SAN JOSE (BCN) — JetBlue Airways returned to Mineta San Jose International Airport on Thursday with daily nonstop services to Boston Logan International Airport.

This flight is JetBlue’s only nonstop flight from San Jose. The airline had temporarily discontinued its service from the San Jose airport in April 2020 because of travel declines during the pandemic.
