JetBlue announced last week that beginning on May 23, 2013, the airline is flying 5 daily nonstop flights from Philadelphia International Airport (PHL) to Boston Logan International Airport (BOS).
The airline, which operates 750 daily flights, is the 4th airline to introduce service at Philadelphia International Airport this year. Virgin America and Alaska Airlines inaugurated service to the West Coast back in the spring. In the summer, Spirit Airlines announced it is starting nonstop service from Philadelphia to Dallas-Fort Worth in April 2013.
Philadelphia International Airport CEO Mark Gale added: “JetBlue offers an exciting, customer-friendly experience to air travelers, and we are confident that the traveling public in the Philadelphia region will enthusiastically embrace JetBlue’s excellent service to Boston. This is yet another great option in low-cost airlines at PHL, helping to stimulate competition and promote lower fares.”
Philadelphia is the 78th city in the JetBlue network, which includes cities in the Caribbean and Central America as well as destinations from coast to coast.
To celebrate the new service, JetBlue has launched special introductory fares as low as $17.76 for travel May 23, 2013 thru June 19, 2013 that can be obtained by visiting www.jetblue.com.
