Virgin America adds flights to RDU

Virgin America adds flights to RDU

The addition comes amid a push to expand the airline's Bay Area footprint after Alaska Airlines acquired Virgin America, with 13 new nonstop flights to San Francisco International Airport and Mineta San Jose Airport, according to an Alaska Airlines press release. A daily flight to and from Nashville International Airport (BNA) will be offered. A redeye flight will leave SFO at 11:30 p.m. and arrive back at RDU at 7:30 a.m. the following day. On all of those routes except San Francisco-Philadelphia, United now has no competition, according to the website Flight Connections.

Alaska Airlines announced today that it will be adding a direct flight from the Crescent City to the City by the Bay in the next few months.

For the second time this week, Indianapolis International Airport is announcing an additional nonstop flight.

Rob Wigington, MNAA president and CEO, said Alaska Airlines' providing BNA's first year-round nonstop service to Seattle in 2015 provides some context to today's announcement.
