IMG_8304JetBlue Airways announced the launch of new service between Atlanta and Boston. The route marks the carrier’s entry in the Georgian capital, which becomes the carrier’s 101st destination.

JetBlue will operate the route five times on a daily basis. Flights will depart Hartsfield-Jackson Atlanta International Airport at 7 a.m., 9:54 a.m., 12:30 p.m., 4:59 p.m., and 7:40 p.m., arriving at Boston’s Logan International Airport at 9:37 a.m., 12:33 p.m., 3:09 p.m., 7:43 p.m., and 10:24 p.m., respectively. Flights from Boston to Atlanta are scheduled to depart at 6:10 a.m., 8:45 a.m., 1:20 p.m., 4 p.m., and 8:05 p.m., and will arrive at 9:07 a.m., 11:43 a.m., 4:14 p.m., 6:55 p.m., and 10:58 p.m.

The airline said that Atlanta was a “top-requested destination” of its Boston customers.

JetBlue will operate the service using Airbus A320 aircraft, equipped with 42 seats in Even More Space, the airline’s premium economy lite section, and 108 seats in coach.  Premium economy lite-seats are 17.8” wide, and have a pitch of 38” to 39”.

JetBlue attempted to enter the Atlanta market in 2003 but withdrew within several months after failing to compete with Delta Air Lines and AirTran Airways.

Atlanta is JetBlue’s 63rd destination from Boston. The carrier currently operates over 150 daily flights from Boston Logan, and said it expects to reach 200 in the near future.
