From Mid-Hudson News.com:
JetBlue Airways is for now planning on sticking with its two daily flights to Florida from Stewart Airport, just west of Newburgh. The airline flies one flight a day each to Orlando and Fort Lauderdale. At some point it would like to consider expanding, but for now, officials say they are satisfied with the level of service they provide to the Hudson Valley. If and when they decide to expand, one city they would consider is Las Vegas. In fact, JetBlue Northeast Regional Manager Susan Gorski told MidHudsonNews.com in an exclusive interview that airport officials have pitched them to cover that destination city. “We would have to have enough traffic to sustain that; 150 people on a daily basis,” she said. “I know our folks do a lot of research before they go into a market because when we go into a market, we are committed to it and don’t want to go in and pull out of a market.” Read the entire article at Mid Hudson News.
