Before the pandemic, New York was the third-most popular destination from Kansas City, reaching nearly 700 daily passengers each way. Boston was also increasing in popularity, with more than 250 travellers.

Pat Klein, director of Kansas City’s Aviation Department, believes that the addition Missouri’s largest city highlights the region’s position as the “economic engine in the heart of America”.

“While we are always excited about new carriers, I am thrilled to welcome JetBlue as one of our partners at KCI. With new nonstops to New York and Boston, our flying public in Missouri, Kansas, and beyond will have more access to vital business and cultural offerings in the Northeast, more Royals victories in the American League East, and to JetBlue’s destination network,” she adds.

The service is set to launch in 2021, with flight schedules expected to be published over the next few months.
