ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. (AP) — JetBlue Airways will be offering a non-stop flight from Albuquerque to New York City starting this spring.

Albuquerque Mayor Richard Berry made the announcement Wednesday during his state of the city address. The mayor's office says the deal stems from months of talks between Berry and JetBlue executives.

The mayor calls it a huge step for the city that will add new business and tourism opportunities.

The non-stop, daily flights to JFK International Airport are scheduled to begin in April.

City officials say Albuquerque hasn't had regularly scheduled service into the New York area since service to Newark, N.J., ended in 2008.
