Alaska Airlines adds new service to Newark

Alaska Airlines has expanded flight service to the New York City area with multiple new routes to Newark Liberty International Airport from Seattle, Portland, San Diego and San Jose, the company said.

The new service comes as the Federal Aviation Administration approved Alaska Airlines´ request to operate four additional daily flights to Newark. New service from Newark, New Jersey will start in November 2016, with new service to San Jose, California beginning in March 2017.

The airline said it intends to fly the transcontinental routes with fuel-efficient Boeing 737 aircraft.

Alaska Airlines, together with its regional partners, flies 32 million customers a year to more than 110 cities with an average of 970 daily flights throughout the United States, including Hawaii, Canada, Costa Rica and Mexico.
