“We mark a significant milestone with Alaska Airlines today by offering new daytime, nonstop service to New York’s JFK airport,” said San Jose Director of Aviation John Aitken. “New York is the No. 1 requested U.S. destination by business and leisure travelers departing from Silicon Valley’s airport. This new flight complements our existing airline service to the New York area, and gives our customers more airline and flight schedule options to best meet their travel needs.”

The airline is operating an A320 on the route.

At JFK, Alaska has recently opened its newest lounge on the mezzanine level of Terminal 7 offering complementary access to all paid First Class guests.  

The lounge offers complimentary fresh foods, handcrafted espresso and full-leaf tea beverages and more.
