JetBlue to Add More Flights From San Francisco
JetBlue Airways will ramp up its popular service at San Francisco International Airport this winter, adding five new daily nonstop flights to its schedule in response to strong demand for its premium low-fare product.
Beginning in January, JetBlue will add two daily nonstop flights from San Francisco to its West Coast focus city at L.A.’s Long Beach Airport (for a total of five daily flights); a second daily nonstop flight to its focus city at Boston’s Logan International Airport; and a second daily nonstop flight to the airline’s home at New York’s John F. Kennedy International Airport Terminal Five. As previously announced, JetBlue will also begin San Francisco’s first nonstop service to its Fort Lauderdale, Fla. focus city beginning Nov. 17, 2009.
"JetBlue is proud to be expanding in San Francisco to give our loyal customers more flight options to their favorite destinations," said Robin Hayes, JetBlue’s chief commercial officer. "What could be better for travelers than more JetBlue flights with more legroom in coach, unlimited free snacks and drinks, and more free live entertainment choices than the other guys, not to mention some of the industry’s most celebrated customer service?"
JetBlue’s new routes will be offered aboard the Airbus A320, 36 channels of complimentary DIRECTV, more than 100 channels of XM Satellite Radio, and unlimited free snacks and drinks. For a small fee ($10 each way from the Bay Area to Long Beach, $25 each way to Austin, or $40 each way to the East Coast) customers can upgrade to one of JetBlue’s super-spacious Even More Legroom seats, which offer travelers a sumptuous 38" between seats.
New flight for Oakland
Across the bay, JetBlue also plans to add an additional nonstop flight from Long Beach to Oakland in January (for a total of 4 daily flights).
