JetBlue launches Daytona Beach service

JetBlue (NASDAQ: JBLU) has launched flights between New York´s John F. Kennedy International Airport (JFK) and Daytona Beach International Airport (DAB), the company said.

JetBlue now serves eight Florida destinations and offers more flights between the Empire State and the Sunshine State than any other airline, with up to 83 daily non-stops.

Flights operate daily and provide the only non-stop service between Daytona Beach and New York City. Customers traveling to JetBlue´s home at JFK´s T5 can also take advantage of convenient connections to many other JetBlue cities as well as international destinations offered by some of JetBlue´s more than 40 airline partners.

More than half a million travelers pass through Daytona Beach International Airport annually, which offers easy access to the variety of artistic, cultural, and action-packed activities that make Florida´s east central coast a top destination for visitors. The airport also features a growing list of shops and dining option as well as complimentary Wi-Fi throughout the terminals.

The new service to Daytona Beach will create a direct link between JetBlue´s main base of operations in New York and Embry-Riddle Aeronautical University, the world´s largest, fully accredited university specializing in aviation and aerospace. In 2007, JetBlue partnered with Embry-Riddle to launch the University Gateway Program, a unique opportunity that creates a path to a career with the airline for aspiring aviators.

JetBlue is New York´s Hometown Airlineâ„¢, and a leading carrier in Boston, Fort Lauderdale-Hollywood, Los Angeles (Long Beach), Orlando, and San Juan. JetBlue carries more than 32 million customers a year to 94 cities in the US, Caribbean, and Latin America with an average of 900 daily flights.
