JetBlue Airways has begun its four-times daily service between Boston Logan and Newark Liberty, complementing its existing frequent daily service between Boston and New York JFK.
The new service, says JetBlue, will bring low-fare competition into a notoriously high-fare market. According to JetBlue, since it announced plans to serve the Boston–Newark market, the lowest walk-up fare has dropped by more than 75%.
"We’re excited to dramatically lower prices on this route by bringing our industry-leading product to the market and providing the great JetBlue service and product our customers have come to expect of us," said Dave Clark, Director of Network Planning. "Our exceptional product and low fares allow us to continue growing our position as Boston’s #1 carrier, serving more nonstop destinations and carrying more travelers than any other airline."
JetBlue’s Boston to Newark flights are being operated with 100-seat Embraer 190s which offer inflight entertainment with live DIRECTV and XM Satellite Radio programming at every seat.
