Virgin America will add new nonstop flights to Austin and Anchorage from its San Francisco hub, the carrier says.

San Francisco-Austin service will begin 21 May, and the carrier will start six non-stop seasonal flights per week from San Francisco to Anchorage on 6 June until 9 September. Tickets are now on sale for the routes.

"Austin and Anchorage present unique opportunities for us to expand our network into areas that demand and deserve increased flight options," said Virgin America chief executive David Cush in a statement.

SkyWest and JetBlue offer daily nonstop flights from San Francisco to Austin, Innovata schedules show.
