JetBlue flights are coming to Worcester

JetBlue Airways plans to start flying out of Worcester Regional Airport in November, launching the first regularly scheduled passenger service at the beleaguered airport since Direct Air shut down a year ago.

JetBlue will offer two daily flights from Worcester to Florida, one to Orlando and one to Ft. Lauderdale, starting Nov. 7 on a 100-seat Embraer 190 aircraft. JetBlue chief executive Dave Barger was at Worcester Airport Wednesday morning for the announcement, along with Governor Deval Patrick and Lieutenant Governor Timothy Murray, who is a former mayor of Worcester.
