JetBlue Announces A Lot More Flights From Fort Lauderdale-Hollywood International Airport
Travelers, rejoice. There will soon be more flight options from Fort Lauderdale-Hollywood International Airport (FLL).
On Wednesday, JetBlue announced it will be operating an average of 140 daily flights out of FLL during the winter in the coming years. Currently, the airline is averaging 80 flights per day from the South Florida airport during that time, an airline representative said.
The expansion includes the addition of nonstop service to Louis Armstrong New Orleans International Airport beginning Sept. 29. In addition, flights to Lynden Pindling International Airport in Nassau, Bahamas, will increase from three per day to five per day beginning Aug. 1.
The airline, which now expects to provide nonstop service from FLL to 46 destinations, said it would announce more flights to other cities later this year.
“The Broward County Aviation Department is elated that JetBlue is making such a huge commitment to our community with their proposed increases in service to benefit travelers in and out of FLL,” Kent George, director of aviation at Fort Lauderdale-Hollywood International Airport, said in a release.
To celebrate the news, JetBlue will be offering $49 one-way flights between Fort Lauderdale and New Orleans during the first month of service. Tickets must be booked by 11:59 p.m. on March 10.
