While SJC is thus 35 miles farther from the city of San Francisco and Napa and Sonoma Wine Country, it's closer to other attractions like Paso Robles Wine Country, Santa Cruz, Monterey, Carmel, Big Sur, Hearst Castle, Yosemite, etc.
It's a little weird there's more Asia service than Europe; are there any other US airports like that?
SJC has 2 flights to Europe and 3 to Asia. I don’t believe PVG is daily either. It really isn’t that much of a difference.
SLC is at the extreme though. Up to 4 flights to Europe and none to Asia.
It's not terribly extreme for cities to have multiple services to Europe and limited to none to Asia. Look at the big Florida airports, for example. MCO has 19 routes to Europe, but one to Asia (if one counts EK/DXB). MIA has 30 to Europe, and 2 to Asia (again, counting TLV and DOH as Asia). TPA has 5 transatlantic routes, but none to Asia. That SJC should have a balance between east and west is unique, particularly for a non-hub airport.
