JetBlue Airways is expanding its schedule from Puerto Rico further with the addition of two more daily flights between San Juan and Fort Lauderdale.
The new flights are scheduled to begin in May 2012, when JetBlue Airways celebrates 10 years of service to Puerto Rico. In that decade, says JetBlue, it has grown to become the largest airline serving Puerto Rico in terms of available seat-mile capacity.
With its expanded schedule, JetBlue will offer up to six daily nonstop flights between its South Florida focus city at Fort Lauderdale-Hollywood International Airport and San Juan’s Luis Muñoz Marin International Airport, more than any other airline. Tickets for JetBlue’s expanded service are available for purchase at www.jetblue.com.
JetBlue’s added Fort Lauderdale service is just one in a series of upcoming expansion waves planned for its operation in San Juan.
On November 17, the airline will begin daily nonstop jet service from San Juan to St. Maarten. Then, on December 12, JetBlue will add daily nonstop jet service from San Juan to both St. Croix and St. Thomas in the U.S. Virgin Islands.
The airline’s growth at San Juan will continue into the new year, with JetBlue Airwways also adding nonstop service to Hartford, Connecticut’s Bradley International Airport from January 5.
From San Juan, JetBlue already offers service to Boston; New York JFK; the Florida cities of Jacksonville, Fort Lauderdale, Orlando and Tampa; and Santo Domingo in the Dominican Republic. The airline also serves the Puerto Rico destinations Aguadilla and Ponce, offering service from both cities to Orlando and New York JFK.
At Fort Lauderdale-Hollywood International Airport, where JetBlue is the second-largest airline in terms of travelers carried, dozens of daily departures are offered to cities across the U.S. including Austin, Texas; Boston; Los Angeles; New York; San Francisco; and Washington, as well as Cancun in Mexico; Nassau in The Bahamas; and Santo Domingo.
In addition, JetBlue was recently awarded preliminary government approval to expand its Fort Lauderdale network by launching daily nonstop service to Bogota, the capital of Colombia. The airline expects to announce flight details in the coming months, following receipt of final government approvals.
