JetBlue New Service HPN-NAS

Thu Sep 22, 2011 4:27 pm

I saw on JetBlue.com is starting new service on Nov 29th from HPN to NAS using an E-190. That's quite a surprising new route, specifically because of the airport. I know NAS flights pre-clear so it's not an issue.


Apologies if this was already discussed.. unable to find anything in the search.

Good to see a new transcontinental service at HPN. Hope it works out well for JetBlue.

It was briefly discussed when the route was announced a few months ago (I'm too lazy to look for it).

HPN-NAS is not considered transcontinental, which would more imply a coast to coast route. I guess technically NAS is "transcontinental" in the same way as Atlanta or Tampa, but HPN-NAS is only 30 miles further than HPN-RSW per WebFlyer.
None shall pass!!!!

I think the confusion is that NAS is Miramar field in San Diego and also Nassau in the Bahamas. The E190 doesn't have the legs to do transcon, and New York - Caribbean route makes much more sense for B6's business model right now.

That makes sense, thanks for your explanation!
I can understand the mistake but White Plains to San Diego (Miramar, no less!) would be quite an oddball route!!

B6 seems to be enjoying their success out of HPN. Could HPN support a daily flight out to the west coast (maybe to LGB)/could a fully loaded A320 make it off the runway to the west coast?

We had problem once at our ariport that a flight from NAS was supposed to be arriving pre-cleared. They had to clear CBP here because the NAS pre-clearance office closes at 1945. I wonder if this is still the same? I assume that B6 would just have to divert into NYC to clear if this is the case still.

I am really curious to see how this route is going to perform. Is there even a demand from HPN to NAS. Why wouldnt they just add another JFK frequency
