JetBlue Airways and American Airlines have both announced plans to expand service to domestic and international destinations out of Logan International Airport in Boston. The carriers' expansion will add 18 new flights beginning this spring.
The first flight will be JetBlue's new nonstop service to St. Maarten, beginning February 14, 2009. The route is a part of JetBlue's expanded service to the Caribbean, which includes the resumption of seasonal nonstop service to Bermuda and a new daily nonstop service to San Juan, Puerto Rico beginning in May.
JetBlue expands domestic service on May 1, 2009 as well, resuming seasonal nonstop service to San Francisco, and adding a second daily
flight to Charlotte and Raleigh/Durham, N.C., Chicago and Pittsburgh, a third daily flight to Buffalo and
Los Angeles/Long Beach, a sixth and seventh daily flight to Washington, D.C.; and a ninth and tenth daily flight to New York.
American's new daily route to San Diego takes off April 7, 2009 along with
a fourth daily flight to Los Angeles, a ninth daily flight to
Dallas-Fort Worth, and a third daily flight to St. Louis. On May 1, the airline adds a third daily flight to London and will resume its daily, seasonal flight to Paris.
