JetBlue Airways launches Boston-Detroit service, Detroit becomes the 85th BlueCity

JetBlue Airways (New York) yesterday (March 10) added Detroit, Michigan to its route map from Boston. The airline issued this report on its Blue Tales blog:

JetBlue launched Detroit as its 85 BlueCity and our 51 nonstop destination from Boston. JetBlue is entering the market with three daily Embraer 190 flights between BOS and Detroit Metropolitan Wayne County Airport (DTW).

We’re really excited to give the business communities within the two cities a new comfortable (and affordable!) option for travel. And with one of the largest Arab American communities in our country the greater Detroit area we know our code-share with Emirates will be of great interest to many as Emirates also began their nonstop  BOS – Dubai (DXB) flights today.

Here are some photos from our inaugural flight:
