Pack Your Shorts – JetBlue’s Going to Bermuda
Two Daily Flights From New York-JFK Start May 4
Fares Start At $129(a) Each Way
New York (February 2, 2006) -- JetBlue Airways Corp. (Nasdaq: JBLU) New York’s hometown airline, will begin two daily nonstop flights between New York’s John F. Kennedy International Airport and Bermuda starting May 4, subject to receipt of government operating authority. Fares start at $129(a) each way, and are available to customers online at www.jetblue.com.
“We’re bringing low fares – and a touch of blue – to the famous pink beaches of Bermuda,” said David Neeleman, JetBlue’s CEO. “We know our customers are going to love our award-winning service and the convenience of nonstop flights from New York to this exciting new island destination.”
“I am delighted with JetBlue Airways' announcement of new service to Bermuda from New York JFK Airport. This has been a top priority of my Ministry for more than four years. Thanks to JetBlue, air travel to Bermuda will soon be easier, more convenient, and far less expensive,” said Deputy Premier of Bermuda and Minister of Tourism & Transport, Dr. the Hon. Ewart F. Brown. "For a unique island resort destination such as Bermuda, JetBlue provides the ideal combination of high quality service at affordable fares. For too long, visitors desiring the unique Bermuda experience had to pay very high airfares for a two-hour flight from New York to enjoy our world-famous pink sand beaches. Now more than ever, with JetBlue's every day low fares from the Big Apple, we welcome first-time visitors to discover Bermuda."

Why would they post that at the end, when the majority of the BDA flight will likely be out of range of the D-TV?

There will be a lot of happy Bermudians. I like the schedule and the price. Presumably the quoted price doesn't include taxes. Having said that, even with say, $100 of taxes, that's still a great fare by our standards. Plus it's the E190. Will be a first here I'm pretty sure. Never flown JetBlue and I'm excited to give them a try.
Good to hear! I only wish the E190's would make it out west. I know... not for a few years.
So $258+ (Plus is tax/fees and we all know not all fares go for the minimum) for a round trip... Not bad at all! I know a few people who will take advantage of that! (Much better than a couple paying $1200+ for the air fare.)
Judging by the B6 launch schedule, they are skipping past April to get a few of the E190's into Orlando for Direct TV installation. Smart. Also give them a little slack on the E-jet launch.

Many moons ago, NYC/BDA was served by EA, PA, and BA. In fact, EA flew a DC-7 from WAS to BDA; BA flew the Bristol Britannia from NYC! As I said, many moons ago. Bermuda is one of the most beautiful places I've ever been. And I've been to a LOT of resort destinations around the world. If I had the opportunity to go back to Bermuda, I'd be there faster than the proverbial New York minute! With Jet Blue and Bermuda, you are virtually guaranteed a terrific holiday.

It's nice to see that B6's yield management department is finally getting with it! At $129 as the lowest fare for a flight that is shorter than NE-FL, this will produce amazing yields for JetBlue. I couldn't find a maximum fare anywhere but I would assume that it's $299.
This should be a successful route! I look forward to flying it this summer...
Most people on a.net hate JetBlue. Get used to it.
