JetBlue Touches Down in Kansas City and Milwaukee

JetBlue

JetBlue on Sunday, March 27 announced new non-stop flights to Kansas City and Milwaukee both from New York’s John F. Kennedy International Airport (JFK) and Boston’s Logan International Airport (BOS).

The airline has officially launched service from New York’s John F. Kennedy International Airport (JFK) and Boston’s Logan International Airport (BOS) to Kansas City International Airport (MCI).

The other service is launched from New York’s John F. Kennedy International Airport (JFK) and Boston Logan International Airport (BOS) to Milwaukee Mitchell International Airport (MKE).

Kansas City

Kansas City is one of more than half a dozen new cities recently added to JetBlue’s route map. In 2022, the NEA will offer nearly 500 daily departures from New York’s three major airports and 200 daily departures from Boston.

“Our customers and crewmembers have been asking for years to add flights to the Midwest and we listened,” said Andrea Lusso, vice president network planning, JetBlue.

“We are very excited to add Kansas City to our growing network and connect the Northeast to the heart of America by introducing our low fares and outstanding service and providing customers access to our New York and Boston focus city networks.”

Kansas City is a cosmopolitan, cultural metropolitan area of two million people. Many know and love the destination for its world-famous barbecue, sultry jazz, world-champion sports and romantic fountains, all which can be experienced throughout the metro area in addition to its trademark Midwestern hospitality. Lately, however, it's the city's remarkable renaissance that is driving new interest in the destination. More than $10 billion has been poured into the city, reinventing the visitor experience from the ground up in regards to museums, hotels, restaurants, attractions and more.

For millions of passengers each year, Kansas City serves as mid-America’s link to the world. Drawing customers, cargo and commerce from Missouri, Kansas, Iowa, Nebraska and beyond, the airport is a major catalyst in the growth and development of the region and plays a significant role in bringing in new business, conventions and tourists to the area. Now underway is the building of a new $1.5 billion, 39-gate, single terminal slated to open March 2023.

Milwaukee

Enabled by JetBlue’s Northeast Alliance (NEA), Milwaukee service expands the airline’s presence in the Midwest, while diversifying and advancing its New York and Boston focus city strategy. Milwaukee is one of more than half a dozen new cities recently added to JetBlue’s route map. In 2022, the NEA will offer nearly 500 daily departures from New York’s three major airports and 200 daily departures from Boston.

“Adding Milwaukee to our route map will help diversify our markets, support our Northeast growth strategy and give our customers more travel options. We are excited to offer our customers flying for business or leisure an opportunity to explore Milwaukee and connect Milwaukee residents to our New York and Boston focus city networks,” said Andrea Lusso.

Located on the scenic shore of Lake Michigan, Milwaukee offers an exceptional blend of stunning natural beauty, big city arts and entertainment, and Midwest charm. A downtown RiverWalk connects German heritage-inspired Old World Third Street to the Historic Third Ward with its shops and art galleries and Milwaukee Public Market. Milwaukee is a city of colorful, walk-around neighborhoods, acclaimed culinary scene, and entrepreneurial spirit, where exciting attractions like the Milwaukee Art Museum meet brewery tours, excursion boats, professional sports and a summer-long schedule of lakefront festivals.

Milwaukee Mitchell International Airport (MKE) currently offers nonstop flights to 35+ destinations coast-to-coast, and more than 200 international destinations are available with just one connection. Earlier this month, MKE received an Airport Service Quality (ASQ) Best Airport – North America award from Airports Council International, one of just eight U.S. airports to receive this honor.
