On Sunday (October 31, 2021), JetBlue announced the official launch of new service to and from San Antonio International Airport (SAT), with the first flights arriving from New York (JFK) and Boston (BOS) this afternoon.

In Sunday’s announcement, JetBlue’s Vice President of Network Planning, Andrea Lusso, said,


“The new service to San Antonio is an indicator of the growing demand between the southwest and the northeast and our customers’ return to the skies. With San Antonio being Boston’s largest unserved destination, we are excited to offer our customers traveling for business and leisure our award-winning service and an opportunity to explore the city’s rich history and cultural experiences.”

In addition, the compliment of New York-JFK service offers even more options between the two markets.”
