BOSTON, (rushprnews)May 2, 2007  — JetBlue Airways (Nasdaq:JBLU) continues to expand its presence at Logan International Airport with today’s launch of new low-fare service between Boston and Bermuda and Boston and Charlotte.
The award-winning low-fare, low-cost carrier will offer one daily flight to Charlotte Douglas International Airport year-round and one daily flight to Bermuda International Airport for the peak season through October 31.

Today’s flights are part of an ongoing expansion of service in Boston that has made JetBlue the fastest-growing airline at Logan International Airport. From its newly renovated home in Terminal C, JetBlue offers low-fare, high-frills service to 27 popular destinations in the United States, Aruba, the Bahamas, Bermuda, and Mexico. In addition, convenient connecting service operated by JetBlue’s marketing partner, Cape Air, is available through Boston for customers traveling to Martha’s Vineyard, Nantucket, Provincetown, and Hyannis, MA from most domestic JetBlue cities.

“This is an exciting time for our customers as we continue to add new service in Boston,” said JetBlue CEO and Founder David Neeleman. “Our customers love JetBlue’s award-winning friendly service and onboard amenities, including the most legroom in coach(a), comfy leather seats, and the most live entertainment options available on any airline. We look forward to serving customers with everyday affordable fares on our new routes to Bermuda and Charlotte.”
