BOSTON (WBZ NewsRadio) — JetBlue is suspending or cutting 27 of its routes this summer, including a flight from Logan Airport.
Starting on May 1, JetBlue will no longer offer flights from Logan Airport to Key West. This suspension will last until October 21 and also will apply to a route to Key West from JFK Airport in New York.
JetBlue is moving to suspend and cut these 27 routes in response to rising fuel prices and ongoing fuel initiatives. A JetBlue spokesperson said all 27 of the routes either were long hauls that burned more fuel, ones that don't make financial sense because of high prices, or ones that have certain operational challenges.
This isn't the first time JetBlue has modified its service to Key West this year. A JetBlue spokesperson said in January, the airline made an adjustment to its Key West service to turn it into a winter seasonal market.
"As our customers return to more expected, pre-pandemic booking patterns, these changes will free up aircraft time that we can redeploy into other areas of our network that hold the most strength and relevance to our network strategy in the long term," the spokesperson said in a statement.
