JetBlue moves in on Atlanta

Competition on one of the top business routes in the US, between Boston and Atlanta, stepped up on Thursday as JetBlue launched a five-times-daily Airbus A320 service.

Atlanta was the largest US city not already served by the airline and becomes JetBlue’s 101st destination and the 63rd non-stop from Boston, where it is the largest carrier after recently reaching 150 daily flights.

Sales vice-president Dave Clark said: “Atlanta travellers for too long have faced high fares and limited choices. It is one of our most-requested destinations and we’re excited to show why JetBlue is a favourite for passengers in the 100 other cities we serve.”

The addition of the non-stop Atlanta service is part of JetBlue’s plan to reach 200 daily flights at Boston’s Logan Airport in the coming years. The company is also prominent in New York, Fort Lauderdale-Hollywood, Los Angeles Long Beach, Orlando, and San Juan and operates an average 1,000 daily flights.

JetBlue’s A320s feature what it claims is the most legroom in Economy Class, all reserved seating, free and unlimited name-brand snacks, 36 channels of programmes on seatback TVs and free high-speed internet.
