JetBlue flies Boston, San Juan

JetBlue Airways continues to expand its presence at Boston’s Logan International Airport with the launch of new daily nonstop service to San Juan, Puerto Rico. Flights to San Juan, the low fare carrier’s 22nd destination served nonstop from Boston, will operate for the peak winter season through April 30, 2007. To celebrate this new service, JetBlue is offering a low sale fare of $85(a) each way between Boston and San Juan; regular fares range between $129(a) and $399(a) each way.

“We’re thrilled to be giving our customers more of the service they’ve been asking for,” said David Neeleman, JetBlue’s Founder and CEO. “Our new nonstop flights to San Juan make it easier than ever to experience the beauty and rich culture of Puerto Rico. And with our existing nonstop flights from Boston to sunny spots in the Bahamas, Florida, California, Arizona and Nevada, JetBlue will really help make your winter fly by.”

In addition to the low-fare carrier’s seasonal nonstop service, JetBlue provides Boston customers with convenient year-round connecting service to three cities in Puerto Rico—Aguadilla, Ponce, and San Juan through New York or Orlando. JetBlue also offers Boston customers daily connections to Aruba, Bermuda, Cancun, Mexico; and Santiago in the Dominican Republic via New York.
