Between 14 January, 2016, and 1 May, 2016, JetBlue Airways will operate five-times weekly flights between New York's John F. Kennedy International Airport (JFK) and Palm Springs International Airport (PSP) using an Airbus A320 aircraft.
The seasonal service will take place daily from Thursday through Monday throughout the winter months, with Palm Springs becoming JetBlue's ninth destination in the Golden State. Flights will leave New York at 19:45, landing in Palm Springs for 22:56. On the return leg, the service will take off from Palm Springs at 23:49, arriving back in New York for 07:43 (+1).
“With direct service to Palm Springs five days a week, winter-weary East Coasters can escape to this desert getaway with 350 days of sunshine easier than ever before,” remarked Dave Clark, vice president of network planning at JetBlue. “Palm Springs' re-emergence as a destination and the area's nationally recognised events like Coachella make it the perfect addition to our transcontinental route map.”
The greater Palm Springs area includes Joshua Tree National Park and the San Jacinto Mountains.
