JetBlue's Boston Expansion Continues: Now Flying to Aruba and San Diego
Now Offering 27 Nonstop Destinations From Boston's Logan, Including More Cities in California Than Any Other Airline

BOSTON, June 28, 2007 (PRIME NEWSWIRE) -- JetBlue Airways (Nasdaq:JBLU), the fastest-growing airline at Boston's Logan International Airport, this week kicks off another round of expansion with the launch of service to two new cities: San Diego and Aruba. The award-winning low-fare, low-cost airline's newest service to California begins today while its new Caribbean service starts Saturday, June 30. JetBlue now offers its affordable fares and friendly service to 27 nonstop destinations from its Boston focus city.

JetBlue will operate one daily nonstop flight to San Diego and one weekly nonstop flight, on Saturdays, to Aruba. Beginning November 5, flights to Aruba will expand to operate three-times weekly -- on Mondays, Wednesdays, and Saturdays. JetBlue also offers daily connecting service between Boston and Aruba year-round via New York.

"Just in time for summer vacation, we're adding nonstop service to two of our customers' most sought-after destinations," said Marty St. George, Boston native and JetBlue's Vice President of Network Planning. "Whether you're headed to the Caribbean, to California, or anywhere in between, JetBlue gets you there in style and without breaking the bank."

From its recently renovated home at Terminal C, JetBlue offers low-fare, high-quality service to an ever-expanding roster of destinations in the United States, Aruba, the Bahamas, Bermuda, and Mexico, including the most California destinations served nonstop from Logan. In addition, connecting service operated by JetBlue's marketing partner, Cape Air, is available through Boston for customers traveling between San Diego and Martha's Vineyard, Nantucket, Provincetown, and Hyannis, MA.

Customers flying JetBlue between Logan and Aruba or San Diego will travel in style aboard the airline's brand-new Airbus A320 fleet, which features a spacious cabin and all-leather seating plus the most legroom in coach. San Diego flights include JetBlue's signature 36 channels of DIRECTV(r) programming at every seat -- the most free live television of any airline -- while customers traveling to Aruba will enjoy complimentary first-run movies and bonus features from FOX InFlight(tm).

Customers enrolled in JetBlue's customer loyalty program, TrueBlue, will earn six TrueBlue points each way for nonstop flights between Boston and Aruba or San Diego.

New York-based JetBlue Airways has created a new airline category based on value, service and style. Known for its award-winning service and free TV as much as its low fares, JetBlue is now pleased to offer customers the most legroom throughout coach (based on average fleet-wide seat pitch for U.S. airlines). JetBlue is also America's first and only airline to offer its own Customer Bill of Rights, with meaningful compensation for customers inconvenienced by service disruptions within JetBlue's control. Visit www.jetblue.com/promise for details. JetBlue serves 54 cities with up to 575 daily flights. With JetBlue, all seats are assigned, all travel is ticketless, all fares are one-way, and an overnight stay is never required.

JetBlue's 36 channels of DIRECTV(r) service are not available on flights outside the continental United States; however, where applicable, FOX InFlight(tm) is offered complimentary on these routes. FOX InFlight(tm) is a trademark of Twentieth Century Fox Film Corporation. JetBlue's in-flight entertainment is powered by LiveTV, a wholly owned subsidiary of JetBlue.
