To mark 15 years of service at Long Beach, JetBlue is adding a new four-times daily route from the destination to San Jose on 4 January 2017.
The first flights of the day will take off from Long Beach Airport (LGB) at 07:00 to arrive at San Jose International Airport (SJC) for 08:20. The second, third and fourth LGB–SJC legs will take off at 11:04, 16:40 and 19:48; landing at 12:23, 17:59 and 21:08 respectively.
The flights between SJC and LGB will depart the former airport at 06:55, 09:01, 13:09 and 18:45 each day, reaching the latter airport at 08:13, 10:18, 14:27 and 20:02 respectively.
From November, JetBlue will also increase the frequency of its flights from Long Beach to Las Vegas, San Francisco and Salt Lake City. The carrier plans to add three additional daily flights to Las Vegas’ McCarran International Airport and one additional flight per day to both San Francisco International Airport and Salt Lake City International Airport.
Together, the new route and added frequencies will utilise all JetBlue’s slots at Long Beach Airport and add nine new daily departures. JetBlue is already the largest airline at Long Beach, but will now offer more flights than ever before with up to 35 daily departures in total.
“We want to give our customers in Long Beach even more JetBlue love by offering our award-winning service on more routes to more destinations throughout the west,” averred Dave Clark, VP network planning, JetBlue. “Since landing in Long Beach in 2001, our customers have come to expect nothing but the best when they fly and we can’t wait to welcome them aboard these new flights.”
JetBlue has also announced it will offer year-round service between Fort Lauderdale-Hollywood International Airport (FLL) and Buffalo Niagara International Airport (BUF). Currently JetBlue offers winter seasonal service between the two cities.
