SBA are announcing the start of direct daily air service between Santa Barbara and San Diego International Airport on November 20, 2020. Alaska Airlines already offers daily service to Seattle and Portland.
Flight time between Santa Barbara and San Diego is only one hour. “For anyone in Santa Barbara, traveling to San Diego has meant a miserable 6-8 hour drive through Los Angeles. But now, one of the best locations for both business and leisure is within reach,” said Airport Director, Henry Thompson.
San Diego: 3:05 PM
Santa Barbara: 4:05 PM
Santa Barbara: 4:45 PM
San Diego: 5:40 PM
The service will be provided on one of Alaska’s comfortable 76-seat Embraer-175 aircraft. Advance booking is available now on www.alaskaair.com. Alaska will offer special introductory fares starting at just $49 each way if purchased before August 10. Certain restrictions and blackout dates apply.
