— Albuquerque is JetBlue’s 77th destination —
JetBlue Airways (Nasdaq: JBLU), New York’s Hometown Airline™, today launched New York’s only nonstop service to the vibrant city of Albuquerque. Dave Barger, JetBlue’s President and CEO, was joined today by Albuquerque Mayor Richard Berry during the inaugural flight’s departure ceremony at Kennedy International Airport.
Albuquerque is JetBlue’s first destination in New Mexico, the Land of Enchantment, and is the 77th destination served in the airline’s growing route network. To celebrate, today through Wednesday, April 24, 2013 customers can book flights between New York and Albuquerque for as low as $99 one way at www.jetblue.com/new (a). The special fares are available for travel between May 29 and June 26, 2013.
“Today we’re happy to announce that JetBlue now serves Albuquerque International with the only daily nonstop service to the New York Metro Area,” said Dave Barger during the event. “We know that Albuquerque is one of the nation’s top leisure destinations, with a rich offering of outdoor activities, festivals and art. “It’s also important to note that Albuquerque was, until today, the largest market from New York without nonstop air service! When you take all that into consideration, it makes absolute sense for JetBlue to fly here.”
“This is a huge step for Albuquerque that will add to our opportunities for business and leisure travel. New York City is the largest market in the country and we now have non-stop service. This will make us more business, convention and tourist friendly, which is good news for us all,” Mayor Berry said. “JetBlue is a tremendous company and the city looks forward to a long-term partnership and additional growth opportunities with the airline.”
