JetBlue operates with over 900 daily flights from airports in ‘focus cities’ such as Los Angeles, Boston and New York. Regarding itself as New York’s Hometown Airline, JetBlue has shown a steady development since its debut in 2000. This newest connection between Boston and London’s biggest airport seems like a beneficial move in their growth and we are curious to see what destinations JetBlue expands toward in the future.
