Barbecue and jazz music are only a few of the things that make Kansas City great. Thanks to JetBlue, you can experience all of them by flying there for as low as $74. The New-York-based airline announced that as of March 27, daily service from New York’s John F. Kennedy International Airport (JFK) and Boston’s Logan International Airport (BOS) to Kansas City International Airport (MCI) have commenced.
“Our customers and crew members have been asking for years to add flights to the Midwest and we listened,” said Andrea Lusso, vice president of JetBlue’s network planning, in a statement. “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.”
JetBlue has been able to introduce this new route thanks to its Northeast Alliance with American Airlines. Kansas City is one of eight destinations recently added to JetBlue’s route map, including Milwaukee; Louisville; Memphis; Pensacola; Traverse City; Portland, Maine; and Halifax, Nova Scotia.
In 2022, the Northeast Alliance plans to offer approximately 500 daily departures from New York’s three major airports and 200 daily departures from Boston.
An Airbus A220 aircraft will service the Kansas City routes, providing free WiFi, complementary name-brand snacks and soft drinks, and free TV programming at every seat.
The $74 fares are only available for a limited time and must be booked through JetBlue’s website.
