Long Beach to San Francisco flights planned for fall

SAN FRANCISCO, Aug. 14, 2008 (PRIME NEWSWIRE) -- Award-winning JetBlue Airways today announces plans to launch new premium low-fare service this fall between San Francisco International Airport and its West Coast focus city in Long Beach, Calif. JetBlue's three daily flights will be the only nonstop service from SFO to Long Beach, the uncomplicated and uncrowded Los Angeles airport. Two daily flights will begin October 18 while a third daily flight will be added November 2, all aboard JetBlue's roomy 100-seat EMBRAER 190 jet.

JetBlue's new flights from SFO round out its busy Bay to Basin schedule, which this fall will include three daily flights each from Oakland, San Francisco and San Jose, to Long Beach. From San Francisco, JetBlue also offers daily nonstop service to Austin, Texas and New York's John F. Kennedy International Airport.

"Our customers keep asking for more service from more airports and we're happy to provide it," said Jim Fuoco, JetBlue's manager of route planning. "With our service between Long Beach and both Oakland and San Jose, and now SFO, too, JetBlue is making it even easier to jet between L.A. and the Bay Area, regardless of which airport you prefer to use. We look forward to welcoming you aboard JetBlue for a truly comfortable, entertaining, and hassle-free travel experience to L.A.'s easiest airport."
