Sen. Schumer Pushes for JetBlue to Bring Nonstop, Daily Flights Back to Syracuse

By Staff


jetblueThe Syracuse Hancock International Airport, U.S. Senator Charles Schumer, and JetBlue Airlines have announced JetBlue will resume seasonal, daily nonstop flights from Syracuse to Fort Lauderdale, fora limited time, beginning January 13, 2016.

The service will run until May 1, 2016, and tickets will go on sale Wednesday Sept. 30.

JetBlue initially stopped its daily, nonstop flights from Syracuse in 2009; however, due to increased demand, Schumer pushed for the airline to bring its low-cost service options back to the airport.

Accordingn to Schumer, the additional flights between Syracuse and Florida, especially during the months when people are traveling south the most, will not only provide residents with more options, but will also help increase competition, and lower prices, for customers.

“We would like to thank Sen. Schumer, and JetBlue, for their continued investment in our airport, and community,” Christina Callahan C.M., executive director of the airport, stated. “As one of our top leisure destinations, our customers will now have even more options to Florida, and with the number of connections out of Ft. Lauderdale and its port, the JetBlue network provides easy access to the Caribbean and South America.”

In addition, “The Syracuse Hancock International Airport is a first-class facility, and I am pleased to see it continue to grow,” Mayor Stephanie Miner said. “I thank Sen. Schumer for his continued advocacy for the airport, and its needs.”
