JetBlue has released plans to increase to 200 daily departures from Boston, including nonstop flights to Atlanta beginning March 30, 2017.

The route between Logan International Airport and Hartsfield-Jackson Atlanta International Airport will be JetBlue’s debut in Atlanta and its 63rd nonstop destination from Boston.

Flights between Atlanta and Boston will be operated on A320 aircraft, which seat up to 150 passengers, and will last an estimated 2 hours, 45 minutes.

Passengers may access over 100 channels of SIRIUSXM internet radio, 36 channels of DIRECTV programming on personal televisions, and Fly-Fi wireless internet, all complimentary.

Following the launch of the Atlanta route, JetBlue will release a fourth daily roundtrip flight from Boston to San Francisco beginning July 15, 2017 via JetBlue Mint.

Mint is JetBlue’s premium airline service, operated on A321 aircraft that include 16 Mint-class seats that recline to create an 80 inch (203cm) bed, 4 of which are mini-suites with sliding doors.

The 143 economy class seats on Mint have a pitch of 33 inches (84cm) in the main cabin and 37 inches (94cm) in extra space, slightly less spacious than the 34 inch (86cm) pitch in standard economy and 38 inch (96cm) pitch in extra space in JetBlue’s Airbus A320 fleet.

JetBlue will also be extending formerly seasonal Boston flights to Montego Bay and St. Thomas to be year round.

Executive Vice President of Commercial and Planning Marty St. George said: “After decades of being underserved by high-fare legacy carriers, Boston has an airline that is committed to offering the best service and most nonstop destinations of any other airline.”
