NEW YORK, June 28, 2006 (PRIMEZONE) -- JetBlue Airways Corp. (Nasdaq:JBLU) today announces it will begin daily nonstop service between New York's John F.

"Sarasota/Bradenton distinguishes itself with its white-sand beaches, notable art museums, and extensive golf courses. With travel on JetBlue, vacationers and those traveling on business can now enjoy the flight as much as the destination."

Fredrick J. Piccolo, Sarasota/Bradenton President, CEO said, "We are thrilled to see JetBlue land at SRQ with flights to JFK and to their connecting cities. The addition of JetBlue at SRQ is a very strong validation of our market and airport."
