JetBlue appears poised to announce the launch of service between Bradley Airport near Hartford, CT and destinations in Florida, including Ft. Lauderdale and Orlando. The service is expected to launch in mid-November. The carrier has not made the announcement official yet but there have been reports that such service was under consideration and early on Saturday morning the new routes were briefly displayed on www.Jetblue.com. Also, the airline has a ferry flight scheduled to depart JFK for Bradley this afternoon, likely for the announcement. Service is expected to be twice daily to each destination with connections onward to the Caribbean and Latin America based on the schedules from the website.
Always good to see new service starting up. Hopefully it is successful.
UPDATE (3pm EDT 19 April): Now official based on the press release from JetBlue. Two aircraft involved with an alternating routing (one goes BDL-FLL-BDL-MCO-BDL and the other does MCO first and then FLL) based on the schedules.
