JetBlue Airways’ Savannah to New York JFK
JetBlue’s services to Savannah Airport in Georgia were celebrated with this fabulous cake, a ribbon cutting ceremony by the area mayors, along with airport and business leaders on 13 February.
- JetBlue Airways, the US low-cost carrier, expanded its domestic network with two new services to Savannah, GA (SAV) on 13 February. The longer sector is the 1,450-kilometre service from Boston, MA (BOS) which is operated daily, and the shorter sector being the New York JFK, NY (JFK) service at 1,156-kilometre, which will be operated twice-daily. Both routes will be flown by the airline’s 100-seat E190s. JetBlue faces direct competition only on the new route from New York, from Delta Air Lines’ 13 weekly flights. Commenting on the route launches to Savannah, Greg Kelly, Executive Director, Savannah Airport Commission, said: “This is a wonderful and exciting day for Savannah, Hilton Head and the Coastal Empire. We welcome JetBlue to our airport and are looking forward to a great partnership that will strengthen our ability to support the economic development and tourism/convention efforts of the entire region.” Find out how Savannah Airport got on in this week’s “Arch of Triumph”.
