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.
Two Delta Connection flights have gotten stuck in the snow this morning at Detroit Metro Airport (DTW). The two aircraft are unrelated. DTW is currently experiencing a heavy snowstorm. According to Channel 4 News, one regional jet clipped a snow bank and got stuck. The other regional jet’s nose gear left the taxiway and got stuck in snow. Crews are attempting to free both aircraft.
More details will be added as they are confirmed.
Snow and ice storms are now impacting hundreds of flights in a corridor from Missouri through the Northeast (please see the NOAA Weather Warning Map above).
JetBlue Airways (New York) has announced that Detroit will become its 85th destination in the Americas, with new nonstop flights to Boston Logan Airport beginning on March 10, 2014. Detroit becomes JetBlue’s 51st nonstop destination from Boston and the newest business market served.
JetBlue will serve the Boston-Detroit route three times daily, operated with its 100-seat Embraer 190 aircraft.
