JetBlue Airways has added a 56th destination to its route network as part of an effort to improve its services to the Los Angeles basin.
New flights to Los Angeles International Airport (LAX) from Boston and New York’s John F Kennedy International Airport have been launched by the airline, adding to the existing coast-to-coast service already provided through flights to Burbank and Long Beach airports.
Twice-daily flights are offered on both routes, although the 14:45 to 23:16 flight to LAX from Boston does not operate on Saturdays.
Commenting on the development, JetBlue CEO Dave Barger said: "As one of the world’s largest entertainment, cultural and business centres, savvy Los Angeles travelers continue to select JetBlue’s higher standard of service for their travel needs and today we are excited to give the LA Basin even more options – whether you prefer Long Beach, Burbank, or our newest bicoastal service from LAX."
Last month, the airline launched flights to Sangster International Airport in Montego Bay, Jamaica, from its home base of John F Kennedy International Airport in New York.
JetBlue Airways also plans to offer non-stop flights to Kingston, Jamaica from the New York hub from the autumn.
