LONDON – U.S. carrier JetBlue has announced new routes from their focus cities of Boston and New York for domestic and international traffic, with many of the routes coming through the Northeast Alliance.
All of the routes announced were released for sale on January 12, 2023.
The new routes…
As 2023 is now upon us, the major U.S. carrier JetBlue has released new routes for sale to multiple destinations across the United States and international borders.
Many of the new routes for JetBlue in this announcement were made possible through its Northeast Alliance with American Airlines. With the new routes being announced and available for booking, JetBlue will deliver more competition and unlock new choices for the customers in the airline’s New York and Boston focus cities.
Furthermore, JetBlue is also advancing its “focus city” strategy on the West Coast, by introducing an all-new international route from Los Angeles.
Dave Clark, head of revenue and planning at JetBlue, stated the following on the routes’ announcement:
“The Northeast Alliance continues to provide us with new opportunities to unlock even more growth potential in New York and Boston, with added benefits for customers across our network as we introduce new flying in markets where for too long travelers have had little or no competition,”
“At the same time, we’re introducing new flying elsewhere in our network to grow on the West Coast as part of our broader 2023 growth plans,” he adds.
Possible through the NEA…
With JetBlue’s new services in New York and Boston, a new choice consisting of many routes with limited competition, becomes available, all through the Northeast Alliance (NEA).
For the Northeast Alliance itself, the alliance will see more than 500 daily departures across the main three New York airports in 2023, along with nearly 200 daily departures from Boston.
Currently, the Northeast Alliance has stood for the creation of approximately 50 new routes from LaGuardia (LGA), John F. Kennedy (JFK), Newark (EWR), and Boston (BOS). The Northeast Alliance has also resulted in a frequency increase for more than 130 existing routes.
The route tables…
With JetBlue’s routes out of LaGuardia being announced, the services are as follows:
- LaGuardia (LGA) – Atlanta (ATL) – Launches May 5, 2023 – Daily
- LaGuardia (LGA) – Bermuda (BDA) – Launches May 5, 2023 – Daily (Summer seasonal)
- LaGuardia (LGA) – Hyannis (HYA) – Launches May 5, 2023 – Daily (Summer seasonal)
- LaGuardia (LGA) – Nassau (NAS) – Launches March 30, 2023 – Daily
As for JetBlue’s Newark announcement, the routes are as follows:
- Newark (EWR) – Aruba (AUA) – Launches June 15, 2023 – Saturdays only
- Newark (EWR) – Montego Bay (MBJ) – Launches June 15, 2023 – Daily (Summer seasonal)
Boston will also see a new route, being:
- Boston (BOS) – Vancouver (YVR) – Launches June 15, 2023 – Daily (Summer seasonal)
For the last route announcement focusing on JetBlue’s West Coast focus city, Los Angeles LAX will see a new international route:
- Los Angeles (LAX) – Puerto Vallarta (PVR) – Launches June 15, 2023 – Daily
It clearly appears that JetBlue is hard at work for a greater 2023 with route availability and what to some can appear as endless opportunities to the public. At the same time, it also appears that the Northeast Alliance is great to help with this expansion.
Just adding up to this network upgrade, JetBlue is also at work for a great transatlantic experience as the airline has now become a competitor in the transatlantic market, indicating that JetBlue is not going away from the competition anytime soon.
