Apparently increasing service from Boston by 30% next summer just wasn’t enough for jetBlue. They announced today even more flights from Logan, further increasing their role as the dominant carrier there. The flights announced today focus on the Caribbean markets, a region that jetBlue has been focusing heavily on as it seems to have much higher yields than the transcon markets that many of their competitors are fighting over.
The destinations and frequencies being increased include:
- Three additional weekly flights to Aruba (for a total of five)
- Two additional weekly flights to Cancun (for a total of three)
- One additional weekly flight to San Juan, Puerto Rico (for a total of 11)
- One additional weekly flight to Montego Bay, Jamaica (for a total of two) (a)
- Daily flights to Bermuda (total of 7 weekly)
- Daily flights to Santo Domingo, Dominican Republic (total of 7 weekly)
The new service will start May 3, 2010 and all routes will be served year-round. That’s a lot of frequencies to be adding without acquiring any new planes. It will be interesting to hear what routes or frequencies are being cut to facilitate this.
Happy jetting, Boston!
