JetBlue planning Jamaica routes

From Caribbean360:

NEW YORK, United States, August 27, 2009 - Two American low-cost carriers are battling for a share of the Caribbean market, and Jamaica in particular.

JetBlue Airways, which already has a foot hold in the region with up to 71 daily flights to Caribbean destinations, and AirTran Airways both made requests on Tuesday to begin new services in Jamaica.

JetBlue said it had applied for authority from the island's government to begin offering two new routes linking Montego Bay to its expanding focus cities in Boston and Orlando, Florida, starting from the coming winter season.

"Jamaica and JetBlue is truly a match made in heaven - or paradise, as it were," said Scott Laurence, JetBlue's vice president of route planning. "We're thrilled to add to our island service with new flights from Boston and Orlando, where our ongoing international expansion has been a true success story."
