JetBlue Airways on July 2 announced it has officially launched service at Boise Airport (BOI) in Idaho, with the airline’s first flight departing New York’s John F. Kennedy International Airport (JFK) just after 4 o’clock. New summer seasonal service operates four times weekly now through Labor Day with plans to resume flying in summer 2022.
Boise becomes JetBlue’s first destination in Idaho and the 31st state served by the airline. Boise is a rare blend of urban and outdoors, active and relaxing, family-friendly and welcoming. It has unique sites and attractions, diverse cultural offerings and unlimited recreation, including close access to some of the country’s most sought after white water rafting and skiing destinations. At the foot of the scenic Boise Front, Boise boasts several Fortune 500 companies with national and international headquarters or divisions, sprawling high-tech campuses and a major university with a distinctive blue football field. This city, with a river running through it, enjoys its easily accessible outdoors as much as its eclectic urban offerings.
JetBlue is now the only airline operating nonstop service between Boise and the Northeast. The route to New York City is the longest-range route operated from Boise Airport, which is a department of the City of Boise. Operations in its current location began in 1938 and a terminal expansion was completed in 2003. Today, the airport has two concourses, comprised of 23 gates, and hosts multiple restaurants and retail shops. This summer, an average of 83 daily flights depart the airport and in 2019, a record high of more than 4.1 million travelers passed through the airport.
