JetBlue is coming to Canada for the first time ever, beginning in the summer of 2022.
Scott Laurence, head of revenue and planning, JetBlue, said: “Almost since day one, both our customers and crew members have been asking us to add flights to the middle of the country and into Canada.”
Laurence continued: “We can’t wait to shake up the status quo in these markets currently dominated by high-fare carriers, and we look forward to introducing new customers to JetBlue favourites like live seat-back TV, free Wi-Fi, the most legroom in coach and great service from our friendly crew members.”
Launching in the summer of 2022, JetBlue will offer flights to Vancouver from
New York’s John F. Kennedy International Airport (JFK) and from Boston Logan International Airport (BOS) [seasonal].
Tamara Vrooman, President & CEO, Vancouver Airport Authority, said: “We’re delighted that JetBlue has selected Vancouver as its first Canadian destination with service from YVR to New York City and Boston.”
Vrooman continued: “As we move through the pandemic and prepare for a safe and healthy return to non-essential travel, this new service, scheduled for Summer 2022, gives us all something to look forward to.”
And she added: “By selecting YVR, JetBlue has signaled a vote of confidence in our region as a premier destination, and our airport as a trusted partner, that together will attract a mix of business and leisure travellers when the time is right to fly again.”
JetBlue’s plans to add Vancouver, along with six other new destinations, from New York and Boston has been enabled by its Northeast Alliance with American Airlines.
