Alaska Airlines will soon offer non-stop flights from San Diego to Newark, New Jersey, the San Diego County Regional Airport Authority announced on Thursday.
Flights will leave daily from San Diego to Newark at 9:55 a.m. and arrives at 5:55 p.m. eastern time. The daily flight from Newark will leave at 7 p.m. and arrive in San Diego at 10 p.m.
The service was added after the Federal Aviation Administration and the Port Authority of New York and New Jersey approved a request by Alaska Airlines to fly daily flights between the two cities.
“We are pleased Alaska Airlines continues its network expansion in San Diego by adding flights to the New York/Newark metropolitan area. Alaska Airlines’ new service to Newark, New Jersey will provide a much needed nonstop option for accessing the New York City area’s west side,” said Hampton Brown, San Diego International Airport’s director of air service development.
This service will be the third East Coast destination from San Diego by Alaska Airlines.
Ticket for the flights will go on sale July 25 and the service will began operating on November 21.
