JetBlue Expanding Florida Flight Service

Group Team

 JetBlue announced new service between Fort Lauderdale-Hollywood International Airport and Tallahassee International Airport, beginning in January 2024.

Once the completion of the carrier’s planned combination with Spirit Airlines, JetBlue expects to operate more than 250 flights a day at Fort Lauderdale-Hollywood by 2027 as part of an airport development plan by Broward County, Florida.

As part of the combined airline’s route map, JetBlue would offer flights to approximately 30 markets not currently served by either JetBlue or Spirit from Fort Lauderdale and add more flight frequencies to about 30 additional markets.

“As a customer-centric alternative to the high-fare legacy airline that dominates South Florida, we have achieved rapid growth in Fort Lauderdale and are ready to turbocharge further expansion once we combine with Spirit,” JetBlue CEO Robin Hayes said.

“You shouldn’t have to choose between a low fare and a great experience,” Hayes continued. “JetBlue offers both, and that’s why we are uniquely positioned to challenge the Big Four airlines and boost competition in Florida and across the country.”

From Fort Lauderdale, JetBlue and Spirit currently serve 66 of the top 100 markets available from Miami International Airport, a number that jumps to approximately 90 of the top 100 Miami markets upon expansion completion.

The airline also plans to launch service between Fort Lauderdale and Europe, as well as new routes to Antigua; Belize; Cincinnati; Liberia, Costa Rica; Minneapolis; Memphis; and Savannah, Georgia.

“On every level, more JetBlue flights to more destinations is going to be great for South Florida customers, and we welcome other low-cost carriers to join us in challenging the Big Four airlines who control around 80% of the U.S. market,” Hayes said.
