JetBlue launches Tampa to Richmond
JetBlue began Richmond – Tampa on 19 November, its second route – along with Cancun – to begin that winter day.
Perhaps surprisingly given pre-stimulated demand of 58,000 in 2018, Richmond – Tampa was first served this decade in August 2019 when Southwest started it. It operated until May 2020, soon after coronavirus began.
JetBlue will now serve the 1,164-kilometre market once-daily year-round using 100-seat Embraer 190s.
Although currently only bookable until 7 September 2021, next year will have currently have 47,400 seats, over three times more than in 2019.
