WINDSOR LOCKS, Conn. (WTIC Radio) - As most airlines shrink their flight schedules amid the coronavirus pandemic, JetBue has announced four new non-stop flights from Bradley International Airport in Windsor Locks.

Starting Nov. 17, the airline will begin service to Cancun, Mexico.

On Dec. 18, the airline will launch flights to Los Angeles, Las Vegas and San Francisco.

The airline praised the state for revising its COVID-19 travel advisory to allow people to show proof of a negative test result within 72 hours, instead of quarantining for two weeks.

JetBlue says it is poised to become the largest air carrier serving Connecticut by 2021.
