NEW YORK--(BUSINESS WIRE)--JetBlue (NASDAQ: JBLU) today announced it is bringing its award-winning service and low fares to Minneapolis, which will become the airline’s 65th nonstop destination from Boston Logan International Airport. The addition further strengthens JetBlue as the leading airline in Boston, serving as Logan’s largest carrier in both number of flights and customers. The airline will operate three daily roundtrip flights between Minneapolis–Saint Paul International Airport (MSP) and Boston Logan starting May 3, 2018. Minneapolis is the largest domestic market not served by JetBlue and seats are on sale today starting at $89 one way (a).
“As the largest airline in Boston we are answering calls from our customers who have long asked us to offer our great service and low fares on this important route,” said John Checketts, vice president network planning, JetBlue. “And adding Minneapolis–Saint Paul to our map will give Twin Cities travelers a refreshing new choice in the air with JetBlue’s long list of perks not matched by any other airline in the market.”
Minneapolis–Saint Paul attracts more than 30 million visitors annually and is home to more than a dozen Fortune 500 companies. The Twin Cities also regularly receive top marks for jobs, education and quality of life among large American metropolitan areas. And Minneapolis–Saint Paul International Airport is a world-class facility, just 10 miles from both downtown Minneapolis and downtown Saint Paul, which handles nearly 40 million travelers each year.
“We have been pursuing air service from JetBlue for several years and couldn’t be more pleased with their decision to add Minneapolis–Saint Paul International Airport to their route map in 2018,” said Brian Ryks, executive director and CEO of the Metropolitan Airports Commission. “With this service, travelers can connect on JetBlue in Boston to 60 other cities in the United States and Caribbean.”
JetBlue is Boston’s largest airline, with up to 150 daily departures. In addition to the new nonstop choice for flights to Boston, Minneapolis travelers will also benefit from convenient connections to popular JetBlue destinations across the U.S. and throughout the Caribbean and Latin America. Additionally, JetBlue customers can take advantage of the airline’s more than a dozen partnerships with international carriers – such as Emirates, El Al, Aer Lingus, Etihad, Qatar and Cape Air – offering destinations around the world.
“We are always looking to provide more options to our customers and this new flight provides just that,” said Massport CEO Thomas P. Glynn. “JetBlue has been a terrific partner for Logan Airport and we look forward to seeing this new service to Minneapolis–Saint Paul take off.”
