JetBlue has announced plans to add daily winter seasonal service between central Massachusetts and Southwest Florida.
The flights, according to a statement, will be from Worcester Regional Airport, under the code ORH to Southwest Florida International Airport in Fort Myers (RSW). New York City-based JetBlue also announced plans to provide daily year-round service from Worcester to Orlando International Airport, the release adds. Seats went on sale April 10 for as low as $34.
“We are proud to introduce even more options to connect our Massachusetts customers to the places they want to fly with more nonstop Florida service from Worcester,” JetBlue CEO Robin Hayes says in the release. “Customers can now much more easily travel back and forth to Florida with JetBlue’s low fares and award-winning service, including with daily flights to Fort Myers during the Red Sox Spring Training.”
The Worcester-Fort Myers flights are scheduled to begin Jan. 4, 2023. The route will initially launch with twice-weekly service and will increase to daily service starting in mid-February through the end of the Red Sox spring training. JetBlue is the official airline of the Red Sox.
“JetBlue is a dedicated member of Red Sox Nation, and we’re proud to extend our support for the team with more options for fans to get down to Fort Myers and cheer on the Sox throughout spring training,” JetBlue’s head of revenue and planning Dave Clark says in the release.
