The head honcho at JetBlue—CEO David Barger—has been completing layovers at each and every of his airline’s destinations in celebration of the airline’s first decade in business. There’s probably a lot of hand shaking and airport tours taking place at most, but it looks like those at Austin-Bergstrom International Airport got a little extra information.

Last week during his visit to Texas, JetBlue’s CEO mentioned that the airline might be looking at new routes from Austin in the near future. Specifically Washington and Cancun were mentioned, so if you need still need to plan that winter vacation you might want to watch for an official announcement.

By the end of 2010, JetBlue will be doing its thing at 63 cities, but that doesn’t mean they want to stop there. They're anxious to add even more cities and destinations to their route map. Apparently people have been asking for a San Jose to Austin route, so maybe JetBlue can finally get their WiFi working a little better to launch a brand new nerd bird.

There’s no official word on new flights from Austin just yet, but it sounds like something could be finalized by the end of the year. We’ll be looking forward to Cancun, as it’s only a couple hours away from Austin—weekend trip anyone?
