JetBlue Airways, Logan International Airport’s largest carrier, will start flying between the two cities three times a day on May 1.

Spirit Airlines will start flying the route once a day on March 22.

Dallas/Fort Worth International Airport is a new destination for JetBlue, the largest metropolitan area in the country it isn’t currently serving. The airline said it had nothing to do with American’s bankruptcy.

“We had this on the books for some time,’’ said spokesman Mateo Lleras.

Boston is the first Dallas/Fort Worth connection JetBlue has announced.

Spirit, which already flies from Dallas/Fort Worth to Fort Lauderdale, Fla., Las Vegas, and Chicago, is also expanding from there to Orlando, Atlanta, and New York’s LaGuardia Airport.
