JetBlue's love affair with New York started in 1998 when the airline was first founded. In 2000, JetBlue affectionately took to the skies with service between John F. Kennedy international airport and Buffalo. The airline is now the largest domestic airline at JFK, operating more than 150 nonstop flights daily to 56 destinations throughout the United States, the Caribbean and Latin America. New York's romance with JetBlue runs deep as the only commercial carrier headquartered in the Big Apple and the first company to co-brand the iconic I HEART NY logo.
JetBlue shares the love each and every day of the year, with its award-winning service; convenient, assigned, comfy leather seating; a first-checked bag free (c); more than 140 channels of complimentary live television and radio on personal seatback screens (d); and more legroom than any other carrier in coach (e). The airline, well-known for its superior and personable customer service, also offers a free and unlimited assortment of name brand snacks and drinks for the ride.
