Alaska begins San Jose, CA, from Spokane
Alaska began its new Spokane – San Jose, CA, service on 1 September.
The daily operation, using 76-seat Embraer 175s by Horizon Air, covers 1,195 kilometres.
Alaska will compete directly on this airport-pair with Southwest when the airline resumes it in November after a half-year coronavirus hiatus. Southwest began the route back in 2018.
When it returns, it will also be once-daily.
Bay Area hit high two years ago, but will be overtaken
Spokane – Bay Area had 379,000 seats last year across all three airports, OAG data indicates. This was down 9% YOY from the high of 2018, primarily from San Francisco’s decline.
Alaska launched a twice-daily Spokane – San Francisco offering on 19 March this year as a result of SFO’s decrease. However, it currently operates daily before its full schedule restarts later this year.
This coming winter, Alaska will have eight routes from Spokane and 17 from San Jose.
