Service from Boston to Salt Lake City begins 12 May, followed by flights from Fort Lauderdale to San Diego on 16 June.

Both routes will operate daily, with Airbus A320 aircraft.

“We are so pleased to continue JetBlue’s growth in our east coast focus cities and in the western US with these two new nonstop routes,” says Dave Clark, vice-president network planning at JetBlue.
