Massport and JetBlue announce the restart of the daily, nonstop flights between Worcester Regional Airport (ORH) and New York (JFK) this August. A second daily flight will be added to JFK, as well as daily, nonstop service between Worcester and Ft. Lauderdale-Hollywood International Airport (FLL) in October. JetBlue is the first commercial airline to resume service at Worcester Regional, which is marking its 75th anniversary this year.
“While the pandemic stalled air travel here in Worcester and across the country, today’s announcement from JetBlue is a clear indication that Worcester Regional Airport is open for business and on the rebound,” said Congressman McGovern. “Great cities thrive on great airports. They connect us to the world and unlock unlimited new potential for our entire region. That’s why Congress stepped up to provide help for airports like Worcester Regional through Coronavirus relief legislation – and it’s why Massport continued to make major investments in ORH even during the pandemic. I am positively thrilled to welcome JetBlue back to Worcester Regional Airport.”
“Our administration is pleased to celebrate the return of commercial air service to Worcester Regional Airport,” said Lt. Governor Karyn Polito. “We are grateful to Massport and JetBlue for their partnership in making this announcement possible, and look forward to the airport playing a key role in supporting economic recovery and growth across the region in the years to come.”
“Our resumption of service in Worcester is just another example of JetBlue’s ongoing commitment to customers in the community and Central Massachusetts,” said Joanna Geraghty, president and chief operating officer, JetBlue. “We are thrilled to bring back our low fares and award-winning service to these new routes, and connect more travelers to JetBlue’s growing network in the Americas and beyond.”
JetBlue’s home at JFK’s Terminal 5 provides customers from Worcester and Central Massachusetts with convenient connections to more than 70 domestic and international destinations across the U.S., South America, the Caribbean, Mexico, and, soon, London. The first flight from JFK to Worcester will arrive on August 19th. The first flight from Worcester will depart August 20th. Tickets are now on sale.
