Jet Blue Picks Providence over Worcester

Saturday, July 14, 2012

 

JetBlue is set to come to the T.F. Green Airport in Providence, raising questions whether the popular low cost airline will be coming to the Worcester Regional Airport as well.

The Worcester Airport has been without a commercial airline carrier since Direct Air abruptly cancelled its flights and then subsequently filed bankruptcy.  

In an exclusive report, GoLocalProvidence confirmed that Jet Blue will become the newest airline at T.F. Green, after nine months of courting by Rhode Island state officials. An announcement is expected on Wednesday.

While JetBlue officials have also toured the Worcester airport as recently as two months ago, and it was reportedly under consideration by the airline, officials from both Massport and the city indicated that there is no announcement planned for Worcester.

Sharon Jones, a spokesperson for JetBlue, said that JetBlue was looking forward to making an announcement in Providence soon. When asked about Worcester, Jones said
“We don’t have an announcement at this time. However, we are always scouting out new opportunities.”

Andy Davis, director of the Worcester airport said that while he was encouraged that Massport had visited the Worcester airport, he had not heard anything official regarding the airline’s decision regarding Worcester.

Matthew Brelis, Director of Media Relations for Massport, said that Massport “talks all the time with carriers about service to Worcester.

“When we have something to announce, we will make an announcement,” he said.

Officials from the Mayor’s office declined to comment until an official announcement is made.
