JetBlue has officially launched service from New York’s John F. Kennedy International Airport (JFK) to Vancouver International Airport (YVR), with the first flight arriving in British Columbia last night (June 9).
With daily nonstop flights from New York, JetBlue continues to advance its transcontinental growth strategy while introducing low fares to new customers in Canada.
Strengthening JetBlue’s Northeast Alliance (NEA), Vancouver service brings JetBlue to its first destination in Canada, while diversifying its New York focus city strategy.
JetBlue also becomes the only airline to serve Vancouver with nonstop service from New York-JFK.
Vancouver is one of more than half a dozen new cities recently added to JetBlue’s route map.
And the carrier continues to grow beyond the U.S. with more than 30 international destinations in more than two dozen countries.
In 2022, the NEA will offer nearly 500 daily departures from New York’s three major airports.
“The addition of Vancouver to our route map marks an important milestone for JetBlue as our first Canadian destination,” said Andrea Lusso, vice president of network planning, JetBlue. “We look forward to not only introducing our outstanding service and competitive fares to Canadian customers but also providing access to all the cities we serve from New York.”
