For months, Schumer has been a proponent for the addition of JetBlue in Albany, saying it will allow not only allow more options for travelers, but with competition, it could lead to lower-cost flights.

JetBlue's service is expected to begin in 2015 with Florida, including Orlando and Fort Lauderdale being key destinations for the airline.

I am certainly excited to hear this news!  As more develops we will keep you posted!
