NEW YORK – JetBlue Airways Corp. will provide twice-daily nonstop service to Orlando International Airport and one daily flight to Fort Lauderdale/Hollywood International Airport beginning Thursday, Nov. 29.

JetBlue President and CEO Dave Barger joined Gov. Lincoln D. Chafee, R.I. Airport Corporation board chair Dr. Kathleen C. Hittner, Warwick Mayor Scott Avedisian and others at the Statehouse on Wednesday morning to make the announcement.

“With our new nonstop service to Florida from Providence, we are providing even more options for an easy-access airport to the places our customers want to go, and we believe this added convenience will introduce and foster even more loyal fans of JetBlue throughout the Ocean State,” said Barger in a statement.

Chafee said he believed the addition of JetBlue would have positive effects throughout the state, including the addition of new air service and jobs. “JetBlue service makes T.F. Green Airport, in the heart of Warwick’s growing transportation hub and regional connectivity, an even more appealing option for the traveling public.”

“With today’s economy, it’s particularly important that travelers have the affordable options and good customer service that JetBlue offers its customers,” said Avedesian in a statement. “We look forward to JetBlue’s success here in Warwick.”

As part of the celebration, JetBlue uniformed crewmembers – all Rhode Island natives – lined the Statehouse steps during the announcement.

To commemorate the addition of JetBlue service to T.F. Green – the 75th “BlueCity” – customers can book flights between Providence and Orlando or Fort Lauderdale/Hollywood for as low as $75 one way. The special fares are available for travel between Nov. 29 and Dec. 12.
