Alaska Airlines announced Wednesday it will add three daily round trip flights from San Diego to San Jose and Silicon Valley beginning June 5.

The flights will depart Lindbergh Field at 6:30 a.m., noon and 6:30 p.m. Flights from San Jose International Airport back to San Diego are at 8:30 a.m., 4:30 p.m. and 8:30 p.m.

Alaska will fly the routes with 76-seat Embraer E175 jets, operated by SkyWest Airlines, which feature 12 seats in first class, 12 seats in preferred class and 52 seats in the main cabin. Amenities include Wi-Fi Internet access and, in first class, 110-volt power in every seat.

“These new routes will bring low fares and an elevated inflight experience to our California customers, offering convenient connections to popular leisure destinations in Mexico and Hawaii served by Alaska as well as to Beijing and London, served by our partner carriers Hainan Airlines and British Airways,” said Andrew Harrison, Alaska Airlines’ chief commercial officer.
