Update To JetBlue Please!

Mon May 29, 2000 3:54 am

We had a discussion about JetBlue a few weeks back, and it was mentioned that they would be announcing some new cities, one of which was supposed to be Ontario, CA. Well????? What's that status of that?

JetBlue Aims High

Feb 23, 2000

America's newest low fare airline, JetBlue, hopes to be flying to 30 US cities within three years.

The New York JFK-based carrier started services this month to Buffalo and Fort Lauderdale.

JetBlue, which has two leased Airbus A320 aircraft, starts a third route on March 16th to Tampa, Florida.

By the end of this year it plans to be serving eleven US destinations, including Burlington, Vermont; Rochester and Syacuse, NY.

It is also considering transcontinental services.

By the end of 2000 the airline plans to add 10 more Airbus jets to its fleet as part of a 25-plane order with the European manufacturer.

Chief Executive David Neelman told Flight International he expects the carrier to post an operating loss of USD$5.6 million in its first year but he expects to be in profit for the last five months of the year.

"We have the capital to survive and our costs are significantly lower than those of the major US airlines," he told the magazine.
