Flights will operate daily between Memorial Day and Labor Day weekend using 100-seat Embraer E190 aircraft. Schedules and fares are to be announced in January.

The service is meant to complement JetBlue’s year-round service to the Massachusetts island operated via Boston through its codeshare partner, Cape Air. Cape Air also codeshares with JetBlue on flights to neighboring Nantucket, Hyannis and Provincetown out of Boston.

“We’re thrilled to be bringing JetBlue service to Martha’s Vineyard next summer,” said Dave Barger, JetBlue’s CEO, at a ceremony today at Martha’s Vineyard Airport. “With our nonstop flights to New York, connections nationwide, plus the top-notch service provided by our crewmembers, we think this new route will be a big win for islanders and summer residents alike.”

JetBlue will be the second major airline to serve Martha’s Vineyard. US Airways Express operates seasonal service to the island from LaGuardia Airport (LGA) in New York and Washington-Reagan National (DCA).
