JetBlue Adding More Nonstops to Bermuda
JetBlue is increasing its service to Bermuda, the carrier announced this week.
The company will be expanding service with two year-round daily flights and a third summer seasonal roundtrip from New York City to Bermuda.
JetBlue will also be operating all of its Bermuda routes on a 150-seat Airbus A320 aircraft in place of its 100-seat Embraer 190 aircraft.
“This is a big win for our loyal JetBlue customers on all sides of these routes whether in New York, Boston or Bermuda,” said Robin Hayes, president and chief executive officer, JetBlue. “With more flights, larger aircraft and a variety of flight times to accommodate customers’ needs, JetBlue – with its affordable fares and award winning service – is positioning itself as the top choice for travel to and from Bermuda.”
The new service will begin May 18, 2017.
JetBlue will also be increasing its seasonal summer service between Boston Logan International Airport and Bermuda to year-round daily service.
“The Bermuda Tourism Authority is proud to be a marketing partner with JetBlue, creating incremental business for our island and for the airline. We have grown vacation air arrivals out of New York by 44 percent this year – and we have also been successful at attracting a younger, more adventurous traveler to Bermuda,” said Bermuda Tourism Authority CEO Bill Hanbury.
