JetBlue Airways announced the launch of operations at Boise Airport in Idaho, the 31st state to be served by the airline.

The New York-based carrier will introduce non-stop seasonal service from John F. Kennedy International Airport to Boise on Tuesday afternoon.  JetBlue will operate the flight four times per week through Labor Day and will resume seasonal service to Boise in the summer of 2022.

Boise, the capital of and most populous city in Idaho, is located on the Boise River in the southwestern part of the state, about 41 miles (66 kilometers) east of the Oregon border. The city is 2,704’ (824 m) above sea level.

The flights will be the only non-stop service to the capital city from the Northeast United States.

JetBlue said the introduction of the new service demonstrates that it is “connecting more people to the places they want to go.”

“Boise is one of the fastest growing cities in the U.S. and our new flights land at the perfect time to meet growing demand with the only nonstop service between Idaho’s capital and the Northeast,” said Andrea Lusso, the airline’s vice president of network planning.

The city’s downtown area is its cultural center, known for a variety of shops and restaurants. Visitors can see the Idaho State Capitol, the classic Egyptian Theatre, the Zoo Boise, and the Boise Art Museum as well as the Basque Block, which showcases the city’s Basque heritage.
