Alaska Airlines announced it will add new, three-times daily service between San Diego and Sacramento and Burbank and San Jose, beginning March 16, 2017.
The nonstop service will connect California fliers to London, Beijing and Tokyo on Alaska’s partners British Airways, Hainan Airlines and Japan Airlines.
“These new routes will bring more options and low fares to our California customers, as well as creating new connections to key international business markets served by our partner carriers.” said Andrew Harrison, Alaska Airlines’ Chief Commercial Officer.
Alaska will fly the routes with 76-seat E175 jets, operated by SkyWest Airlines, which features 12 seats in first class, 12 seats in premium class and 52 seats in the main cabin. The E175 boasts cabin dimensions on par with a mainline jet. Onboard amenities include Wi-Fi Internet access, and Alaska Beyond Entertainment, which includes free and premium entertainment direct to customer devices and power outlets in the first class cabin.
Alaska Airlines, a subsidiary of Alaska Air Group (NYSE: ALK), together with its partner regional airlines, serves more than 100 cities through an expansive network in the United States, Canada, Costa Rica and Mexico.
