California-based low-cost carrier Virgin America said it will launch service to Norman Y. Mineta San Jose International Airport as of May 1, 2013, with tickets on sale February 5 for four daily roundtrip flights from SJC to Los Angeles International Airport.
Virgin America's principal base of operation is San Francisco International Airport, where it first launched service in August 2007. The addition of flight service to SJC will expand the airline's presence in the greater Bay Area, the carrier said.
The carrier offers amenities like fleetwide WiFi, custom-designed leather seating, power outlets, personal touch-screen entertainment platforms, and new aircraft with three classes of service.
Virgin America said it is now the second largest airline carrier at its home airport of SFO.
In addition to the nonstop LAX service, the SJC network addition will also create roundtrip connectivity between San Jose and Virgin America's Boston, Philadelphia, Newark, Fort Lauderdale, Dallas-Fort Worth, New York City (JFK), Chicago, Las Vegas, Orlando and Washington DC(IAD) destinations.
