JetBlue Airways said it had launched new service linking San Antonio International Airport in Texas to New York’s John F. Kennedy International and Boston Logan International airports.

The first flights from the two East coast cities landed Sunday afternoon.

The New York-based carrier said it would operate the flights with a mix of Airbus A320 and A220 aircraft.

The airline cited the “growing demand” for travel between the southwest and the Northeast in launching the routes.  It also noted that San Antonio was Boston’s largest unserved destination.

The City of San Antonio, as it is officially known, is the seventh most populous city in the United States and second most populous in Texas.  It is known for numerous historic monuments and cultural attractions including the Alamo, an 18th century mission where the Battle of the Alamo took place in 1836.

Other attractions include the San Fernando Cathedral, the Hemisphere, and the Spanish Governor’s Palace.  The Fairmont Hotel, built in 1906, is the city’s second oldest and is cited as one of the heaviest buildings ever moved intact.  It was relocated over a period of four days in 1985 and cost $650,000 at that time to move.
