JetBlue requests to fly to Aruba

New York’s low-fare hometown airline has requested authority from the U.S. Department of Transportation to provide international nonstop service to Aruba. Pending approval from both governments, the proposed service from John F. Kennedy International Airport would operate with daily Airbus A320 service to Aruba planned to begin September 15, 2006.

In the six years since its launch, JetBlue Airways has focused on creating a new airline category—an airline that offers value, service and style. Based out of New York City, the low-cost carrier currently serves 37 destinations with more than 400 flights daily.

Onboard JetBlue, customers enjoy roomy leather seats and 36 channels of free DIRECTV programming, the most live TV available on any airline.

On flights longer than two hours, a selection of first-run movies and bonus features from FOX InFlight is also available. JetBlue offers customers generous brand name snacks and beverages, including freshly brewed Dunkin’ Donuts coffee, and delicious wines selected by the airline’s Low Fare Sommelier, Josh Wesson from Best Cellars.

On overnight flights from the West, the airline now offers Shut-Eye Service, with a Shut-Eye Kit designed exclusively for JetBlue by Bliss Spa and other special amenities including a “good morning” hot towel service.


With JetBlue, all seats are assigned, all travel is ticketless, all fares are one-way, and an overnight stay is never required.
