Additionally, Alaska is also expanding service between Seattle and JFK with an early-morning, non-stop flight, giving flyers convenient connections to 10 international destinations on its global partner airlines. This new service brings it to three daily flights between Seattle and JFK.
"We continue to add exciting new destinations from our key West Coast hubs and focus cities, providing our valued guests more non-stop options to meet their business and leisure needs," outlined John Kirby, vice president, capacity planning, Alaska Airlines. "Alaska offers the most coast-to-coast markets of any airline, and continues to expand our route network with over 40 new markets added since the acquisition of Virgin America."
Moreover, the new Alaska Lounge at JFK, located upstairs in Terminal 7, is expected to open to the public this month. It will offer a premium lounge experience featuring signature touches like a barista for custom crafted coffee drinks and a relaxing living room feel that embodies the airlines' cool, West Coast vibe.
