JetBlue Launches 52nd Non-Stop Route out of Boston, Service to Detroit Begins 
Celebratory Fares Available Today and Tomorrow Only, Starting at $79
One Way for Travel March 18 - May 22, 2014 (a) 
NEW YORK, NY  -- (Marketwired) -- 03/10/14 --  JetBlue Airways
(NASDAQ: JBLU) today added Detroit Metro Airport to its growing route
network. The airline now offers 52 non-stop routes and up to 128
daily departures out of Boston Logan International Airport, where
JetBlue is the largest carrier. To celebrate the new route, which
will be operated three times daily, flights between Boston and
Detroit are on sale starting at $79 one way (a) for travel on Mondays
- Thursdays and Saturdays between March 18 and May 22, 2014 (blackout
dates April 10 to April 28, 2014). Tickets must be purchased by
midnight tomorrow, March 11. 7-day advance purchase required. 
"Today we strengthen our offering from Boston, while also bringing
our low fares and award-winning service to Detroit and one of the
most overpriced markets in the U.S.," said Dave Barger, JetBlue's
CEO. "Detroit is also home to the largest Arab community in America
and we are excited that our code-share partner Emirates today
launches its Boston-Dubai service, which will provide our customers
with seamless connections to and from Detroit. This route will also
connect well with Turkish Airlines, when their Boston-Istanbul
service begins on May 12." 
Detroit has for years been a high-fare market, which JetBlue's entry
will hopefully change. JetBlue has also been cited by an independent
study from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) as the
low-cost carrier that lowered fares the most when it began service in
a new U.S. market in 2012. The JetBlue Effect, MIT says, lowered
fares $32 one way on average (b).
