JetBlue adds service to Cuba

JetBlue has announced it has expanded and diversified flights to Havana, Cuba with new service from Boston and Fort Lauderdale, the company said.

The airline is adding nonstop service from New England and South Florida, combined with JetBlue´s existing nonstop service from New York and Orlando, linking Havana with four US cities.

Starting Nov. 10, JetBlue will operate Saturday service between Boston Logan International Airport (BOS) and Havana´s Jose Marti International Airport (HAV). JetBlue, already the leading airline at Logan, will be the only carrier to offer nonstop service between New England and Cuba.

JetBlue has sought a nonstop route between Boston and Havana since first applying for commercial service to Cuba in 2016. Boston has over 120 institutions of higher education and more university students per capita than most other cities in the world. These educational institutions, as well as the healthcare and biotechnology companies located in the greater Boston area will benefit from the new, once-weekly service.

JetBlue is New York´s Hometown Airline®, and a leading carrier in Boston, Fort Lauderdale – Hollywood, Los Angeles (Long Beach), Orlando, and San Juan. JetBlue carries more than 40 million customers a year to 102 cities in the U.S., Caribbean, and Latin America with an average of 1,000 daily flights.
