New York, NY (May 14, 2002) - JetBlue Airways (Nasdaq: JBLU) today announced sale fares between New York City`s John F. Kennedy International Airport (JFK) and San Juan, Puerto Rico from just $99* each way ($94* each way if booked at www.jetblue.com). The low-fare airline is scheduled to begin three daily nonstop flights between JFK and San Juan on May 30.
The sale fare must be booked by May 18 for travel through June 19. Travelers should book early, as seats are limited. All fares, including sale fares, are discounted $5 each way if booked via JetBlue`s web site, www.jetblue.com, by June 30.
“The JetBlue experience is about so much more than low fares,” said Dave Barger, President and COO of JetBlue. “It`s about friendly service and new planes with leather seats, and much more. But who can resist a sale fare between New York and Puerto Rico for less than $100?*”
JetBlue`s regular low fares on the route will range from $129* to $299* each way, which is up to 52% less than equivalent fares of other airlines serving the route nonstop from New York City.
