JetBlue Launches Nonstop Flights to Kansas City from Boston and JFK

March 28, 2022

JetBlue yesterday announced it has officially launched service from New York’s John F. Kennedy International Airport (JFK) and Boston’s Logan International Airport (BOS) to Kansas City International Airport (MCI).

Enabled by JetBlue’s Northeast Alliance (NEA), Kansas City service expands the airline’s presence in the Midwest, while diversifying and advancing its New York and Boston focus city strategy. 

Kansas City 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.

“Our customers and crewmembers have been asking for years to add flights to the Midwest and we listened,” said Andrea Lusso, vice president network planning, JetBlue. “We are very excited to add Kansas City to our growing network and connect the Northeast to the heart of America by introducing our low fares and outstanding service and providing customers access to our New York and Boston focus city networks.”

Kansas City is a cosmopolitan, cultural metropolitan area of two million people. Many know and love the destination for its world-famous barbecue, sultry jazz, world-champion sports and romantic fountains, all which can be experienced throughout the metro area in addition to its trademark Midwestern hospitality.

Lately, however, it's the city's remarkable renaissance that is driving new interest in the destination. More than $10 billion has been poured into the city, reinventing the visitor experience from the ground up in regards to museums, hotels, restaurants, attractions and more.

"On behalf of KC's hospitality community of 48,000 strong, it is my distinct pleasure to welcome JetBlue to the Heart of America," said Visit KC President & CEO Kathy Nelson. "Kansas City International Airport acts as the front door to our growing bi-state region, and the exciting addition of JetBlue to our market is just one more sign that the recovery of the travel and tourism industry is on the upswing. Strengthening our airlift is critical to our sales and outreach to the meetings and convention industry, and we look forward to spreading this positive news to our clients."

For millions of passengers each year, Kansas City serves as mid-America’s link to the world. Drawing customers, cargo and commerce from Missouri, Kansas, Iowa, Nebraska and beyond, the airport is a major catalyst in the growth and development of the region and plays a significant role in bringing in new business, conventions and tourists to the area.

Now underway is the building of a new $1.5 billion, 39-gate, single terminal slated to open March 2023.

“We feel JetBlue has made an excellent choice in adding Kansas City to their growing network, and that travelers in the region will respond well,” said Pat Klein, Kansas City Director of Aviation. “Our team is constantly working to enhance access to the US and beyond for our citizens. We’re happy that JetBlue is our new partner to help support that effort.”
