Effective May 28, 2015, JetBlue Airways will launch new nonstop service between New York's John F. Kennedy International Airport (JFK) and Nevada's Reno-Tahoe International Airport (RNO), it announced this week. The airline will be the only U.S. carrier to offer nonstop service between Reno-Tahoe and the East Coast.
"A nonstop link between Reno-Tahoe International Airport and New York City is long overdue," James Hnat, JetBlue's general counsel and executive vice president of legal and government affairs, said in a statement. "Customers will finally have easy access to Reno, beautiful Lake Tahoe, the great historic town of Truckee, Donner Lake, Tuolumne River, and the majestic Sierra Nevada Mountain range -- home to Yosemite National Park, Kings Canyon, Sequoia National Park, and two National Monuments. We are eager to bring the JetBlue Experience to Reno-Tahoe."
Reno-Tahoe is only the latest destination to join JetBlue's roster. The airline also recently launched service between Salt Lake City and Orlando, and between San Francisco and Las Vegas. And in June it will introduce service between Portland, OR, and Anchorage, AK.
