Minnesota travelers have another airline option from MSP – JetBlue

The low-cost airline landed for the first time in the Twin Cities on Thursday.

Airline choices at Minneapolis St. Paul International Airport are expanding as JetBlue landed in the Twin Cities for the first time on Thursday.

The New York-based budget airline completed its inaugural flight from Boston in the morning, touching down just before 9 a.m. at MSP.

Initially, the airline will operate three daily trips between the Twin Cities and Boston's Logan International Airport, one of the top destinations for Minnesota travelers.

MSP was the last major airport in America not served by JetBlue, which as of 2016 was the sixth largest airline in the U.S., serving almost 100 destinations.

It now operates around 1,000 daily flights, carrying 40 million passengers annually.

For Twin Cities travelers, it says in a press release that JetBlue offers "the most legroom in coach, complimentary gate-to-gate, high-speed Fly-Fi internet, and free unlimited snacks."

The Metropolitans Airports Commission, which operates MSP, said that it's been pursuing JetBlue for a decade.

While Boston is its only destination right now, JetBlue officials said on Thursday that should it prove a success, it'll likely add another route from the Twin Cities, most likely to Fort Lauderdale or Orlando, the Star Tribune reports.

Delta, Sun Country and Spirit also fly to Boston from MSP.
