Great news for us in the Capital Region...

JetBlue flights will soon be flying out of Albany International Airport!

You'll love this news if you're like me and fly a fair amount each year. Actually if you don't fly that much, it may provide the opportunity to travel MORE due to the additional availability of flights, destinations, and it's low cost reputation. Not to mention (but I will) bringing more visitors and business here to the Albany area.

This is great news, giving those in our area the option of another carrier and more destinations, while hopefully, pushing other airlines that utilize the Albany International Airport to lower their fares.

Senator Charles Schumer and airport officials have been working hard to get the JetBlue, an airline that is considered a 'low-cost airline', to Albany.
