JetBlue announces nonstop service to Long Beach from Silicon Valley’s Airport


SAN JOSE, CA – JetBlue today announced nonstop service between Mineta San José International Airport (SJC) and Long Beach Airport, an easy and efficient gateway to Southern California, beginning January 4, 2017. The four new daily flights are an important service addition to the heavily-traveled “Bay-to-Basin” corridor by Silicon Valley business and leisure travelers.

“JetBlue has successfully served Mineta San José International Airport since 2004 with nonstop service to Boston and New York, and I am delighted to see our airline partner expand its presence in Silicon Valley by offering nonstop service to Southern California via Long Beach,” said San José Mayor Sam Liccardo. “JetBlue’s growth in San José is an indication of the continued demand by residents and businesses seeking competitive fares, convenience, and a world-class travel experience.”

JetBlue will operate the four daily nonstop flights between SJC and Long Beach using modern Airbus A320 aircraft configured to seat 150 passengers.

“We want to give our customers in Silicon Valley even more JetBlue love by offering our award-winning service to Long Beach, a convenient gateway to Southern California,” said Dave Clark, vice president network planning, JetBlue. “Since landing in San Jose in 2004, our customers have come to expect nothing but the best when they fly and we can’t wait to welcome them aboard these new flights.”

The flights are conveniently scheduled throughout the day to allow travelers more choices in departure and arrival time, and to support ongoing demand for travel between the Bay Area and Los Angeles Basin.
