JetBlue Airways joins Allegiant Air on Syracuse-Fort Lauderdale sector

JetBlue Airways New York JFK to Palm Springs

JetBlue Airways CEO Robin Hayes welcomed passengers on the carrier’s first flight to Fort Lauderdale from Syracuse on 13 January. The daily service will face competition from Allegiant Air.

“As a small hub airport handling nearly two million annual passengers, adding PSP to the JetBlue network for the direct New York service is a great compliment for this growing world renowned tourist destination,” said Thomas Nolan, Executive Director at Palm Springs Airport. JetBlue Airways started its five times weekly New York JFK service on 14 January.

  • JetBlue Airways added two new seasonal routes (both routes will be suspended on 1 May) over the last seven days, with new sector each from Fort Lauderdale (FLL) and New York JFK (JFK). The airline’s Floridian base, its third largest in terms of weekly seats, is now linked to Syracuse (SYR) in New York State with a daily E190 operation, while its biggest base at JFK (when measured by weekly capacity) is now connected to Palm Springs (PSP) in California on a five times weekly basis, utilising the airline’s A320 fleet. Launched on 13 January, the former route will face twice-weekly competition from Allegiant Air, while the latter city pair, which commenced on 14 January, will encounter resistance from the weekly service flown by incumbent Virgin America.
