JetBlue has announced the introduction of 24 new routes on the flight list because, it says, the demand for leisure travel continues to grow.
Already in this segment, in terms of leisure travel, the company excels at capturing as many customers as possible and announces an increase in the next period. The largest markets will be in Newark, Los Angeles, Richmond, Virginia, Raleigh and North Carolina. All these cities are priority or secondary for the airline and are traditional hubs.
Most of the expansion is represented by international routes to Latin America and the Caribbean that accept American citizens. Apparently, this is a new trend for US airlines.
In terms of domestic routes, travel is oriented to sunny destinations that do not involve quarantine and where social distance is easier to maintain.
The aircraft model in the JetBlue fleet most used for leisure travel will be the Airbus A320, the airline being in the process of updating the in-flight entertainment system in this type of aircraft.
New reservations can be made from now until February 28, 2012, with potential free changes. This winter, JetBlue will fly between the following routes:
Between Newark and Oranjestad, Aruba – starting November 19, the flight will take place daily, competing with United Airlines on this route.
Between Newark and Cancun, Mexico – starting November 19, this race will take place twice a day, completing the existing New York-Cancun route.
Between Newark and Montego Bay, Jamaica – starting with November 19 JetBlue will perform this flight daily, completing the existing New York-Montego Bay route.
