Four airlines now offer nonstop service between San José and New York-area airports

Delta Air Lines has responded to Silicon Valley’s strong passenger demand for more nonstop service to the New York City area by announcing daily nonstop service between Mineta San José International Airport (SJC) and New York’s John F. Kennedy International Airport (JFK) starting June 8, 2018.

“New York remains the most sought-after destination for Silicon Valley business and leisure travelers, and we enthusiastically welcome Delta Air Lines’ plans to add a new nonstop flight to JFK,” said San José Mayor Sam Liccardo. “We thank Delta for their confidence and investment in Silicon Valley’s Airport and wish the airline much success of this SJC-JFK route.”

Delta’s onboard experience will be on Boeing 737-800 aircraft, equipped with on-demand entertainment, power ports and in-flight Wi-Fi access at every seat. Delta will offer seating for 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 starting next spring,” said Ranjan Goswami, Delta’s Vice President, 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.”

he new Delta flight will operate as follows:

The inaugural Eastbound flight departs SJC the night of June 8, with the inaugural Westbound flight leaving JFK the next morning (June 9).

“This new service is a big win for our passengers,” said San José Director of Aviation John Aitken. “We’re grateful to Delta and we see this flight as especially great for New York-based business travelers who can arrive in Silicon Valley in time for a lunch meeting and can even travel home that same night if they wish. With four carriers flying nonstop to New York-area airports, SJC now offers an even more desirable menu of flight options throughout the day.”

JetBlue currently operates daily nonstop flights between SJC and JFK, while United and Alaska Airlines offer daily nonstop flights to Newark.

The new Delta offering is available for purchase now at delta.com, the Fly Delta App or by calling Delta at 1-800-221-1212.

The service complements more than 20 Delta departures on an average day at San José to Las Vegas and its hubs in Atlanta, Minneapolis/St. Paul, Los Angeles, Seattle and Salt Lake City, offering customers easy one-stop connections to its global network of more than 300 destinations worldwide.
