MIAMI – Today, JetBlue (B6) has confirmed that their brand new Airbus A220 will enter service on April 26th from Boston to Tampa.
B6 1391 will take off from Boston (BOS) at 4:32PM and land in Tampa (TPA) approximately three hours later.
The flight will not only mark the entry of service of a new aircraft, but also marks a new era for JetBlue as it begins to renew its fleet and increase their offerings and partnerships.
The newest addition to the JetBlue fleet is designed to be a replacement for the airline’s aging Embraer E190 aircraft.

Additionally, the new aircraft type offers passengers larger windows and overhead bins and Collins Meridian seats in a 2-3 configuration.
While the aircraft does not feature mint seats, 140 seats in a combination of regular economy and comfort plus seats are available to passengers.
One of JetBlue’s hallmark features, nationwide internet connectivity, will also be available on their Airbus A220s by using Thales AVANT and ViaSat-2 technology.
