IMG_3624 (1)Alaska Airlines announced plans for new non-stop service between New York and San Jose, California, as well as an expansion of its current service between New York and Seattle.

Service between New York’s John F. Kennedy International Airport and Norman Y. Mineta San Jose International Airport is slated to start on July 6. Flights will depart New York at 4:45 p.m. local time and arrive at 8:23 p.m. Return flights will leave San Jose at 7:05 a.m. and arrive at 3:43 p.m.

Alaska will operate the new route using Airbus A320 aircraft. The planes are equipped with eight first-class recliner seats with 55” seat pitch, 12 premium economy light seats with 38” seat pitch, and 126 seats in coach.

The Seattle-based carrier is also adding an early morning, non-stop flight from New York to Seattle to allow for connections to ten international destinations with its partner airlines.

In addition, the airline’s new lounge will open later this month in Terminal 7 at JFK. Amenities include a coffee barista and a décor that is intended to offer a living room-like atmosphere.

With the addition of these flights, Alaska and its subsidiary Virgin America will operate 15 daily flights linking JFK with six western cities including Portland, Los Angeles, San Francisco, and Las Vegas.
