Alaska Air Group Expands Network out of California

Those who believed the Alaska Airlines / Virgin America merger to be a “big mistake” are beginning to be proven wrong by none other than the airline itself. The airlines’ single largest new market announcement in history occurred Thursday, when 13 new routes from San Jose and San Francisco were announced to further prove their candidacy to become “The West Coast’s Premier Airline.” The addition of these new routes brings Alaska Airlines’ Group to 81 daily departures from SFO and 32 daily departures from SJC.
