    Southwest passengers flying into Mineta San Jose International Airport may notice a speedier deplaning process for the next two weeks.

    That's because the airline is allowing San Jose-bound passengers to exit planes from both the front and rear exits, according to the airline.

    The two-week experiment, which is also being tested in Sacramento, was supposed to kick off June 1, but Southwest has already allowed select flights to try out dual-door deplaning.

    Southwest said is already uses the exit strategy for flights landing at Burbank's Bob Hope Airport.
