Already serving more nonstop destinations than any other airline from Boston Logan International Airport, JetBlue Airways has announced another round of service-expansion plans from the airport.
Effective May 3, 2010, JetBlue will boost its Caribbean flight schedule substantially, offering Boston travelers 25 per cent more departures to destinations including Aruba; Cancun, Mexico; Montego Bay, Jamaica; and San Juan, Puerto Rico.
JetBlue’s expanded service to the Caribbean comes on top of its previously announced plans to grow departures from Boston by 30 per cent in 2010. With its expanded schedule, JetBlue and its growing base of 1,300 Boston crewmembers will offer travelers more than 70 daily flights to 33 destinations.
In its 2010 Boston summer schedule, JetBlue will operate:
● Three additional weekly flights to Aruba, for a total of five;
● Two additional weekly flights to Cancun, for a total of three;
● One additional weekly flight to San Juan, Puerto Rico, for a total of 11;
● One additional weekly flight to Montego Bay, Jamaica (for a total of two (subject to receipt of government operating authority);
● Daily flights to Bermuda, a total of 7 weekly; and
● Daily flights to Santo Domingo, Dominican Republic, a total of 7 weekly.
The airline will operate the increased flight frequencies on these routes year-round.
JetBlue also offers winter-only nonstop service to Nassau, Bahamas, and to St. Maarten in the Netherlands Antilles. Daily connecting service to these and other Caribbean destinations is available year-round via New York JFK.

“JetBlue’s growth at Boston is so impressive and we are thrilled the airline continues to place such strong belief in Logan and the Boston market,” says Edward Freni, Massport’s director of aviation. “This added service to the Caribbean is in addition to the airline’s planned 30 per cent increase in its Boston schedule for the summer of 2010. It is not only good news for travelers, but with 1,300 Boston-based crewmembers and more needed to support JetBlue’s continued growth, it is wonderful news for the region.”
