JetBlue announced that it is increasing service to Bermuda with two year-round daily flights and a third summer seasonal roundtrip flight between the popular island destination and the airline’s northeast focus cities.
Here are three Fast Facts about JetBlue’s Increased Service To Bermuda:
1. JetBlue to use Airbus A320 Aircraft for all Bermuda routes.
JetBlue said it will now operate all Bermuda routes using its 150-seat Airbus A320 aircraft in place of its 100-seat Embraer 190 aircraft. The move further advances JetBlue as the fastest growing U.S. carrier in Bermuda.
2. JetBlue to operate daily flights between JFK Airport and Bermuda’s BDA
Starting May 18, 2017, JetBlue will operate daily year-round flights between New York’s John F. Kennedy International Airport (JFK) and Bermuda’s L.F. Wade International Airport (BDA) with an evening departure from New York and a morning departure from Bermuda.
Additionally, the airline will operate a second daily roundtrip during the summer peak with a morning departure from New York and an afternoon departure from Bermuda. Together, the enhanced New York flight schedule and additional service will expand JetBlue’s current once daily year-round service and offer more travel options for customers on both sides of the route. This ensures a well-timed schedule for the Bermuda-based customers every day of the year. Flights between New York and Bermuda are on sale starting today with introductory fares starting at $49 one way (a).
3. JetBlue to increase seasonal summer service between Boston Logan International Airport and Bermuda.
Also starting May 18, 2017, JetBlue will increase its current seasonal summer service between Boston Logan International Airport (BOS) and Bermuda to year-round daily service. Flights, with a morning departure from Boston and an afternoon departure from Bermuda, are also on sale starting today with introductory fares starting at $79 one way.
The new and expanded flights will allow for even more nonstop service throughout the year between JetBlue’s northeast focus cities and Bermuda. The flights will also benefit connecting customers in Bermuda and across the JetBlue network. Now, travelers can conveniently connect to an additional nine JetBlue cities, such as Houston and Jacksonville, Fla.
“This is a big win for our loyal JetBlue customers on all sides of these routes whether in New York, Boston or Bermuda,” said Robin Hayes, president and chief executive officer, JetBlue. “With more flights, larger aircraft and a variety of flight times to accommodate customers’ needs, JetBlue – with its affordable fares and award winning service – is positioning itself as the top choice for travel to and from Bermuda. I’d also like to extend a special thank you to Bermuda Tourism Authority CEO Bill Hanbury who was instrumental in helping make this announcement possible.”
“This announcement today will provide further opportunities for our East Coast guests to visit our shores and help meet the increasing demand for airplane seats,” said Minister of Tourism, Transport and Municipalities Sen. the Hon. Michael Fahy JP. “This has been a very positive year for tourism in Bermuda and I am thrilled for 2016 to conclude on such an encouraging note.” – BusinessNewsAsia.com
