JetBlue to Connect Syracuse & Fort Lauderdale-Hollywood

In sync with its seasonal plans, low-cost carrier JetBlue Airways Corp.JBLU recently announced non-stop flights between Syracuse Hancock International Airport (SYR) and Fort Lauderdale-Hollywood International Airport (FLL).

JetBlue will be offering one round-trip service every day starting Jan 13, 2016 through May 1, 2016. An introductory fare of $79 for one-way travel is presently on offer for customers booking for flights during that period.

JetBlue will fly EMBRAER 190 aircraft which offer two-by-two seating facility. Moreover, passengers will be able to enjoy better leg space along with complimentary free snacks and other refreshments. Passengers will also be able to access free DIRECTV channels and Sirius XM Holdings Inc.'s SIRI satellite radio service.

In order to boost its Florida gateways during winter months, JetBlue has decided to run 95 flights daily at the FLL Airport. Moreover, the company's South Florida region also serves as an important hub for JetBlue flights connecting Latin American cities.

Recent Reuters reports reveal JetBlue's plans to add a second charter flight service from New York's John F. Kennedy airport to Havana. This non-stop, round-trip service, starting Dec 1, 2015, will be offered on every Tuesday in coordination with Cuba Travel Services.

Hence, we believe that increased flight frequency coupled with low fares will enhance traveling options apart from boosting passenger revenues for JetBlue.

JetBlue currently sports a Zacks Rank #1 (Strong Buy). Other favorably ranked stocks in the same space are Ryanair Holdings plc RYAAY and Delta Air Lines DAL , both the stocks sporting the same Zacks Rank as JetBlue.
