The low-cost carrier is expected to fly into Savannah on Thursday to begin daily nonstop service to New York's JFK International and Boston's Logan International airports, operating out of Gate 9 at Savannah/Hilton Head International Airport.
Airport Commission Chairman Sylvester Formey said bringing the airline to Savannah has been in the works for a long time.
The Savannah Morning News reports (http://bit.ly/1gkrw34) that the first flight from JFK is expected to arrive in Savannah shortly after 9:30 a.m. JetBlue, Savannah and Hilton Head Island officials will be on the flight — along with regular passengers — and expect to hold a press conference upon landing.
