JetBlue today announced it is growing again in Connecticut and South Florida with new service between Hartford’s Bradley International Airport (BDL) and Miami International Airport (MIA) starting June 24, 2021. The new route further bolsters JetBlue’s position as the largest airline in Connecticut and expands flying in Miami where JetBlue first launched service just a month ago. Seats for the new flights are on sale starting today.
“Connecting customers in the Northeast and South Florida has been a hallmark of JetBlue’s success for more than 20 years and offering our award-winning service and low fares between Hartford and Miami means we can attract new customers and grow in both regions,” said Scott Laurence, head of revenue and planning, JetBlue. “We appreciate Governor Lamont’s leadership and focus on safely driving Connecticut’s recovery to benefit residents and visitors to the Nutmeg State.”
JetBlue has built a sizeable presence in Hartford in recent months. With new service to Miami, the airline will now offer Connecticut travelers nonstop flights to 11 destinations – more than any other airline at Bradley. As previously announced by Connecticut Governor Ned Lamont, beginning March 19, 2021, the state’s travel advisory will be modified from a requirement to recommended guidance – meaning testing and quarantines may be completed at the discretion of travelers.
“This is great news for both business and leisure travelers who utilize Bradley Airport,” Gov. Ned Lamont said. “Bradley International Airport is a vital asset for our region, serving as a convenient option for businesses and families, and seeing JetBlue commit to yet another route builds confidence in our residents and our economy. We are proud to see JetBlue expand at Bradley.”
