SEATTLE, WA—JETBLUE AIRLINES, INC.
(NYSE: JBL), the world’s largest commercial airline, today announced that it will cancel flights to and from the Seattle area, effective February 4, 2019.
The announcement was made in a press release and in a statement sent to WUSA-TV.
“Effective today, JetBlue will not be providing flights to the Seattle metropolitan area,” said Jim Ritter, Vice President of Global Communications for JetBlue.
“Our focus remains on our primary goal of providing the safest, most convenient travel options available to our customers.”
JetBlue has been the world leader in travel options since its inception in 1972.
The airline has long operated a network of connecting hubs in Seattle and Portland, Oregon, providing its customers with a seamless travel experience.
In 2018, JetLink, a joint venture between JetBlue and the Seattle Municipal Transit Authority (SUMTA), will provide service from Seattle to Portland.
A total of seven JetBlue-operated hubs will operate at the new Seattle hub, and the JetBlue Seattle hub will also serve as the primary hub for the MAX light rail system.
The Seattle hubs are: Seattle Central International Airport, Seattle International Airport (SWA), Seattle West International Airport and the airport near the Seattle Center.
JetBlue plans to expand its service in 2019, when it will expand to the greater Seattle area.
“We are disappointed to see JetBlue depart from the region.
We remain committed to making the Seattle region the premier destination for our passengers and partners and we look forward to continuing our service with new partners, including the Seattle Regional Transit Authority,” said Sumeta Shigeta, President and CEO of the Seattle Airport Authority.
“The Seattle region remains a great place to travel and JetBlue is committed to serving its growing passenger base and growing local economy.”
