Alaska Airlines adds new nonstop services



Alaska Airlines has announced new daily, nonstop service between San Jose, California and New York´s John F. Kennedy Airport (JFK) beginning July 6, the company said.

Additionally, Alaska is expanding service between Seattle and JFK with an early morning, nonstop flight, giving flyers convenient connections to Europe on its Global Partner airlines. Together, Alaska and Virgin America operate 15 flights a day to JFK from six West Coast gateways including Seattle, Portland, Oregon, Los Angeles, San Francisco, Las Vegas and soon San Jose.

The new Alaska Lounge at JFK, located upstairs in Terminal 7, will open to the public in late April. It will offer a premium lounge experience featuring signature touches like a barista for custom crafted coffee drinks and a relaxing living room feel that embodies the airlines´ cool, West Coast vibe.

Additional enhancements to the Terminal 7 airport experience, funded by a USD 65 million investment from British Airways, are helping to modernize the terminal and enhance the food and retail concession experience while providing new seating areas near the gates for an improved customer experience.

Alaska gates and the Alaska Lounge are located in the same terminal as Global Partners British Airways and Icelandair, providing guests convenient access to a combined 10 daily flights to top global destinations across Europe. Alaska allows Mileage Plan members to travel and earn miles to more than 900 destinations around the globe through a unique network of international partners, with many flying out of JFK.
