JetBlue plans to beef up its getaway routes in 2021, with four sunny new routes to be added to its schedule.
The airline announced this week that it will begin service to Miami, Key West, Guatemala City, and Los Cabos in the first half of 2021. The new destinations will be introduced as part of the airline’s 24 new nonstop routes planned for the new year.
The new routes will debut from February to June. Nine of the routes will be directly to the new destinations and the remaining 15 will link existing JetBlue cities with the new nonstop service.
Flights to Miami will begin Feb. 11, with nonstop daily service from New York JFK, Newark, Boston and Los Angeles. The Los Angeles flights will feature the airline’s Mint class cabin with lie-flat seating.
Key West flights will also begin Feb. 11 from New York JFK and Boston Logan. The route will operate seasonally, through April.
The Guatemala City flights were originally announced before the start of the pandemic and then put on hold. The route is expected to start on April 15, with daily service from New York JFK.
In mid-June, the airline will launch service to Mexico’s Los Cabos International Airport, with daily flights from New York JFK and Los Angeles.
JetBlue is introducing the new, warm-weather destinations in an effort to capture “traffic where the airline anticipates customer demand.”
“This year has pushed us to find new ways of operating our business and we’ve adapted at a pace we’ve never seen before, pivoting our network in response to changing customer demand,” Scott Laurence, JetBlue’s head of revenue and planning, said in a statement. “We’re continuing to play offense to bring in cash revenue and support our business recovery. These network additions help fine-tune our geography in ways that make sense in today’s market.”
The routes are already available for purchase on the JetBlue website.
