JetBlue announces intention to expand during 2009

American low fares airline JetBlue has announced its intention to increase the number of flights it operates.

American low fares airline JetBlue has announced its intention to increase the number of flights it operates from Logan International Airport during 2009.

The carrier will offer business and leisure passengers the opportunity to fly to a further 12 destinations in the US and the Caribbean from Boston, with it currently offering flights to 31 cities in seven different countries.

Commenting on the proposed expansion, Marty St George, JetBlue’s vice-president of planning, said that it would benefit business people and those looking for a break.

"With our expanded schedule, easy, same-day trips between Boston and the nation’s top business centres like Charlotte and Raleigh are now a breeze," he said.

"And when you’re ready for a break, our new year-round flights to places like St. Maarten and San Juan make getting away even easier."

JetBlue will re-introduce its route between Boston and San Francisco International Airport on May 1st, while also increasing its frequency of flights to a number of cities including Chicago and Pittsburgh.

The New York based airline was the first carrier in the US to introduce free in-flight email and instant messaging services to its passengers.
