JetBlue becomes the number one carrier from the US to Havana

Posted: 12-Jul-18 06:47

With its new Boston service and expanded flights in South Florida, JetBlue now serves Havana from more US cities than any other airline. As the first airline to operate commercial service between the US and Cuba in over 50 years, this expansion in its flight schedule ensures the carrier will stay at the top.

JetBlue becomes the number one carrier from the US to Havana

JetBlue has announced that it will expand and diversify its flight schedule to Havana, now offering a new service from Boston, and more flights from Fort Lauderdale.

With non-stop flights to Havana from New England and South Florida, as well as its existing nonstop service from New York and Orlando, JetBlue is at the top of the list for the number of commercial flights offered between the US and Havana.

“As the first airline to operate commercial service between the U.S. and Cuba, we are proud to celebrate another first as the only carrier to serve Havana from Boston while also growing our successful service in Fort Lauderdale.”

Explained John Checketts, JetBlue’s vice president network planning. Mr. Checketts, continued:

“JetBlue will operate more than 50 weekly flights between the U.S. and Cuba from every one of our east coast focus cities.”

From November 10, 2018, JetBlue will offer a Saturday service between Boston Logan International Airport (BOS) and Havana’s Jose Marti International Airport (HAV). This is a hard-won route, as JetBlue has been seeking a nonstop route between Boston and Havana since 2016. With over 120 institutions of higher education and more university students per capita than most other cities in the world, Boston is an ideal location for a nonstop service to sunny Cuba.

On top of this, JetBlue’s additional flights between Fort Lauderdale and Havana will operate Sunday through Friday, with up to three flights each day. JetBlue also serves three other Cuban cities with daily service from Fort Lauderdale, namely Santa Clara – Abel Santamaría Airport (SNU), Camagüey – Ignacio Agramonte Airport (CMW) and Holguín – Frank País Airport (HOG).

JetBlue is also keen to offer convenient solutions to Cubans as well. In September 2017, the carrier opened a City Ticket Office and an Airport Ticket Office in Havana, allowing Cubans to book travel on JetBlue with ease. Having built strong relationships with airport authorities, JetBlue’s successful commercial service seems set to flourish.
