If you have dreamed of a trip to New York from Vancouver, it has become much easier.
JetBlue launches direct flights between YVR and JFK from today, giving travelers a convenient and affordable alternative to getting to the Big Apple from the west coast.
To mark the occasion, JetBlue is offering a limited number of prices at the low price of $ 119 only available online at JetBlue.com
The New York Vancouver connection is the first time JetBlue offers a Canadian destination.
DailyHive spoke with JetBlue Marketing Manager Jayne O’Brien about the exciting news.
“We are known for our award-winning service and most legroom on the bus,” she said.
Although it is an affordable service, it does not save on quality. Flights offer free Wi-Fi, live TV and other exciting entertainment options. O’Brien also said that JetBlue offers a service called EMS that stands for even more space.
“Customers should not have to compromise to get a great product and a good price, and that’s what we do.”
The daily service will operate as a single flight on an Airbus A320. Free and unlimited snacks and soft drinks will be offered on board.
“The addition of Vancouver to our route map marks an important milestone for JetBlue as our first Canadian destination,” said JetBlue’s Vice President of Network Planning Andrea Lusso in a statement.
“We look forward not only to introducing our outstanding service and competitive pricing to Canadian customers, but also to providing access to all the cities we serve from New York.”
O’Brien added that research suggests that not only are Vancouver travelers happy to go to the east coast of New York, but that travelers from the Big Apple are just as happy to visit the west coast.
