Delta resumes non-stop Atlanta-San Jose flights
The night flight takes off from San José at 10:55 p.m. (PST) aboard a Boeing 757 and lands in Atlanta about 4.5 hours later at 6:30 a.m. (EST).
Airport officials point out that heavy summer traffic, return flights and reopened restaurants, shops and concessions demonstrate the resilience of SJC and its business partners. While the state of California has lifted some COVID-19 requirements, travelers are still required to wear masks, and the airport continues to encourage social distancing.
“The return service to Atlanta represents a milestone in travel recreation,” said John Aitken, director of Mineta San José International Airport. “It’s Delta’s second resumption in as many weeks, and they have done an excellent job planning and reintroducing key markets along with increasing passenger traffic. Hartsfield-Jackson Atlanta International is the busiest airport in the world and we are excited to reconnect with both the city of Atlanta and the global network of routes it serves. “
Atlanta returns to Minneapolis-St. Paul (MSP) from SJC on July 19th. Delta Air Lines suspended air traffic between SJC and ATL in 2020 due to the COVID-19 pandemic and the associated drop in travel.
