JetBlue Announces SYR- BOS Service
Syracuse Hancock International Airport, Senator Schumer and JetBlue Airlines are pleased to announce that JetBlue will begin new daily nonstop service from Syracuse to Boston.
The service will be daily with flights beginning January 4, 2018 and will operate year round. Tickets went on sale today, with introductory fares starting at $59.00 one way, if booked by August 23, 2017.
JetBlue is the second airline operating nonstop service to Boston from Syracuse.
The decision follows a push from Senator Schumer for the airline to increase its low-cost service options for the passengers of Central New York.
“Today’s announcement is great news for Central New York passengers and businesses, and will allow JetBlue to build on their strong presence here in Upstate New York. There is a clear demand for more flights from Syracuse to Boston and I am pleased JetBlue examined this option and responded so positively to our calls. Hancock Airport is undergoing a rapid transformation and I am thrilled Jet Blue is taking advantage of that need for service. I will continue to work with airport officials to pursue other new flight options for area residents and businesses,” said U.S. Senate Minority Leader Charles E. Schumer.
“This is very exciting news for our region,” said Airport Director, Christina Callahan. “Air service development continues to be among the top priorities for the airport authority and to be included in JetBlue’ expansion plans is further proof of the continued growth and vitality of our airport and the region it serves.”
“We greatly appreciate Jet Blue’s latest vote of confidence in the central New York market. Senator Schumer continues to be a tireless partner and Jet Blue’s expanding service is a true investment in our collective future,” said Airport Authority Chair, Patrick Mannion.
“The region’s business community has expressed a desire for more service options to this important East Coast destination for years. Thanks to Senator Schumer and our REGIONAL airport authority, doing business in Central New York just got easier,” said CenterState CEO President, Robert Simpson.
