JetBlue Adds Boston to St. Maarten Nonstop Flights

Aruba and Cancun Routes Expand to Daily Service

Now Offering 28 Destinations From Boston

BOSTON, Oct. 16, 2008 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- JetBlue Airways (Nasdaq:JBLU), already the airline with the most nonstop destinations from Boston, today announces plans to introduce even more Caribbean service from Logan International Airport this winter.

Beginning February 14, 2009, JetBlue will offer nonstop service from Boston to St. Maarten in the Netherlands Antilles, subject to foreign government approval. Service will operate on Saturdays, complementing JetBlue's existing daily flights to St. Maarten via New York.

In addition to its new route to St. Maarten, JetBlue will expand on the success of other Boston to Caribbean routes by adding daily nonstop service to both Aruba and Cancun, Mexico -- plus extra service to Cancun on Saturdays -- effective February 12, 2009, a substantial increase over the current schedule of three flights per week to Aruba and five flights per week to Cancun. JetBlue also offers Caribbean sun-seekers daily nonstop service from Logan to San Juan, Puerto Rico; Nassau, Bahamas; and new this winter, nonstop flights to Santo Domingo, Dominican Republic, subject to foreign government approval, during the holidays.

"This winter JetBlue celebrates five successful years of serving the greater Boston community," said JetBlue's Vice President of Network Planning Marty St. George. "We're proud to have so quickly become the carrier of choice for Hub travelers, now offering more nonstop destinations from Logan than any other airline. On behalf of the more than 1,000 JetBlue Crewmembers who live and work in Boston, we thank you for your support and look forward to seeing you in the skies this winter on one of our expanded Caribbean routes!"

JetBlue's service to St. Maarten will operate aboard its comfortable 150-seat Airbus A320, offering industry-leading legroom, roomy leather seats, seatback televisions, and free snacks and drinks -- a travel experience made even better by JetBlue's friendly, customer-focused Crewmembers.

JetBlue is the second-largest airline in the Caribbean and this winter will offer more than 80 daily flights to the region's most popular destinations including Aruba; Bermuda; Cancun; Nassau, Bahamas; Aguadilla, Ponce, and San Juan, Puerto Rico; and Puerto Plata, Santiago and Santo Domingo, Dominican Republic.
