JetBlue to Add Four Daily Nonstop Routes From Hartford, Connecticut From November 19, 2020
JetBlue announced on Tuesday plans to add four nonstop routes from Hartford’s Bradley International Airport in Connecticut from November 19, 2020. The new routes include service to Cancún, Los Angeles, Las Vegas and San Francisco.
On Tuesday (September 22, 2020), JetBlue announced an expansion of service from Bradley International Airport (BDL) in Hartford, Connecticut starting November 19, 2020. The carrier will add four new nonstop routes with service to Cancún, Los Angeles, Las Vegas and San Francisco. The added service is part of JetBlue’s strategy to offer routes with a high potential for leisure demand and will solidify the carrier’s leadership position in Connecticut by 2021. Last week the state of Connecticut simplified their travel restrictions, allowing visiting or returning travelers to avoid a mandatory 14-day quarantine by providing a negative COVID-19 test result obtained within 72 hours prior to arrival. In Tuesday’s announcement, JetBlue’s Head of Revenue and Planning, Scott Laurence, said,
“We are excited to roll out these new routes connecting Hartford to some of our largest leisure destinations, bringing more low fares and great service to Connecticut residents. We are proud to play our part in support of Gov. Lamont’s economic recovery plan. We see great long-term potential for our business in Connecticut, as it becomes an increasingly attractive place to live and work. Additionally, the simplified travel advisory gives clarity to everyone who needs or wants to travel through Bradley International Airport.”
Prior to the pandemic, JetBlue built up a sizable presence in Hartford with up to 12 daily flights. With the new routes, the airline will offer more nonstop destinations from Bradley International Airport than any competing carrier. JetBlue will reactivate several parked aircraft in anticipation of the new routes.
