JetBlue to Canada

What tools do people have to see who serves what city pairs.  Is it just an Internet search of flights between cities or is there something more focussed like the OAG guide that I see mentioned from time to time.

Expert Flyer is really good.  It requires a paid subscription.  Otherwise, any of the online travel agencies.  Some of them permit filtering by nonstop, number of stops etc.

For mobile devices, the Staff Traveller app is great.

Here is an update:

NEW YORK–(BUSINESS WIRE)–JetBlue (NASDAQ: JBLU) and American Airlines (NASDAQ:AAL) today announced plans for the next phase of their Northeast Alliance – authorized by the U.S. Department of Transportation earlier this year – which is aimed at giving travelers in the northeast new competitive choices. Enabled by the alliance, JetBlue will bring its everyday low fares and award-winning service to more travelers in the northeast by adding seven all-new new destinations in New York and Boston, tripling flights at LaGuardia compared to 2019 levels and introducing more than 40 additional codeshare routes.

Seven New JetBlue Cities

JetBlue plans to add seven new destinations to its route map later this year and in 2022. Each new city advances JetBlue’s focus city strategy in New York or Boston by strengthening JetBlue’s service in the Midwest, southern U.S., Central America and introducing JetBlue in Canada and Honduras. Seats will go on sale in the coming months.

“Almost since day one, both our customers and crewmembers have been asking us to add flights to the middle of the country and into Canada,” Laurence said. “We can’t wait to shake up the status quo in these markets currently dominated by high-fare carriers, and we look forward to introducing new customers to JetBlue favorites like live seatback TV, free Wi-Fi, the most legroom in coach and great service from our friendly Crewmembers.”

“Over the past year, JetBlue and the Port Authority of New York and New Jersey have worked together to prioritize the health and well-being of air travelers and we’re looking forward to welcoming customers back to our airports,” said Huntley A. Lawrence, Acting Chief Operating Officer and Director, Aviation Department at the Port Authority of New York and New Jersey. “We congratulate JetBlue on launching a dozen new routes at JFK and LGA—another sure and positive sign that the hard work behind us is leading to better days ahead.”

“Our continued partnership with airlines such as JetBlue is important to ensuring that people get to where they have to go during this extraordinary time,” said Ed Freni, Massport Aviation Director. “Keeping our passengers and employees safe and healthy is our number 1 priority. We encourage all travelers to wear masks and follow social distancing guidelines, and to follow the Commonwealth’s travel advisory when they arrive in Boston.”

    • Launching Summer 2022
    • “We’re delighted that JetBlue has selected Vancouver as its first Canadian destination with service from YVR to New York City and Boston,” said Tamara Vrooman, President & CEO, Vancouver Airport Authority. “As we move through the pandemic and prepare for a safe and healthy return to non-essential travel, this new service, scheduled for Summer 2022, gives us all something to look forward to. By selecting YVR, JetBlue has signaled a vote of confidence in our region as a premier destination, and our airport as a trusted partner, that together will attract a mix of business and leisure travelers when the time is right to fly again.”

Due to lack of action and support from Justin and his liberal government, Canadian carriers have already lost 24% of international market share to foreign carriers and will likely lose more since U.S market has rebounded to nearly 50% of 2019 capacity and EU to over 35% while Canada languishes below 10%.

In light of BC's stringent policies on travel between regions there, John Ivison in the NP this morning was questioning,   why there has not been a call to halt to travel between provinces to stop the spread of the latest India variant.

24% of almost nothing isn't much. With the travel ban on india in effect it is far less.

Asking for government action to improve international travel right now makes you a very small "special interest group" as the entire country is more locked down internally than ever.

 

It's  special interest groups that have gotten us were we are now. Everyone beats up on Ford for not taking action sooner but they all whine when he did it at Christmas and they whined again when he announced more last week. 

Maybe if the police actually had some power to enforce the health orders they would get followed but everyone feels they have the right to be an idiot as per the Rights and Freedoms act.

But reduced market share means reduced carbon emissions from Canadian carriers, which will help Justin reach his Paris Accord goals. Never mind the laid off workers.

? Considering the massive reduction in air travel, we must be achieving tremendous gains in reducing C02 emissions, but I can not find any facts on that. One report said that airlines were responsible for 6% of the annual C02, if so where are any facts on a reduction?  

Should we concede that the reports over the past few years about how airlines were partly to blame for the increase in C02 and needed to find alternate "green" energy sources are yet another example of "fake" news?  ?
