Virgin America moves in on Boston

Remember yesterday when we told you that Virgin America was throwing in the towel at making Chicago their next destination? Not a couple hours after our post went live the ladies at over at VX issued the formal press release: BOSTON will be the next city that the airline opens service to.

Commencing on February 12th of next year, flights will serve Los Angeles three times daily, San Francisco twice and cities in the Midwest zero times.

Boston‘s Logan airport, which appears to be more interested in generating competition than Chicago’s O’hare, is a main hub for American Airlines, US Airways, Jetblue and Delta, so you can imagine that routes on those carrier to the west coast will now super competitive and yes, cheaper. And that’s great news for east and west coasters alike.

We hope to see you in the Midwest soon, Virgin America.
