Alaska Airlines to add non-stop service between BWI and San Francisco

The airport announced Thursday that its newest carrier, Alaska Airlines, will offer nonstop daily flights between Indianapolis and San Francisco starting September 26 using Virgin America Airbus planes.

The new routes target United, which operates from San Francisco to all nine of the markets Alaska/Virgin America will enter. A redeye flight will leave SFO at 11:30 p.m. and arrive back at RDU at 7:30 a.m. the following day.

The United San Francisco flight is "now fully supported by strong market demand and is no longer supported by the state", IEDC spokeswoman Holly Gillham told IBJ in an e-mail. With the additional flights, Alaska Airlines and Virgin America will offer guests 125 daily nonstop flights to 42 destinations from the three major Bay Area airports.

In December 2014, Southwest announced nonstop flights between Oakland and BNA to start in June 2015.
