JetBlue announced the next phase of growth at Boston’s Logan International Airport (BOS) as it advances toward its goal of 200 daily departures in the coming years. Beginning this summer, JetBlue will add more flights on twelve popular routes while also expanding or adjusting schedules to offer hourly service to Washington, D.C. and the New York metro area. The move, which will benefit both leisure and business customers, is the latest in a series of growth announcements in Boston where JetBlue flies to more nonstop destinations, operates more flights and serves more travelers than any other airline.

“JetBlue started building up our Boston operation from the moment we arrived more than fifteen years ago, and long before any other airline recognized the needs of New England’s travelers,” said Marty St. George, executive vice president and chief commercial officer, JetBlue. “The growth set for this year underscores our ongoing commitment to growth inBoston and introducing our award winning service to even more travelers in the years ahead.”

More Flights to Top Destinations

JetBlue will phase in more flights over the summer and fall on twelve existing Logan routes stretching across the eastern half of the United States to/from:

  • Austin–Bergstrom International Airport (AUS)
  • Charleston International Airport (CHS)
  • Chicago’s O’Hare International Airport (ORD)
  • Cleveland Hopkins International Airport (CLE)
  • Detroit Metropolitan Wayne County Airport (DTW)
  • Nashville International Airport (BNA)
  • Newark Liberty International Airport (EWR)
  • Orlando International Airport (MCO)
  • Philadelphia International Airport (PHL)
  • Raleigh–Durham International Airport (RDU)
  • Ronald Reagan Washington National Airport (DCA)
  • Savannah/Hilton Head International Airport (SAV)

Streamlined Schedules to Key Northeast Markets

JetBlue is also introducing enhanced schedules between Boston and two top northeast corridor business markets: Washington and New York City.

JetBlue is adding up to four additional daily flights between Logan and D.C.’s Reagan National Airport and will adjust its schedule to offer near-hourly weekday service – from 6:00 a.m. until 9:30 p.m. – between New England and the nation’s capital. The new service – with Boston flights departing at the top of the hour – is aimed at meeting the growing demand for travel between the two cities while also offering a customer-friendly, straight-forward departure schedule. Flights will be phased in beginning this summer.

Similarly, JetBlue will also introduce near-hourly weekday service between Boston and the New York metro area with service between approximately 5:30 a.m. and 10:00 p.m. Logan flights will depart at the bottom of the hour for one of the three major New York area airports: John F. Kennedy International Airport (JFK), LaGuardia Airport (LGA) or Newark Liberty International Airport (EWR). JetBlue’s unique service pattern is designed to meet the needs of travelers flying between Boston and anywhere across the New York metro area. The flight schedule between New York and Boston will be phased in beginning this summer.

Boston by the Numbers and Beyond

Beyond the numbers, JetBlue has also helped bring new gates to Logan’s Terminal C, added the airline’s award-winning Mint premium service with lie-flat seating on a variety of routes, and introduced an array of unique destinations not served by any other airline – including recently launched flights to Havana, Cuba; Steamboat Springs, Colo.; and Palm Springs, Calif.

Later this year, JetBlue will take delivery of new, fuel-efficient A321 NEO aircraft, bringing another wave of cabin and comfort improvements along with additional range capabilities. Then, starting in 2020, JetBlue will also steadily replace its EMBRAER E190 fleet with the larger and more fuel-efficient Airbus A220, providing more seats in the market at a lower operating cost, and an improved onboard experience.
