JetBlue Makes Detroit its 85th BlueCity With New Service To Boston*s Logan Airport

BOSTON, Oct. 15, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- JetBlue Airways (Nasdaq: JBLU) today announced that Detroit will become its 85th destination in the Americas, with new nonstop flights to Boston Logan Airport beginning March 10, 2014. Detroitbecomes JetBlue*s 51st nonstop destination from Boston and the newest business market served.

JetBlue will serve the Boston-Detroit route three times daily, operated with its 100-seat Embraer 190 aircraft. From now through October 17, 2013, flights from Boston to Detroit are out for sale from $85 one way (a) for travel March 10, 2014 toMay 22, 2014 (blackout dates April 17-28). JetBlue serves 22 of the top 25 destinations where Bostonians travel. .

**This is a great day for Detroit, as we bring new competitive fares and award-winning service to the Motor City,** said JetBlue CEO Dave Barger, a Detroit native. **We wanted to bring more competition to the Boston-Detroit market, adding to the great baseball series between the Detroit Tigers and Boston Red Sox, and last night*s Detroit-Boston NHL game.** .

**This route is an important addition not only to Boston business travelers, but also to international passengers connecting in Boston on our alliance partner Emirates,** said JetBlue vice president network planning Scott Laurence. JetBlue partner Emirates will begin operating Dubai-Boston nonstop the same day as JetBlue*s launch. .

**JetBlue*s sleek, comfortable jets will feel right at home pulling-up to our bright blue jet bridges at Detroit Metro Airport*s new North Terminal,** said Wayne County Airport Authority CEO Tom Naughton. **We*re excited to welcome JetBlue toDetroit and to offer customers a new option not only to Boston, but to the Middle East and India via Emirates.** .

JetBlue has been cited by an independent study from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology as the airline that lowers fares the most when it begins service in a new market, as measured by fares during the 2007-2012 timeframe. JetBlue,MIT says, lowers fares $32 one way on average, or $64 on a roundtrip fare. .

From Detroit, Boston is a top destination and the second-biggest market without low-fare service. The two cities have strong ties primarily in the academic and research and development sectors. Detroit is also home to the largest Arab-American community and a sizeable Indian population, making JetBlue*s partnership with Emirates particularly valuable to Detroit travelers. .

**JetBlue offers passengers outstanding service and great fares and we congratulate them on launching their 51st nonstop destination from Boston Logan and their continued growth at the airport,** said Massport CEO Thomas P. Glynn. **When JetBlue started here in 2004, they had 30 employees based in Boston; today they have more than 2,500.**
