JetBlue announced its new service to Steamboat Springs, Colorado, debuted Saturday with the arrival of the inaugural flight from Florida.

The airline will offer nonstop winter seasonal service to Yampa Valley Regional Airport in Colorado from Fort Lauderdale-Hollywood International Airport in Florida, Logan International Airport in Boston and Long Beach Airport in California.
