As the largest airline serving Boston Logan International Airport, today we reached a milestone with our first day operating 100 flights at the airport. To celebrate, our Boston Crewmembers created a 100-shaped human formation on the tarmac, symbolizing our commitment to the region, growth at the airport and dedication to serving our Boston Customers.
Since our flights first took to Boston’s skies in 2004, we’ve added an average of five new destinations per year. By June 2011, we plan to offer non-stop service to 42 destinations across the country and throughout the Caribbean and Mexico. No airline has ever served as many destinations as as have in Logan’s entire history as an airport.
Over the last two years, we’ve seen exponential growth in Boston, with a 30% increase in daily departures in the summer of 2010 versus 2009, and an additional 25% growth planned for this year. Four daily flights from Logan to Newark will begin May 4. Seasonal daily non-stop service to Portland, Ore. begins May 26. Summer service to Oakland, Calif. also resumes in May. On June 17, we’ll begin the only non-stop service from Boston to Santiago, D.R. three times weekly, subject to receipt of government approval.
