I asked this question almost 2 years ago. Just wondering if anything has changed, anybody heard anything??......I know its a difficult proposition due to its proximity to SFO.

is Mexicana still the airport's sole foreign carrier??

No foreign carriers are looking at SJC. With International carriers cutting back at SFO and the financial turmoil, carriers will be conservative on where they expand.

MX is still the only foreign airline providing service into SJC. They offer 1-2 flights a day.

Does SJC still have the AA flight to NRT?

Perhaps WestJet could look at San Jose as an alternate to SFO...?

Discontinued.

WestJet discontinued service into SFO a while ago. I do not forsee them opening up N. California.

Discontinued.

Does anyone think SJC-NRT will return when AA gets their 787's?

Also if SJC were to get a European flight who would be the most likely candidate to fly it?

I don't think SJC will be getting any Asian routes. The dot-com bubble burst and took SJC-TPE with it, even SJC-NRT died. If any Asian routs were to go to SJC, I'd honestly think TPE, PVG, and BOM are the most likely, for SFO already handles those destinations just fine IMO.

That's why I'm asking, AA dropped it. Kind of hoping ANA or JAL would have looked into that, but nothing.

Its a shame, the city seems to be spending a lot of $$$ to upgrade the airport, and they don't even have direct to Canada. Maybe sometime AC could start RJ services to Vancouver or Toronto.

There was talk of Aer Lingus a couple of years ago, but I knew that wasn't going to happen. From Europe, I really don't see anybody landing at SJC, heck San Diego can't even land European service. I think an airline from the UK flies into SAN like once a week or something like.

With a *A hub right up the street from SJC, I really don't see AC offering flights to SJC.

If the Bay Area economy would improve, Westjet or AC could check SJC, maybe from YVR.
As for Asian airlines, with SFO next door, it's is highly unlikely, unless there's an airline which doesn't serve SFO (but maybe already LAX), wants to serve SFO and can grant some cargo or seats on each flight from SJC area or Asian companies.

Other than the Canadians, when it comes to international, SJC is better trying to woo airlines from México plus TA or even CM to try that airport.

Perhaps to YVR and/or YYC, and only if the financial climate improves in the next couple of years. I shudder at the prospect of an SJC-YYZ flight in an RJ.



The nice thing about a mistake is the pleasure it gives others.

Zoom UK flew 2x weekly SAN-LGW on its big blue 767-300 aircraft, and was even planning to upgrade it to 3x weekly over the next few months, but unfortunately, they went down in August. Yet another chapter in SAN's international carrier history closed much too quickly...
