-- No. 1 Requested Domestic Route by Business and Leisure Travelers;
Five SJC Carriers Now Offer Nonstop Flights from SJC to New York-Area Airports -- 


San Jos√©, CA ‚Äì Delta Air Lines today began flying nonstop between New York‚Äôs John F. Kennedy International Airport (JFK) and Mineta San Jos√© International Airport (SJC). Delta‚Äôs new service is in response to strong passenger demand for more nonstop service to the
New York City area, the No. 1 requested U.S. destination by SJC travelers.

“New York is the most sought-after destination for Silicon Valley business and leisure travelers, and we warmly welcome Delta Air Lines’ new nonstop flight to JFK,” said SJC’s Director of Aviation John Aitken. “We thank Delta for their confidence and investment in Silicon Valley’s airport and see this service is already being embraced by our community on the inaugural day with full inbound and outbound flights.”

Delta’s SJC-JFK service operates using Boeing 737-800 aircraft, equipped with on-demand entertainment, power ports and in-flight Wi-Fi access at every seat. The seating configuration is 16 in First Class, 36 in Comfort+ and 108 in the main cabin.

"We've heard loud and clear from our Bay Area customers that nonstop service to New York City is important to them, and we're pleased to offer this new daily flight," said Ranjan Goswami, Delta's Vice President, Los Angeles and Sales-West. "In addition to New York City access, this flight enables convenient connections to dozens of cities at our JFK hub to the Northeast and internationally."

The new Delta flight operates as follows*:

  • San Jos√© ‚Äì New York/JFK, DEPARTS 10:35 p.m., ARRIVES 7:08 a.m. (next day)
  • New York/JFK ‚Äì San Jos√©, DEPARTS 8:30 a.m., ARRIVES 12:08 p.m.

*Times are local. Average flight time is 6 hours.      

New York-based business travelers will especially benefit from this flight and its timing as they can arrive in Silicon Valley in time for meetings at lunch and in the early- to late-afternoon, and can even travel home the same evening.

Delta is SJC‚Äôs third largest carrier, offering a total of 27 peak-day nonstops to six other cities:  Atlanta, Las Vegas, Los Angeles, Minneapolis/St. Paul, Salt Lake City and Seattle.

In addition to Delta’s New York-JFK service, other SJC carriers offering daily nonstop service to the New York area are:

  • New York/JFK ‚Äì JetBlue Airways‚Äô late-evening flight and Alaska Airlines begins daytime service on July 6, 2018.
  • Newark ‚Äì Alaska and United Airlines, both daytime flights.

San José is the 10th largest city in the United States, yet it is stuck in the 1980’s with a management structure more suited for small cities.

As we face the greatest series of crises in our lifetime – a global pandemic and the deepest economic recession since the great recession – we must have the people’s choice, an elected Accountable Mayor, be directly responsible for the city.
