JETBLUE GIVES FOUR MAINE REASONS TO FLY TO PORTLAND



Four Daily Flights From New York’s JFK Begin May 23

Fares Start at $59(a) each way



NEW YORK, (Feb. 23, 2006) - JetBlue Airways Corp. (Nasdaq: JBLU), New York’s hometown airline, will offer the only low-fare, nonstop flights between New York and Portland, ME beginning May 23, with four daily nonstop flights. Fares will range between $59(a) and $129(a) each way, saving customers approximately 70% from today’s high fares. Customers can save an additional $5 each way by purchasing online at www.jetblue.com.



“We can think of four Maine reasons customers will want to try our new Portland service,” said David Neeleman, JetBlue’s Chairman and CEO. “First, our low fares; second, the great JetBlue experience our customers have come to expect; third, it’s the only nonstop service between JFK and Portland; and fourth, Portland customers now have new low-fare connecting service to 30 other JetBlue destinations.”



“JetBlue’s news is great news for Maine,” said Governor John E. Baldacci. “New York is one of our strongest markets for Maine businesses and tourism. With new low cost easy connections to Europe through JFK airport in New York, Portland’s Jetport is poised for exciting growth. I’m honored to welcome JetBlue to Maine.”



“It gives me great pleasure to announce that JetBlue will be serving Maine’s flying public,” said Senator Olympia Snowe. “JetBlue is a model of 21st century commercial aviation, combining low fares and extraordinary service. I look forward to their continued success, both in Portland and across America.”



"JetBlue is a strong airline with an excellent reputation for customer service,” said Senator Susan Collins. “Its decision to begin service from the Portland Jetport to New York’s JFK airport is exciting news for Maine air passengers who are looking for a low-cost alternative and will surely prove to be a welcome boost to the State’s economy. I join so many others in welcoming JetBlue to Maine!”



"JetBlue's decision to come to the Portland Jetport is great news for Maine,” said Congressman Tom Allen. “A low cost carrier that provides regular service to JFK will be a boon to the Maine economy and will enhance national and international business opportunities for Maine businesses. I commend the efforts of JetBlue CEO David Neeleman, Jetport Manager Jeff Schultes, Mayor Jim Cohen, and all of the business and community leaders who helped bring about this exciting business development."



"I'd like to congratulate JetBlue Airways and welcome them to Maine,” said Congressman Mike Michaud. “Increasing the number of affordable flights in Maine will boost tourism and give Mainers more choices in air travel, so I'm very pleased with this announced expansion."



“Portland is excited to be working with JetBlue Airways, a premiere low-cost carrier and the positive impact it will have on Portland,” said Mayor James I. Cohen.



“The introduction of new JetBlue service to the Portland International Jetport is vitally important to our business community and all of Maine,” said Jeff Schultes, Portland Airport Manager. “We’re looking forward to a long lasting partnership with them.”

I know the premature release of this news isn't a good thing, but geez...the Portland Press Herald is running the story before this magic '8:00am' time stamp. So, there you go. Blame the Internet  Wink.

Biggest news within the news is that all four flights will be aboard A320s! Conventional wisdom was that PWM would get the 190s, and ***maybe** an upgrade to A320s during the peak summer season. That all four daily circuits to JFK will use A320s is great for the folks up in PWM. Right out of the chute, PWM will be a par with BTV in terms of having 4x nonstops each day.

Congratulations to PWM! Very deserved!

at least we find out an hour or so before the "official" release...could you imagine if we received news like this a day or so prior!? (of course i'm sure it woudln't matter anyway)

anyways, welcome to the family PWM! i'm also surprised too that it'll be operated by A320's to start. by the way, what's the peak/offpeak times of Maine? never been there so just askin!  Smile

well i'm off to bed now. gotta work my flight back to LGB tonight. g'night all!

This new service was a nice suprise. I'm going to admit I guessed wrong on the most likely city... But hey, good for Maine!  bigthumbsup 

It looks like 35 to 40 minute turn times. Not bad. There is one aircraft that overnights from 10:05pm to 7:15 am. This long of a time on the ground is a little more than I expected; I assume they'll do quite the clean of the aircraft in that time.

Great news for B6 and PWM.

600 seats per day to JFK..........hmmmm! These short flts will help the RASM increase, but I question the wisdom that PWM can support this kind of traffic to JFK initially.

Lots of new a/c this year and I guess they have to try and put them somewhere. 4 320 flts into JFK is better than 6 190's. On-time performance into JFK has suffered since B6's inception and will only get worse as the new terminal comes on-line to generate 250 flts per day. They also need a mid-west focus city in the next 6 months. Keep and eye on Mid-America or Gary as possible new additions.

Lightsaber,

The long overnight is probably for minimum crew rest reasons. The crew that brings in the 10:05PM RON will most likely take out the 7:05AM originator. The longer overnight time gives crew scheduling a buffer to keep the fleet launch ontime in case the RON comes in late.

We are surprised and pleased that A320s will be used on the route, but keep in mind that the service will debut around the time seasonal summer traffic starts picking up anyway. So, the plan may be to start with A320s through the summer and then back off to 190s--at least on 2x of the 4x daily runs--after Labor Day. The way to combat that, obviously, is for the folks at PWM to support this service very strongly. The best way to ensure that the A320s stay through Labor Day is to produce strong advance bookings.

Message to PWM:  bigthumbsup  You're being watched!

Nice! I was expecting this so I'm not at all surprised. However, the A320s are a bit of a shocker. 4x may be a bit overkill. 4x on an E190 may have been a bit more reasonable. However, at $59 o/w, maybe they'll be able to fill those babies up.

Congrats, PWM! Is this their first LCC?

Sounds great. This has been rumored forever and finally it is happening.

Now, Neeleman said 10 new cities, then they said 8 after AUS and RIC, BUT they said 8 new domestic cities before so techincally there are still 7 left but unless they change their mind and include BDA there would be 6 left, but it is really 7 new cities left.

Good luck in PWM!

Yes, but FlyI isn't around anymore. Perhaps I should have stated it more clearly...are there any LCC's at PWM currently? If not, then I'm surprised. Cities that have no LCC presence whatsoever are becoming less and less common in the US.

I would have liked to answer more on the industries in Maine, but a local will know more. I know there is Bath Iron works and other shipbuilders, many small industries, furniture and other woodwork, fishing. I think there is Biotech up there too... but I'm not recalling who.

My parents live in Kennebunkport, and they just took JetBlue a few weeks ago BOS-FLL-BOS (they went on a cruise). They will be happy to fly from PWM, via JFK, to do the same thing. The hope here is that Portland supports the hell out of this service, and it blossoms into more than 'just' four circuits to JFK. I'm a bit doubtful, because Burlington, VT is sitting on the same four nonstops to JFK they've always had.

Anyway, PWM has always 'suffered' from a stigma that it is a one-season airport: Summer. The Portland community needs to step up and prove to JetBlue that it can not only support these 4x A320s during the summer--which should be easy to do--but also do it the other three seasons. That will be the test. And if those A320s turn into 190s after Labor Day, I'll conclude that PWM is indeed a one-season airport.

Manchester has stolen a lot of traffic from PWM. Although MHT is 'my' airport, I take no pleasure in that because my parents live in Maine and I recall (fondly) seeing Delta 757s in Portland. Time for PWM to steal traffic back.

As for business, the Portland area has a fair amount of call-center work, such as MBNA (or whatever they are called now). But while there are a lot of workers, they aren't the business travel kind of workers. Then there's LL Bean up in Freeport. Basically, tourism is it. What LL Bean should do is what Bass Pro Shops is doing: they are building these huge 'destination' stores that people come from far and wide to visit. There will be a huge one next to Gillette Stadium in Foxborough, Mass. within the next year. Do that near Portland, and it would pay huge divdends because this kind of thing cuts across all seasons because it's a regional draw. LL Bean should build a massive 'destination store' near the airport, supported by their 'smaller' store up in Freeport.

I really, really hope that Portland maintains the A320s past the normal summer season. My inward fear is that they won't, and that's where the work will have to start. The served available market for PWM goes down to about York; MHT or BOS becomes more sensible further south than that. So, PWM officials are going to have to do a full-court press in the southern Maine tier to reverse the leakage that has thus far gone to MHT. Manchester still has numerous options that Portland doesn't have, and four A320s to JFK won't change that much.

I will be up in Maine on Labor Day visiting my parents and I'll be heading up to PWM to see JetBlue! I really, really want to see JetBlue succeed in Portland. That means, first, holding the A320s year-round; and, second, by adding Florida nonstops (one of the big reasons MHT is popular with Maine residents; we have the flights and PWM doesn't).

That schedule does seem to imply that the evening flight crew will take out the early morning departure, but there's not the slack in the schedule that there appears to be. It's just over 8 hrs off duty (the absolute minimum), which means there's very little room for delays. This also means that the crew will get at most 6 hrs of actual sleep, and JetBlue avoids schedules this tight. The usual procedure is to overnight two crews, not one. Probably the 1520 arrival crew will overnight and become the 0715 departure crew, and the 2205 arrival crew becomes the next day's 1600 departure crew. Which is fine with me, since there's a lot you can do in Portland with 18 hrs on the ground there.

Also, regarding 320 service, it may well turn into a seasonal market and some of the frequencies will be reduced in the fall. The evening flights would probably be the first to go. Or some could be converted to 190 flights, or a combination of the two. If one or more of the flights draws enough year round, good yielding traffic then they will stay 320's. The 320 vs 190 is not an all/nothing choice. There's lots of room to switch one off against the other.
