Earlier this summer, we wrote about rumblings of this airline returning to Atlanta, and it seems like they are now true.
JetBlue Airways announced that they would be launching service to Atlanta starting on March 30, 2017. The new service will intially be offered from Boston to Atlanta, however expect to see Fort Lauderdale, New York JFK, and Orlando follow shortly with non-stop service as well.
Per JetBlue Airways,
JetBlue today announced plans to grow its Boston focus city by more than 40 percent to 200 peak day departures, including the launch of its 63rd nonstop destination, Atlanta. The new route sets in motion the airline’s plan to further expand its leadership position in Boston, where it is already the largest airline.
Service between Boston Logan International Airport (BOS) and Hartsfield–Jackson Atlanta International Airport (ATL) will begin March 30, 2017. To celebrate JetBlue’s 63rd nonstop destination from Boston – the most destinations of any airline at Boston Logan – JetBlue is launching with an introductory one-way fare of $47 (a) available starting today.
JetBlue will bring its recipe of low fares and award-winning service to four routes from Atlanta, a city that is dominated by two of the Big Four airlines. In addition to Boston-Atlanta flights, JetBlue also intends to add service between Atlanta and its focus cities of Fort Lauderdale-Hollywood, New York JFK, and Orlando.
To celebrate the launch, the airline is offering fares from just $47 each way, on all 5 daily non stops flights between Boston and Atlanta. I couldn’t be happier with this latest addition to Atlanta, as it will put a lot of pressure on Delta when it comes to fares.
