JetBlue to launch nonstop CLE-Boston flights

Cleveland—JetBlue announced today that it will begin two daily nonstop CLE-Boston flights beginning April 30, 2015.

“This is great news for CLE,” said Greater Cleveland Partnership President and CEO Joe Roman.” Many thanks to our board members for their involvement in helping to secure Jet Blue as a carrier at Hopkins and to the members of the Air Service Demand Task Force for their leadership in this effort.

The service will be provided on a 100-seat E-190 aircraft with a two-by-two layout, which means customers have either an aisle or a window seat. Even “More Space” seats, offering additional legroom, also are available on the E190. All seats are equipped with an in-flight entertainment system with 36 channels of DIRECTV and 100+ channels of SiriusXM Radio.

The new nonstop service will be a benefit to GCP members whose travel itineraries frequently include Boston. Tickets are available for purchase as of 9 a.m., Tuesday, Dec. 9. Here is the tentative schedule (flight numbers and flight times subject to change):

BOS-CLE
Flight 441 Depart: 6:45a.m. Arrive: 8:50 a.m. Daily E190 (100 seats)
Flight 641 Depart: 4:10 p.m. Arrive: 6:15 p.m. Daily E190 (100 seats)
 
CLE-BOS
Flight 440 Depart 9:30 a.m. Arrive 11:20 a.m. Daily E190 (100 seats)
Flight 640 Depart 7:55 p.m. Arrive 8:45 p.m. Daily E190 (100 seats)

As stated in our press release last week following United Airlines' announcement, the GCP Air Service Demand Task Force is continuing its work with the City of Cleveland, the State of Ohio and other partners to help ensure convenient and affordable air service for business and leisure travelers.

We’re excited that JetBlue has joined the roster of airlines serving our city.
