Alaska Airlines today begins new flights between San Diego and Newark, New Jersey, the airline’s first nonstop flight between San Diego and the New York City area.

“We continue to offer more nonstop options from San Diego for our valued Southern California customers,” said John Kirby, Alaska Airlines’ vice president of capacity planning. “Newark becomes our third East Coast destination from San Diego along with Boston and Orlando, and provides travelers easy access to the New York City metro area.”

Earlier this year, the Federal Aviation Administration approved Alaska’s request to operate four additional daily flights to Newark. New service between Portland and Newark launched earlier this month, while new service between Newark and San Jose, California and a third daily flight between Newark and Seattle begin in spring 2017.
