Alaska Airlines to Add 13 Nonstop Routes From Bay Area

 

alaskaairSAN FRANCISCO — Three months after its acquisition of Virgin America, Alaska Airlines is expanding its Bay Area flight plans, adding 13 new nonstop markets from San Francisco International Airport and Mineta San Jose Airport. The routes mark the single largest new market announcement in Alaska Airlines history. With the additional flights, Alaska Airlines and Virgin America will offer guests 125 daily nonstop flights to 42 destinations from the three major Bay Area airports.

“The 10 new San Francisco routes and three new San Jose routes offer something for both the leisure and business traveler, including exciting destinations like New Orleans, Baltimore, Austin and Kona, Hawaii,” said Andrew Harrison, executive vice president and chief commercial officer at Alaska Airlines. “Our strategy is to use the same philosophy that’s worked well for us in our Pacific Northwest hubs, which is to offer convenient, nonstop flights to the places guests fly to most. And if your itinerary requires travel overseas, our 10 global airline partners offer 137 international departures a week from the Bay Area.”

The new flights build on previously announced Bay Area routes scheduled to begin in the coming months, which include San JoseNewark, San JoseBurbank, San FranciscoOrlando, San FranciscoOrange County, San FranciscoMinneapolis and San FranciscoMexico City.

“With this announcement, Alaska and Virgin America have demonstrated their continued commitment to the San Francisco Bay Area,” said Ivar Satero, San Francisco International Airport director. “Like both of these great airlines, we have a passion for creating exceptional travel experiences, and we are thrilled that our guests can now enjoy more destinations from Alaska and Virgin America.”

Alaska Airlines continues to operate Virgin America as a separate airline and hasn’t made a decision yet on what will happen to the brand in the future.
