JetBlue is launching a variety of new routes this year – many made possible through its Northeast Alliance (NEA) with American Airlines – serving customers in the airline’s New York and Boston focus cities.
JetBlue is also advancing its focus city strategy on the West Coast with the introduction of an all-new international route in Los Angeles. These routes add more JetBlue flying across all corners of the airline’s route map in the Americas.
“The Northeast Alliance continues to provide us with new opportunities to unlock even more growth potential in New York and Boston, with added benefits for customers across our network as we introduce new flying in markets where for too long travellers have had little or no competition,” said Dave Clark, head of revenue and planning, JetBlue. “At the same time, we’re introducing new flying elsewhere in our network to grow on the West Coast as part of our broader 2023 growth plans.”
JetBlue’s new flights to New York and Boston brings more choice to many routes with limited competition today and is made possible through JetBlue and American’s innovative NEA. Across New York’s three major airports, the NEA will fly more than 500 daily departures in 2023, as well as nearly 200 daily departures in Boston. So far, the NEA has resulted in approximately 50 new routes out of JFK, LGA, BOS and EWR; increased frequencies on more than 130 existing routes; 90 nonstop routes with increased capacity; and 17 new international routes launched.
Outside the scope of the NEA, JetBlue is also independently advancing its focus city strategy at Los Angeles International Airport (LAX). New, year-round service between LAX and Puerto Vallarta, Mexico (PVR) will take off this summer. In 2023, JetBlue will operate service between Los Angeles and 20 nonstop destinations and offer more than 40 peak daily departures.
