JETBLUE ANNOUNCES EXPANSION OF FLORIDA SERVICE

WARWICK, RI – June 18, 2020 – The Rhode Island Airport Corporation (RIAC) is pleased to announce that JetBlue will resume service at T.F. Green Airport on July 2 with four-day a week service to Fort Lauderdale, FL.  JetBlue also announced today that they will add two new routes from T.F.

The new routes to Tampa and Fort Myers will complement the existing three routes JetBlue is currently offering from Rhode Island.  The airline temporarily suspended service at T.F.

JetBlue has been at T.F. Green for 7.5 years. The airline added PVD to its network in November 2012 with flights to Orlando and Fort Myers and added a third route, West Palm Beach, in February 2019.   In announcing 30 new domestic service at several airports across the nation, JetBlue noted they were prioritizing regions of the country where leisure travel is showing signs of strength.

Green Airport cleaning crews continue enhanced sanitizing protocols, utilizing EPA and CDC approved hospital grade disinfectants, electrostatic sprayers, and automated cleaning technology to efficiently and effectively sanitize escalator railings and other high touch areas throughout the terminal.
