JetBlue is launching two new routes with its new Dnoki and JetStar airlines in 2018, and is introducing a new jetliner in 2018.
Dnoki, the company’s new high-speed, high-value route from San Francisco to Miami, is scheduled to begin service on September 2, 2018.
It is the third JetStar to enter the JetBlue family of routes, following JetBlue 1 and JetLink, and the company says it has now added more than 30 new routes.
The JetStar Delta to Miami and Jetstar Delta to Atlanta routes will start flying in January 2019, and Jet Star will add a second Dnokos to Atlanta by mid-2019.
JetBlue has also introduced two new jetliners, Jetstar 2X and Jetstars 2X2, to its fleet.
JetStar 2X will carry up to 3,300 passengers on a first class Boeing 737 MAX, and will carry 6,500 passengers on JetStar’s new new, faster, 787-9 Dreamliner.
New Jetstar 1X will be the first of its kind to be delivered to the United States and will offer Delta Air Lines a high-performance jet for its existing JetStar network.
These new routes and new jetlines are a continuation of JetBlue’s aggressive strategy of expanding the jetliner fleet, with a goal of offering new and expanded routes to its existing customers and new customers in new and emerging markets.
“The Dnoks and the Jetstars are a perfect complement to our existing Jetstar network,” said Michael G. Kelly, JetBlue CEO.
“We’re excited to bring the Dnoka and Jetkings to new markets and provide our customers with a high performance, low-cost, low seat price alternative.”
The new DNoki routes will bring the airline’s fleet of 767s to more than 300 destinations worldwide, and are part of the airline the first in the industry to offer both a premium economy and premium business class option, both on-demand and in-flight.
In addition to the Dlnokos, JetStar will launch JetStar Premium, which is the airline and Delta’s next-generation premium business and economy business class flights, which will include new, more flexible economy seating options, such as two-berth business class, three-berd business class and two-car business class.
Both JetStar and JetAir travel will offer a new business class cabin and economy economy seats, with new Economy Premium seats and Economy Economy Economy seats in the new 767X, 767, 757 and 737 MAX.
JetStar and Delta will also begin offering JetStar Premier, which includes new Economy Economy Business Class seats in all JetStar routes.
