JetBlue Airways announced today that in mid-August it is adding four flights to its Long Beach Airport (LGB) schedule, including a new destination: Reno/Tahoe. The other three flights are to existing destinations JetBlue serves from Long Beach, including San Francisco, Oakland and Las Vegas.
The airline was recently allocated three new flight slots at LGB, bringing its total to 35. According to JetBlue’s Long Beach manager, Lou Anthony, the number of current daily flights “fluctuates from 19 to 25. When the new service begins in August we will be at 29 or 30.”
The Reno/Tahoe flights that begin August 15 will bring the number of destinations JetBlue serves from LGB to 12 – all nonstop. One-way fares to Reno are on sale now and start at $59.
In a statement announcing the new service, JetBlue’s vice president of network planning, Dave Clark, said: “Since JetBlue first came to town in 2001, when LBG had little commercial service, Long Beach has been the cornerstone of JetBlue’s success and growing route map in the western U.S. With its convenient and unique open-air terminal and easy access to many Southern California communities and attractions, Long Beach is a top choice for JetBlue travelers. We’re thrilled to offer our customers here even more convenience and options with new service and new flights.”
