Alaska Air offering a new San Jose >> New York flight

In an effort to keep Southwest at bay, Alaska Airlines is continuing to add new flights at San Jose international. The latest is a new nonstop from SJC to JFK that starts on July 6th.

JetBlue already has a redeye to JFK and Delta will start a new redeye on June 8th. Both Alaka and United have flights to Newark International as well.

One major convenience the new Alaska flight offers is that it's not a red eye. The flight leaves at 7:05am from SJC and arrives at JFK's Terminal 7 at 3:43pm. The return flight leaves JFK at 4:45pm and arrives back home at SJC at 8:23pm. The route will be served by an Airbus A320 (twin-jet, single-aisle).

San Jose went from having one direct flights to New York to five nonstops within a few years. It feels like there is still a lot more to come.

  1. Finally a day flight :)

    Off topic: Josh, can you get any info from Miss Kimberly Vaca regarding the Ross building's newest design? Specifically on what happened to the original curvy design that we saw back in June of last year. The curved design has been replaced with a basic glass box. Even the red vampire fins have been removed. Any tips as to why? Many inquiring (and frustrated) minds from skyscrapercity would like to know :)

    Thanks in advance to both you and Kim!

  2. Thank God not another red eye flight!
