jetBlue coming to CLE!

December 15, 2014

The home of Rock & Roll finally has the Blues! Cleveland Hopkins International Airport (CLE) is excited to announce the arrival of JetBlue Airways to Cleveland. JetBlue Airways, a low-cost carrier, gives passengers of CLE more options when choosing how to get to their destination. 

“We couldn’t be happier to bring JetBlue to Northeast Ohio passengers,” said Airport Director Ricky Smith.  “JetBlue is yet another low cost option for dedicated passengers and continues to establish CLE as a low fare airport.  We thank JetBlue for their confidence in Cleveland.”

Service from JetBlue will begin on April 30th, 2015 with nonstop service twice daily to Boston Logan Airport (BOS).  Tentatively, the flight will leave BOS for CLE at 6:45AM and arrive at CLE at 8:50AM, then depart CLE at 9:30AM and arrive at BOS at 11:20AM. The second flight will leave BOS at 4:10PM and arrive at CLE at 6:15PM, then depart CLE at 7:55PM and arrive at BOS at 8:45PM. The routes will be flown on a 100 seat E190 aircraft.

Cleveland’s air service market place is more open and competitive than ever. Despite recent fluctuation in air service, this announcement is a strong signal of the market’s healthy demand for air service.

“Over the last few years, we have positioned the airport as a place to do business and make CLE the airport of choice,” said Cleveland Mayor Frank Jackson. “JetBlue’s announcement today shows the confidence it has in Cleveland, the people and the region.”
 
"We can’t wait to bring our low fares to Clevelanders, starting with a route that is currently suffering from extremely high fares. Travelers in Northeast Ohio will soon get to experience our superior customer offering that includes the most legroom in coach, personal screens in every seat with live TV, unlimited snacks and sodas, and great service offered by JetBlue’s award-winning crewmembers. JetBlue looks forward to adding Cleveland to our route network and we see a bright future in this market,” said Dave Clark, vice president, network planning, JetBlue.
