JetBlue Announces New Non-Stop Service From
New York and Boston to Savannah/Hilton Head
BOSTON, Oct. 7, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- JetBlue Airways (Nasdaq: JBLU) today announces that Savannah, GA will be the 50th nonstop destination for customers in Boston. JetBlue, the largest airline in Boston with up to 121 daily flights, will begin daily nonstop service on Flight #50 between Savannah/Hilton Head and Boston Thursday, Feb. 13, 2014. Special fares from $89 one-way are available for purchase now through Oct. 9, 2013 for travel between Feb. 13 – April 10, 2014 (a).
Twice-daily non-stop service between Savannah/Hilton Head International Airport (SAV), convenient to both Georgia and South Carolina, and New York starts February 13, 2014. Flights are available today at www.jetblue.com/new for as low as $79 one way for travel between February 13 and March 31, 2014. Blackout dates apply (b).
Savannah/Hilton Head will be JetBlue's 83rd BlueCity. In addition to JetBlue's non-stop service to New York, customers will be able to connect to other destinations in the United States including Albuquerque, NM; Boston, MA; Denver, CO; Los Angeles, CA and San Francisco, CA, among others.
"Our NY Hometown focus includes adding non-stop destinations to places that are important to New Yorkers. Given the success of our current network, Savannah and Port of Spain make perfect sense,” said Scott Laurence, vice president of network planning for JetBlue Airways. “We combine low fares with the best customer experience in the skies. Customers visiting Savannah, Hilton Head and the surrounding area, as well as Trinidad and Tobago have dealt with high fares, cramped seating and limited choices for too long.”

Visit Savannah, the official resource for travel to Savannah, and The Hilton Head Island Chamber of Commerce has also extended a warm welcome to JetBlue. “This has not been an overnight success story by any means.

We are thrilled to have one of the most highly regarded airlines in the industry servicing our region.
