JetBlue Airways has announced plans to add its 65th ‘BlueCity’ – Anchorage, Alaska – with seasonal daily nonstop service beginning on 26 May from Los Angeles Long Beach Airport to Ted Stevens Anchorage International Airport (ANC).
JetBlue will be the only airline to serve Anchorage from Long Beach, where it will also offer travellers a number of connections to cities across the United States.
"During the peak summer travel months, Anchorage is in high-demand for California residents and we are pleased to continue offering our Los Angeles, Long Beach, and Orange County customers more variety and more options to the places they want to go," remarked Scott Laurence, vice-president of route planning for JetBlue Airways.
Flights will depart Long Beach for Anchorage (ANC) at 19:40, arriving in Anchorage at 23:57. The return service will take off from Anchorage just over an hour later at 01:10 and will land at Long Beach at 07:33 (all times local). Airbus A320s will be used for the services.
