JetBlue plans to introduce a daily service between New York’s John F. Kennedy International Airport and Daytona Beach International Airport (DAB) from February 2016, creating a direct link between JetBlue's main base of operations in New York and Embry-Riddle Aeronautical University, which specialises in aviation and aerospace.
“We couldn't be more excited to launch yet another route that shows our deep commitment to Central Florida,” commented Scott Laurence, JetBlue's SVP airline planning. “We also have a long-standing relationship with Embry-Riddle Aeronautical University and are pleased to give the academic community there a new option for travel.”
In 2007, JetBlue partnered with Embry-Riddle to launch a ‘University Gateway Program’, creating a career path for aspiring aviators with the airline.
The JFK-DAB service will be operated on a 150-seat Airbus A320.
