JetBlue Airways is launching service to its 76th city, Charleston, South Carolina. JetBlue will serve Charleston International Airport (CHS) with twice daily nonstop service from New York’s John F. Kennedy International Airport (JFK) and a daily flight from Boston’s Logan (BOS).
JetBlue’s entrance to South Carolina has reportedly been met by such strong reception from the people of Charleston that the airline recently announced plans to add a second flight from Boston, with Saturday weekly service beginning April 6, 2013.
“Charleston’s unique charm and the hospitality of its people make for a perfect partnership with the excellent customer experience that we deliver,” said JetBlue’s Chief Operating Officer Rob Maruster.
“We couldn’t be more excited about adding Charleston to our growing network, and we look forward to connecting our newest city to New York and Boston with the best product and service in the skies.”
“Welcoming JetBlue to Charleston is truly a moment to savor,” says Wild Dunes Resort Managing Director and Charleston Area Convention & Visitors Bureau Chairman Frank Fredericks.
“As an airline, JetBlue is committed to providing a safe experience, competitive pricing, and superior customer service. As a community partner, JetBlue has already demonstrated its commitment to serving the Charleston area by signing on as the Official Airline of the Charleston Wine + Food Festival. We can now, thanks to JetBlue’s daily service to the Charleston International Airport, say that Charleston has blue in its sky 365 days a year,” says Fredericks.
