  • Alaska Airlines announces new nonstop flights between KCI and San Francisco

Alaska Airlines, which recently acquired Virgin America, has added nonstop flights between New Orleans and San Francisco beginning September 21, according to a news release.

"The 10 new San Francisco routes and three new San Jose routes offer something for both the leisure and business traveler, including exciting destinations like New Orleans, Baltimore, Austin and Kona, Hawaii", said Andrew Harrison, executive vice president and chief commercial officer at Alaska Airlines.

In December, Alaska Airlines closed a deal to buy Virgin America airlines, further boosting Alaska's West Coast footprint. Kirby, who joined the Seattle-based carrier past year from Southwest Airlines, said after the route expansion the company will fly to 13 of the 15 largest markets from the Bay Area.

The expansion primarily will see Alaska competing against United Airlines, shows FlightGlobal schedules data. United had previously stopped service during summer months.

The daily Virgin America Airbus A320 flight will depart New Orleans at 4 p.m. and arrive at San Francisco International Airport at 6:30 p.m. local time. Alaska has also announced plans to soon begin flights from San Jose to Newark and Burbank.
