JetBlue Introduces 24 New Routes

On Wednesday of this week, United Airlines announced seven new routes from four U.S. hubs. Now, JetBlue is getting in on the action, announcing 24 routes for over a dozen new locations in the mainland United States, Puerto Rico, Mexico, Central America, and the Caribbean. Here are all the details of JetBlue’s new flight routes.

JetBlue Increases Footprint in Northeast

The launch of two dozen new JetBlue routes includes seven new destinations from Newark’s Liberty International Airport. The inclusion of these new routes coincides with a budding relationship with American Airlines.

The JetBlue-American Airlines partnership, which continues to grow, includes full integration of JetBlue and American Airlines website booking capabilities, streamlining connectivity between the airlines’ complementary routes, and an expansion of network capacity.

The news appears to increase JetBlue’s aspirations of a larger footprint in the Northeast – and especially the New York Metropolitan Area.

“Adjusting to New Customer Behaviors”

JetBlue’s Head of Revenue and Planning, Scott Laurence, hailed the launch of new routes in a press release to investors:

“This is the latest example of JetBlue’s ability to be nimble and play offense as we quickly adjust to new customer behaviors and booking patterns,” he stated. “This latest series of new routes – even in the current environment – advances our revised network strategy, returns more aircraft to the skies, and doubles down on our ability to generate more cash sooner.”

Other recent moves by the airline include the extension of the American Airlines partnership and the launch of new credit cards for the Puerto Rico marketplace.
