Starting today, JetBlue will serveÂ PhiladelphiaÂ International Airport (PHL) with five daily nonstop flights from Boston’s Logan International Airport (BOS).
AddingÂ PhiladelphiaÂ to their growing route map helps solidify JetBlue’s already strong relevance for the business traveler, particularly at Logan International Airport.Â JetBlue operates over 100 daily flights fromÂ Boston’s Logan International Airport and PhiladelphiaÂ will be the 48th destination JetBlue serves from Boston.
“This is a great day forÂ Philadelphia,” said MayorÂ Michael A. Nutter. “JetBlue is a fine airline that has distinguished itself in the industry, and we are thrilled that travelers in theÂ PhiladelphiaÂ region can take advantage of JetBlue service with easy access to their flights. I want to acknowledge JetBlue for recognizing the value of doing business with the greaterÂ PhiladelphiaÂ region and business community.”
Additionally,Â JetBlue will be donating 1,776 books to Stonehurst Hills Elementary inÂ Upper Darby, PennsylvaniaÂ and KenCrest Services, an infant/toddler home community program with 325 pre-K students with developmental disabilities located inÂ Philadelphia. This donation is in conjuction with First Book, who provides new reading materials to children in need. Together, JetBlue and First Book hope to address one of the most important factors affecting literacy — access to books.
“As we continue to grow we remain focused on delivering the JetBlue experience that our customers have come to know and love,” said JetBlue’s Senior Vice President of Marketing and Commercial StrategyÂ Marty St. George. “We look forward to serving the city ofÂ Philadelphia.”
