Long Islanders will be able to fly JetBlue from Islip’s Long Island MacArthur Airport (ISP) this summer.

For the first time, the New York-headquartered airline will operate flights from the regional airport with the launch of 3 routes to popular vacation spots in Florida.

“Long Island is an integral part of the New York Metro area, and we are excited to bring our award-winning service to customers in this community,” said Dave Jehn, vice president of network planning and airline partnerships at JetBlue.

Here’s everything you need to know about JetBlue’s arrival in Long Island.

Fly From Islip To Florida With JetBlue

JetBlue’s first flights from Islip will take off on October 24, 2025.

The first 2 flights on this date will depart for Orlando (MCO) at 11:15 a.m. and West Palm Beach (PBI) at 2:40 p.m.

The following day, JetBlue will connect Islip and Fort Lauderdale (FLL) with a unique nonstop service when its first flight between the 2 airports departs at 12:20 p.m.

Destination Start DateFrequency

Orlando (MCO) October 24, 2024Daily 
West Palm Beach (PBI)October 24, 2024Tuesdays, Thursdays, Fridays, and Sundays

While Frontier and Southwest already fly from Islip to Orlando and West Palm Beach, it’s likely travelers in the area would happily forgo their ultra-low-cost model in favor of flying JetBlue with its award-winning in-flight experience, including free Wi-Fi for all passengers!

JetBlue’s arrival to Long Island means loyal customers of the airline will no longer have to travel to JFK, La Guardia, or Newark to fly to Florida.

“Our hometown airport is convenient, has efficient security lines, and provides an overall stress-free travel experience,” said Shelley LaRose-Arken, commissioner for Long Island MacArthurt Airport. “Long Islanders have waited for New York’s hometown airline, JetBlue, for 24 years, and this is a great day for our community and MacArthur Airport.”

Tickets for the new routes are on sale now, with introductory, limited-time fares starting at $49 one-way!

Hot Tip:

Don’t forget: instead of using cash, you can also book JetBlue flights by redeeming points through its TrueBlue loyalty program.

Final Thoughts

JetBlue is now offering its popular service and affordable fares to Islip, providing Long Islanders with a convenient option to escape to Florida for some winter sunshine.

Here’s to JetBlue’s success at Islip and many more routes to come!
