JetBlue (JBLU), a New York-based airline, has announced the inauguration of its first service between John F. Kennedy International Airport (JFK) and Vancouver International Airport (YVR) in Canada.
On June 9, 2022, JetBlue’s (JBLU) Airbus A320 aircraft, N729JB, took off from JFK airport and landed in Vancouver YVR airport, marking the airline’s first Canadian destination and making it the first airline to offer direct flights between New York and Vancouver.
“The addition of Vancouver to our route map marks an important milestone for JetBlue (JBLU) as our first Canadian destination,” Andrea Lusso, vice president of network planning at JetBlue (JBLU), said.
“We look forward to not only introducing our outstanding service and competitive fares to Canadian customers but also providing access to all the cities we serve from New York.”
Using the company’s fleet of Airbus A320 aircraft, the airline will conduct nonstop daily flights to Vancouver.
“JetBlue’s (JBLU) new direct service to JFK means easier access from an important east coast market and is another significant step for Vancouver towards rebuilding our visitor economy.
Nonstop air service from key North American cities makes our city an even more appealing destination for business events and for leisure travelers,” said Royce Chwin, president and CEO, Destination Vancouver.
