JetBlue Announces Continued Growth in Boston and Fort Lauderdale-Hollywood Focus Cities

Added Flights Provide New Nonstop Service and New Connection Choices for Customers

NEW YORK--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- JetBlue (NASDAQ: JBLU) today announced it is further expanding its presence in its Boston and Fort Lauderdale-Hollywood focus cities with the addition of two new transcontinental routes. Flights between Boston Logan International Airport (BOS) and Salt Lake City International Airport (SLC) will begin Thursday, May 12, 2016. Flights between Fort Lauderdale-Hollywood International Airport (FLL) and San Diego International Airport (SAN) will begin Thursday, June 16, 2016. Both routes will operate year-round.

Seats are on sale starting today with introductory fares between Boston and Salt Lake City starting at $47 one-way (a), a nod to Utah’s Pioneer Day which commemorates the first Mormon pioneers who settled in the area in 1847. Introductory fares are also available between Fort Lauderdale-Hollywood and San Diego starting at $99 one-way (b).

“We are so pleased to continue JetBlue’s growth in our east coast focus cities and in the western U.S. with these two new nonstop routes,” said Dave Clark, vice president network planning at JetBlue. “These four destinations all feature spectacular outdoor attractions and bustling business centers. Whether you are going for business or leisure, it’s never been easier to travel between these four cities and experience all they have to offer.”

Boston becomes JetBlue’s fourth nonstop destination from Salt Lake City and will provide new service between Utah’s capital city and Logan International Airport where JetBlue is the top airline. With nonstop flights to more than 60 destinations from Boston, JetBlue is on track to operate up to 140 daily flights this summer. Customers traveling to Boston can take advantage of new convenient connections to additional JetBlue destinations throughout the U.S., Caribbean and Latin America such as Washington (DCA), Pittsburgh (PIT), Richmond, Va. (RIC) and St. Thomas, Virgin Islands (STT). The route will also create a nonstop link between JetBlue’s Salt Lake City Customer Support Center and the airline’s second-largest focus city.

In San Diego, JetBlue will now offer nonstop service to three destinations and the airline will operate the only nonstop to Fort Lauderdale-Hollywood. JetBlue’s South Florida focus city will soon offer more than 100 daily flights to destinations across the JetBlue network, including top destinations in the Caribbean and Latin America like San Juan, Puerto Rico (SJU); Quito, Ecuador (UIO); and Lima, Peru (LIM).
