You’ll soon have many more opportunities to travel between New York City and Boston. JetBlue Airways said it will add six daily flights between New York City’s LaGuardia Airport and Boston’s Logan International Airport.

JetBlue To Add Flights Between New York City and Boston

“Increased competition in the congested New York market opens the door to better service and lower fares for our hometown New York customers,” said Robin Hayes, president and chief executive officer, JetBlue. “The FAA’s decision to ease slot restrictions at Newark allows us to bring more low-fare, award-winning service to Newark, and clears the way for a long overdue alternative between LaGuardia and Boston for those who have been priced out of air travel and onto the roads and rails by high-fare legacy carriers.”

Sales for the new routes began on Thursday. The airline said prices started at $49 each way. The new routes will begin flying on October 31, 2016.

If you would rather fly JetBlue Airways out of New Jersey, you are in luck. The airline also announced routes from Newark’s Liberty International Airport to these destinations:

  • Fort Lauderdale-Hollywood International Airport
  • Orlando International Airport
  • Tampa International Airport
  • Palm Beach International Airport
  • Fort Myers’ Southwest Florida International Airport

Following these additions, JetBlue will maintain 30 flights a day through Newark. The flights began on October 31, 2016, but sales start on May 1, 2016. JetBlue has a New York hub at John F. Kennedy International Airport.
