BOZEMAN, MT (January 16, 2020). Bozeman Yellowstone International Airport (BZN) today
announced that JetBlue will begin new summer and winter seasonal nonstop
service between BZN and both New York-JFK and Boston Logan International
Airport (BOS) in June. JetBlue will introduce
the only nonstop service to Boston and New England from Montana. Additionally, they will offer the first
nonstop service to New York’s JFK airport which will offer connecting opportunities
to JetBlue’s broad JFK network with easy connections to upstate New York,
Florida and their extensive Caribbean network.
New York-JFK flights will operate three times weekly or up to daily at
various times throughout the seasons. Boston flights will operate twice weekly
on Saturdays and Wednesdays.
Lusso, director route planning, JetBlue: “With the most legroom in coach,
complimentary Wi-Fi, seatback entertainment, free snacks and more, travelers
flying between Bozeman and the East Coast can finally enjoy an upgraded and
comfortable experience along with JetBlue’s great low fares. With new service between Montana and both New
York and Boston, plus our existing flight to and from Southern California, the
beauty of Bozeman or the character of the coasts has never been closer no
matter where you’re flying.”
Scott Humphrey, deputy airport director, BZN: “Our relationship with JetBlue
started back in 2011 with initial discussions and visits with their team to
gauge interest in the BZN market and we’ve kept in contact with them over the
years as our market grew. JetBlue introduced seasonal service from Bozeman to
Long Beach, California in 2018, and the success of that service has given
JetBlue the insight and confidence in our market to add these two new East
Coast seasonal flights. These flights would not be possible without our
partners, the Yellowstone Club, Lone Mountain Land Company, Big Sky Resort,
Bozeman Area Chamber of Commerce, Gallatin Valley TBID and marketing assistance
from Visit Big Sky, the Belgrade Chamber of Commerce and Yellowstone Country
Acito, of the Yellowstone Club, and a member of the Air Transportation
"This exciting news is the result of over five years of a collaborative
effort with the Bozeman Airport, the Air Transportation Committee and now
JetBlue. We are pleased to be a part of this community effort as we continue to
pursue additional nonstop flights to expand options for Montana
Schliem, of the Bozeman Area Chamber of Commerce, and a member of the Air
Transportation Committee: “Leadership at Bozeman Yellowstone International Airport,
JetBlue and #FLYBZN Air Transportation Committee have worked diligently to make
these flight’s come to fruition and we look forward to welcoming the inaugural
flight and the continuing economic impact it will have for all of our
Iskenderian, of Lone Mountain Land Company, and a member of the Air
Transportation Committee: “Through the Air Transportation Committee, the Big Sky and
Bozeman economic communities have again come together to pursue increased
flight options for travelers in Southwest Montana. This is a great day for the
Bozeman Airport and the region."

helping the community thrive.”
