With 32 nonstop destinations and 20 connecting cities to choose from, JetBlue Airways (Nasdaq: JBLU), Boston’s largest domestic carrier, today announces even more expansion of its daily service from Boston’s Logan International Airport (BOS). Five daily nonstop flights from BOS to Baltimore/Washington International Thurgood Marshall Airport (BWI), one of the airline’s newest destinations on its growing route network, will begin on March 1, 2010. On September 9, JetBlue launched new service to Baltimore with four daily flights to complement its existing six daily flights between Boston and Washington Dulles International Airport (IAD).
“Customers in Baltimore have discovered what those in Boston have known for years: JetBlue offers more than just an unassigned seat and a handful of peanuts to their destination,” said Scott Laurence, vice president of network planning for JetBlue Airways. “With five straight J.D. Power awards received for our customer service, we also provide our customers with lots of legroom, unlimited free snacks and drinks and pre-assigned leather seats on brand new airplanes—all at the cost of your airfare. In addition, JetBlue flights offer 36 channels of DirecTV programming and more than 100 channels of XM Satellite radio on personal seatback screens. Check out the live TV—it’s on, it’s always on, and it’s free!”
JetBlue’s everyday low fares start at just $39 (a) each way with a 21-day advance purchase. The airline’s schedule between Boston and Baltimore/Washington:
JetBlue’s Baltimore service is operated by its full-size EMBRAER 190 jets, with seating for 100 customers. The E190 is outfitted with all-leather seats in a spacious 2 x 2 configuration—with no middle seats!
With its new service to Baltimore/Washington, JetBlue now offers customers service to more destinations than any other carrier at Boston’s Logan, with a choice of 32 nonstop business and leisure destinations across the United States and into the Caribbean and Mexico. Maryland customers also have the opportunity to seamlessly connect to L.A./Long Beach; San Diego; Seattle; and San Francisco from the airline’s growing network in Boston. In addition, customers can take advantage of convenient connecting service operated by JetBlue’s marketing partner, Cape Air, to fly onward to some of New England’s most beautiful destinations including Hyannis, Martha’s Vineyard, Nantucket, Provincetown, Mass. and Rutland/Killington, Vt.
