JetBlue adds a Newark to Sarasota Airport route
NEW YORK–(BUSINESS WIRE)–JetBlue (NASDAQ: JBLU) today announced it is adding 30 new domestic routes to serve customers in markets where leisure and VFR (visiting friends and relatives) travel is showing some signs of strength.

- Growing relevance in JetBlue’s focus cities
- Launch Mint flights between Newark and LAX/SFO
- Playing to JetBlue’s strength in Florida with new point-to-point routes
