Alaska Airlines adds new routes

Alaska Airlines will add two new routes from San Jose to Southern California starting June 5, 2016, the company said.

The new, three-times daily nonstop service will connect Bay Area customers to Orange County/Santa Ana and San Diego. With this expansion, Alaska will operate 28 peak-day departures to 14 destinations from Norman Y. Mineta San José International Airport.

Alaska will fly the routes with 76-seat E175 jets, operated by SkyWest Airlines, which features 12 seats in first class, 12 seats in preferred class and 52 seats in the main cabin. The E175 boasts cabin dimensions on par with a 737.

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.
