JetBlue to Launch Flights to Martha*s Vineyard in 2011

EDGARTOWN, Mass., Dec. 23, 2010 /PRNewswire via COMTEX/ -- JetBlue Airways (Nasdaq: JBLU) today announced plans to expand its route map with daily service to Martha*s Vineyard, the historic New England summer colony, and the acclaimed airline*s 66th destination.

JetBlue plans to offer daily nonstop service between the Vineyard and its home at New York City*s John F. Kennedy International Airport from Memorial Day weekend through Labor Day weekend.

Known for its premium service, JetBlue has offered connections to Martha*s Vineyard through Boston since 2007 in cooperation with its local partner Cape Air. JetBlue*s new nonstop service will complement that year-round option and give a boost to tourism and business by making access to the island even easier during the peak season.

**We*re thrilled to be bringing JetBlue service to Martha*s Vineyard next summer,** said Dave Barger, JetBlue*s CEO, at a ceremony today at Martha*s Vineyard Airport. **With our nonstop flights to New York, connections nationwide, plus the top-notch service provided by our crewmembers, we think this new route will be a big win for islanders and summer residents alike.**

JetBlue*s flights will be operated with its quiet and fuel efficient 100-seat Embraer 190 aircraft - the only full-size jet service to the Vineyard, and the only to offer in-flight entertainment with live DIRECTV(R) and XM Satellite Radio programming at every seat. The spacious E190 offers all-leather seating, industry-leading legroom, as well as unlimited free snacks and drinks served up by JetBlue*s friendly, award-winning crewmembers.

In addition to direct access to New York City, Vineyard travelers have access to scores of onward JetBlue destinations via JFK Airport including Charlotte, Chicago, Los Angeles, Palm Beach, Pittsburgh, Raleigh, San Francisco, and Washington, D.C.

Schedules and fares for JetBlue*s new service will be available in January.

**We*re so excited that JetBlue is launching service direct from New York City to the Vineyard this spring,** said Nancy Gardella, Executive Director of the Martha*s Vineyard Chamber of Commerce. **This service will have a wonderful impact on the number of people from around the world who will be able to reach Martha*s Vineyard and enjoy all its beauty. JetBlue has given an enormous boost to the tourist-based economy of the island.**

**For 20 years Martha*s Vineyard passengers have enjoyed Cape Air*s MOCHA HAGoTDI** brand of service,** noted Cape Air CEO Dan Wolf. **We look forward to continue working with our partner, JetBlue, who offers that same level of service and singular company culture, along with nationwide connections to the Vineyard all year-round.**

JetBlue also serves neighboring Nantucket during the summer season and in cooperation with Cape Air, provides connections from Boston to Hyannis and Provincetown, Mass., making travel to Cape Cod and the Islands a breeze all year long. With frequent jet service to Boston; Burlington, Vt.; Hartford, Conn.; and Portland, Maine, JetBlue is among the largest air carriers in New England.

*JetBlue codeshare service between Boston and Hyannis, Martha*s Vineyard, Nantucket and Provincetown is operated by Cape Air.

** MOCHA HAGoTDI - Make our Customers Happy and Have a Good Time Doing It.
