Looking to take JetBlue from Boston to Atlanta to check out the sights? In the past that would be a no-go, but now you can do just that because JetBlue has rolled out non-stop service to Atlanta. Up until this point Atlanta was the biggest U.S. city that was not served by the carrier.
The inaugural flight heading out from Logan International Airport (BOS) in Boston, to Hartsfield–Jackson Atlanta International Airport (ATL) also made Atlanta the 101st destination it flies to. They will be flying this route five times a day.
JetBlue sees this as a win for them and their customers-and Atlanta is excited too.
“With this new route from JetBlue, Boston’s business and leisure travelers can now connect to the South’s largest metropolitan area and a state that boasts a myriad of travel opportunities from the mountains to the coast,” said Kevin Langston, Deputy Commissioner of Tourism at the Georgia Department of Economic Development. “We look forward to welcoming JetBlue passengers to Atlanta and Georgia, and showcasing all that our state has to offer while providing a true taste of southern hospitality.”
Along with their inaugural flight, the JetBlue For Good volunteers and crew members headed to the College Park Elementary School, along with staff from Hartsfield–Jackson Atlanta International Airport and College Park Mayor Jack Longino.
There they not only read to 150 first graders, but also donated 500 books for children, which meant that the kids were able to take home a book with them so they could get a head start on building their own personal libraries.
JetBlue’s Boston Connection
With the addition of this new route, Atlanta has become the carriers 63rd nonstop destination heading out from Boston, which is JetBlue’s focus city. The carrier is also the largest airline at Logan, from which they now send 150 flights out everyday. This is all part of JetBlue’s master plan of ultimately flying out 200 flights every day from Logan over the coming years.
They will be flying JetBlue’s Airbus A320 aircraft on this route, featuring the usual bells and whistles, which come along with JetBlue’s flights, including free unlimited name-brand snacks, SIRIUSXM radio, live DIRECTV programming, and free Fly-Fi high-speed wireless Internet.
