JetBlue has made the decision to cut all daytime flights at Bob Hope Airport, starting on January 6. As a result of falling revenues, which are caused by declining passenger activity, airport officials have approved an increase in parking fees. Now the low passenger counts will be brought even lower by JetBlue’s decision to pull out.
The cut flights include one to JFK International Airport in New York and another flight to Los Angeles. The airline will continue to operate their even flight to JFK International. Tamara Young, a spokesperson for the airline, said that customer demand is the primary factor in determining routes and flight schedules. The overall network for the airline is expanding, despite the cuts in Burbank. Young says their commitment to the Los Angeles area remains strong and they have plans to operate 40 daily flights during peak season.
