JetBlue Expands Boston Service to Third Caribbean Destination: Cancun, Mexico


Boston, Vamos a la Playa!
(Boston, Let's Go to the Beach)

Nonstop Weekend Service Begins March 2, 2007

Second Daily Flight from New York to Cancun Also Announced

NEW YORK, Dec. 19, 2006 (PRIME NEWSWIRE) -- JetBlue Airways Corporation (Nasdaq:JBLU) today announces the expansion of its Caribbean network with nonstop service between Boston's Logan International Airport and Cancun, Mexico, effective March 2, 2007. In addition, JetBlue announced it will begin a second daily nonstop flight from New York's John F. Kennedy International Airport (JFK) to Cancun beginning March 1. The second daily flight from New York will complement the existing daily nonstop service to the Mexican destination that began November 30, 2006.

Cancun is the low-fare carrier's third Caribbean destination and 23rd destination in its route system served nonstop from Boston. JetBlue began service between Boston and San Juan, Puerto Rico, on December 13, 2006 and added service to Nassau, The Bahamas earlier this year, on February 2, 2006. The low-cost airline will operate a nonstop flight from Boston to Cancun every Friday, Saturday and Sunday during the peak months of November through April, and nonstop Saturday service from May through October. Regular one-way fares between Boston and Cancun will range from $129(a) to $399(a) each way when booked at www.jetblue.com or by calling 1-800-JETBLUE or 800-861-3372 if calling from Mexico.

"We are extremely pleased with the demand for our low-fare, high-quality service to Mexico," said David Neeleman, CEO and Founder of JetBlue Airways. "After just two weeks of service from New York to Cancun, it has become clear that more flights will benefit the many visitors who desire to travel to this tropical paradise. We look forward to making that possible with our additional service from Boston and our second daily flights from New York."

"Since beginning service from Boston just three years ago, JetBlue has become part of the Massachusetts employer family - growing steadily, adding hundreds of new jobs and helping to build the Massachusetts economy," said Massachusetts Governor Mitt Romney. "Today's announcement by JetBlue is part of a trend that I'd like to see continue long into the future."

It's great to see that JetBlue got approval for the BOS-CUN authority so quickly. I'm sure the route will do great; it's obvious that the JFK flights have been seeing very strong bookings as well.

Anyone remember the year-long debate between the DOT, B6 and DL?

When there is nobody competing or contesting your application, you get approval very quickly.

Also, I guess the folks at jetBlue PR don't know that Nassau is not in the Caribbean.
