JetBlue Airways (Nasdaq: JBLU) is adding new service between San Jose's Mineta International Airport and Boston's Logan International, and adding a daytime flight between San Jose and New York's John F. Kennedy International Airport.
JetBlue will launch the new Boston daily nonstop service on May 3 and add its second daily nonstop flight between San Jose and JFK on June 17. JetBlue commenced service from San Jose in June 2004 with one daily flight to JFK.
The airline's regular one-way fares between San Jose and both Boston and New York range from $144* to $299*. However, JetBlue is offering a "Take 5" sale fare on these routes which starts from $85* each way. This sale fare requires a 5-day advance purchase, and must be bought at www.jetblue.com or by calling 1-800-JETBLUE by January 18, 2005. Travel must be completed by May 25, 2005. Customers should book early as seats are limited and may not be available on all flights.

"We're really excited to be adding two new services from San Jose less than a year after we launched our first daily roundtrip from there to JFK", said David Neeleman, JetBlue's Chairman and CEO. "In May, we're looking forward to connecting San Jose and Boston and then, in June, add a daytime flight to New York, giving our JFK-bound customers a choice of departure times."
