JetBlue jets into Raleigh Durham from Tampa
JetBlue took off from Tampa to Raleigh Durham on 11 February.
The route, some 945 kilometres, operates five-weekly using Embraer 190s. It’ll reduce to three-weekly in March, before a once-daily service is offered from April onwards.
JetBlue currently competes directly with Delta’s 19-weekly offering, which will increase up to 21-weekly in the coming weeks.
Southwest, meanwhile, will return on a Saturday-only basis from mid-March, growing to once-daily from April.
This winter, JetBlue has 13 routes from Tampa (up from six YOY) and 15 from Raleigh Durham (three).
