Yee-hah! Gate celebrations were the order of the day in San Jose as the Californian airport heralded the start of Alaska Airlines’ new daily service to Dallas Love Field. The carrier now has six services to the Texan airport.
- Alaska Airlines added two new sectors to Dallas Love Field (DAL) this week, with operations from San Jose (SJC) and San Diego (SAN) becoming the carrier’s fifth and sixth routes into the Texan airport, joining its existing services from Portland, New York LaGuardia, Washington Reagan and Seattle-Tacoma. Both routes started on 16 February and both are flown daily by Alaska’s E175 fleet. Additionally both sectors face competition from Southwest Airlines, with the LCC offering three times daily flights from San Diego and daily services from San Jose.
