Milwaukee Becomes Airline’s 110th Destination, Further Expanding Low Fares and Award-Winning Service to the Midwest

$59 and $69 One Way Fares Available Online Only on JetBlue.com

NEW YORK–(BUSINESS WIRE)–JetBlue (NASDAQ:JBLU) today announced it has officially launched service from New York’s John F. Kennedy International Airport (JFK) and Boston Logan International Airport (BOS) to Milwaukee Mitchell International Airport (MKE), with the first flight arriving in Milwaukee this morning. With daily nonstop flights from New York and Boston, JetBlue continues to advance its growth strategy in the Northeast and introduce the airline’s award-winning service and low fares to new customers in the Midwest.

Enabled by JetBlue’s Northeast Alliance (NEA), Milwaukee service expands the airline’s presence in the Midwest, while diversifying and advancing its New York and Boston focus city strategy. Milwaukee is one of more than half a dozen new cities recently added to JetBlue’s route map. In 2022, the NEA will offer nearly 500 daily departures from New York’s three major airports and 200 daily departures from Boston.

“Adding Milwaukee to our route map will help diversify our markets, support our Northeast growth strategy and give our customers more travel options,” said Andrea Lusso, vice president network planning, JetBlue. “We are excited to offer our customers flying for business or leisure an opportunity to explore Milwaukee and connect Milwaukee residents to our New York and Boston focus city networks.”

Located on the scenic shore of Lake Michigan, Milwaukee offers an exceptional blend of stunning natural beauty, big city arts and entertainment, and Midwest charm. A downtown RiverWalk connects German heritage-inspired Old World Third Street to the Historic Third Ward with its shops and art galleries and Milwaukee Public Market. Milwaukee is a city of colorful, walk-around neighborhoods, acclaimed culinary scene, and entrepreneurial spirit, where exciting attractions like the Milwaukee Art Museum meet brewery tours, excursion boats, professional sports and a summer-long schedule of lakefront festivals.

“Milwaukee County is thrilled that JetBlue will bring more tourists and business travelers from New York and Boston to Milwaukee and beyond. Our amazing lakefront, cultural attractions, restaurants, and breweries are just some of the ways that Milwaukee offers guests a world-class experience,” said Milwaukee County Executive David Crowley. “I commend the Airport team for successfully recruiting JetBlue to MKE. We are excited to use the new service!”

Milwaukee Mitchell International Airport (MKE) currently offers nonstop flights to 35+ destinations coast-to-coast, and more than 200 international destinations are available with just one connection. Earlier this month, MKE received an Airport Service Quality (ASQ) Best Airport – North America award from Airports Council International, one of just eight U.S. airports to receive this honor.

“JetBlue’s outstanding customer service and in-flight product will be a big hit for Milwaukee travelers,” said Airport Director Brian Dranzik, who also serves on the VISIT Milwaukee Board of Directors. “Many people have been asking when JetBlue would come to Milwaukee. I’m glad that day has arrived. With our community’s support, JetBlue will do well here and carry many travelers to New York and Boston.”
