History: First Jet Service To SAN

Mon Aug 06, 2001 8:06 pm

I'm just curious about which airline was the first to offer jet service to San Diego and on which aircraft it was offered. To where was it offered? Anybody know?

I'd also appreciate if any old-timers or historians could provide info about when specific airlines and aircraft first began serving San Diego. Many thanks for info supplied!

United 720s to SFO and AA 720s to PHX both started between July and October 1960-- dunno which was first. E-mail me if you want more info.
