Jet Blue Airways Connects to Buffalo.

JetBlue Airways (Nasdaq:JBLU) today continues to expand in the Sunshine State with the addition of nonstop service between Orlando and three cities in the Northeast -- Buffalo and Rochester, NY, and Portland, ME. With these convenient new flights, JetBlue now offers its unique brand of low-fare service to 15 nonstop destinations from Orlando International Airport.
JetBlue will fly once-daily between Orlando and both Buffalo and Rochester beginning Nov. 15, 2007 and once-daily between Orlando and Portland, ME beginning Jan. 10, 2008. To celebrate its new routes, the award-winning airline is offering a sale fare of $69(a) each way to Buffalo and $79(a) each way to Rochester and Portland.

"Today we're proud to add nonstop flights from Buffalo, Rochester and Portland to Orlando just in time for snowbird season," said Marty St. George, JetBlue's vice president of network planning. "The customer response to our low-fare service in all three Northeast cities has been tremendous, so it just makes sense to offer more of the low-fare service our customers have been asking for."

Customers prefer JetBlue for its low fares, generous and complimentary name-brand snacks and its comfy leather seats. The low-cost carrier is home to the most legroom in coach and the most free live programming of any only airline -- 36 channels of DIRECTV(r) service plus more than 100 channels of XM Satellite Radio.

"Today's news is a grand slam for JetBlue and Rochester and Buffalo area residents," said Senator Charles Schumer. "JetBlue has stepped up to the plate to make efficient and affordable air service a reality for travelers across the Finger Lakes and Western New York regions, and local residents have once again proven a basic law of economics: when you offer top-shelf service at an affordable price, people scoop it up."
