JetBlue is expanding and diversifying its flying schedule in Havana with new service from Boston and more flights from Fort Lauderdale. New England and South Florida nonstop service, combined with JetBlue’s existing nonstop service from New York and Orlando, means JetBlue will link Cuba’s capital with four American cities – more than any other U.S. airline.
New England Nonstop
Starting November 10, 2018, 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. Seats are on sale today with an introductory fare of$129 one way (a).
JetBlue has sought a nonstop route between Boston and Havana since first applying for commercial service to Cubain 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.
The new service also benefits customers in a number of other JetBlue cities – including Detroit, Cleveland and Pittsburgh – where travelers will benefit from new connecting options which make Havana just one stop away from home.
Havana will be the 68th destination served from Boston and the 17th international city. No other airline serves as many domestic or international cities at Logan. The added flights at Logan advance JetBlue’s plan to grow its leadership position in Boston. The airline plans to reach 200 daily flights in the coming years and already operates more than 150 daily flights.
Strengthening South Florida
JetBlue will also add an additional flight between its Fort Lauderdale focus city and Havana which will operate Sunday through Friday. The airline will now operate up to three daily flights between South Florida and Cuba’s capital city. JetBlue’s Cuba service in the Sunshine State provides convenient nonstop service to communities throughout the greater Fort Lauderdale and Miami areas. The added flight will also offer a new afternoon departure from Fort Lauderdale and a new evening flight from Havana.
