(NECN: Scot Yount, Worcester, Mass.) - It is official: JetBlue Airlines has added Worcester Regional Airport to its growing list. JetBlue now flies to 80 cities, eight of which are in New England.
With pomp, circumstance and fanfare, JetBlue brought its newest aircraft in from New York to make the grand announcement.
The flights to Orlando and Fort Lauderdale begin on November 7, and those flights are on sale!
Massport and JetBlue say there will be at least 15 jobs added here and more in the future. Air Traffic control will be necessary. Massport is working with the FAA to make sure the tower is manned.
In addition, safety has been increased here to accommodate passenger jets.
JetBlue brass credit state and local officials with convincing the airline that Worcester, New England's second largest city, would be a good fit for JetBlue, despite the fact that many airlines have opened business here, only to fail.
