Riding strong commercial flight sales, Sonoma County airport expects to see expanded service to three international hubs starting next spring.

Alaska Airlines, which operates nine nonstop flights daily from Santa Rosa to five West Coast cities during summer peaks, will add a second daily trip to San Diego International Airport starting March 19. The year-round Southern California route is the airline’s busiest from Charles M. Schulz-Sonoma County Airport, leading the Seattle airline to commit to its 10th flight next spring.

Not to be outdone, American Airlines, which began offering direct seasonal service to Dallas-Fort Worth International Airport in June, has signaled it will transition the route to a year-round service after the flight returns in the spring. That flight, which has logged average passenger capacities at better than 80% through September, is set to end Jan. 6 before returning on a more permanent basis on April 7. And there’s a possible second daily flight from here to American’s headquarters in the future.
