JetBlue Announces Major Expansion at Fort Lauderdale-Hollywood


JetBlue today announced it is further growing its presence at Fort Lauderdale-Hollywood International Airport (FLL) with plans to operate an average of 140 daily flights in the winter in the coming years. The expansion will result in roughly 75 percent growth from the carrier’s current size at the  South Florida airport.

Adding New Orleans and Nassau

As part of JetBlue’s ongoing expansion the airline is adding new nonstop service to Louis Armstrong New Orleans International Airport (MSY) and increasing the number of flights to Nassau, Bahamas’ Lynden Pindling International Airport (NAS). The airline will now operate nonstop flights to 46 destinations from Fort Lauderdale-Hollywood. More flights and new nonstop destinations are set to be announced later this year.

“We are absolutely thrilled to announce the next phase of our growth at Fort Lauderdale-Hollywood International Airport,” said Marty St. George, executive vice president commercial and planning at JetBlue. “JetBlue is the number one airline in Fort Lauderdale not only because of our size, but also because we deliver the very best experience to our customers with our award-winning service and style. With things like assigned seating, unlimited free name-brand snacks and complimentary TVs and entertainment at every seat we have truly brought humanity back to air travel in South Florida.”

“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”, said Kent George, Director of Aviation at Fort Lauderdale-Hollywood International Airport.
