Alaska Airlines plans to launch three-times-weekly service between San Jose, California and Los Cabos in Mexico on November 20, subject to government approval.
The nonstop flight will operate on Wednesdays, Saturdays and Sundays.
“With its pristine beaches, great restaurants and world-class hotels, Los Cabos will be a welcome getaway this winter for our Bay Area customers,” says Joe Sprague, Alaska Airlines’ vice president of marketing. “We are pleased to offer more service to Mexico, along with the new Hawaii service we’ve recently added from San Jose and Oakland.”
Alaska Airlines’ schedule for its new San Jose-Los Cabos service calls for the flight to depart San Jose’s Norman Y. Mineta International Airport (IATA three-letter code SJC) at 10:30 a.m. on Wednesdays, Saturdays and Sundays and arrive at Los Cabos International Airport (whose IATA three-letter code is SJD, remarkably enough) at 2:30 p.m. local time. The return flight is timed to leave SJD at 3:20 p.m. and land at SJC at 5:35 p.m. local time.
The carrier will operate the service with Boeing 737-700s accommodating 12 passengers in first class and 112 in the main cabin.

Alaska and Horizon Air provide service to seven Mexico beach destinations: Ixtapa/Zihuatanejo, La Paz, Loreto, Los Cabos, Manzanillo, Mazatlan and Puerto Vallarta, in addition to flights to Guadalajara and Mexico City.
