JetBlue plans to increase Boston (BOS) service by more than 40 percent to 200 peak day departures. It’s also launching a new non-stop flight to Atlanta (ATL), beginning March 30, 2017.
“Boston travelers have spoken, and we are listening by adding Atlanta to our route map and expanding our operation to 200 peak day departures. After decades of being underserved by high-fare legacy carriers, Boston has an airline that is committed to offering the best service and most nonstop destinations of any other airline,” said Marty St. George, executive vice president commercial and planning, JetBlue.
Atlanta is the airline’s 63rd non-stop destination from Boston, making it the largest airline to operate out of the airport. After the launch, service from Atlanta extends to Fort Lauderdale (FLL), New York (JFK) and Orlando (MCO). An Airbus A320 is slated to serve the route. Flights depart Boston five times daily for Atlanta, at 6:10 a.m., 8:30 a.m., 1:10 p.m., 4 p.m. and 6:55 p.m.
JetBlue additionally plans to add a fourth daily Mint flight between Boston and San Francisco (SFO) starting July 15, 2017. Mint service is expanded to every flight between Boston and Los Angeles (LAX) Nov. 18, 2016. The current seasonal services between Boston and Montego Bay (MBJ) and St. Thomas (STT) are extended year-round.

Welcome to Rhodes, a medieval treasure beautifully preserved throughout the centuries. Rhodes is the capital of the Dodecanese, an island ideal not only for those who want to relax, but also for those looking for an action-packed holiday! With its bright green hills, rich green valleys and uninterrupted line of golden beaches, Rhodes is truly a blessed place. “The sun island” has more sunshiny days and milder temperatures throughout the year than any other location in Greece. It is, after all, one of the country’s easternmost places and among the first to welcome summer on its impressive beaches. Add in the excellent facilities for tourism, the island’s special blend of cosmopolitan and traditional, and numerous cultural and archaeological sites, the most important being the Medieval (Old) Town, a UNESCO World Heritage site, and you’ve got the perfect holiday destination. While on Rhodes, don’t miss a daytrip to nearby Sými. An island of sponge divers and seamen, Sými used to have 30,000 inhabitants before the Second World War and was the richest island in the Dodecanese, despite its small size. Today, Sými attracts many visitors thanks to its beautifully preserved Neo-Classical buildings and the famous Archangel Michael monastery at Panormitis.
