Low-cost carrier JetBlue has announced that it has introduced three more flights between Boston and Latin America and the Caribbean. The U.S. airline has added Liberia, Costa Rica; Puerto Plata, Dominican Republic; and Saint Lucia to its growing list of destinations in the region.
JetBlue claims it is the largest airline at Boston Logan with non-stop flights to 54 destinations in the U.S., Caribbean and Latin America.
“We also offer customers more destinations in the Caribbean than any other airline as we know how important it is to getaway and enjoy well-deserved time off,” said Scott Laurence, senior vice president, airline planning, JetBlue.
All three flights are scheduled for Saturdays. The flight to Liberia will depart Boston at 7:00 a.m. and arrive in Costa Rica at 11:38 a.m. The return flight will depart the same day at 12:35 p.m, arriving in Boston at 7:00 p.m.
Destinations in Latin America and the Caribbean now make up almost one-third of JetBlue‘s network. The airliner has routes to almost every important destination in the region, including the Bahamas, Barbados, the Dominican Republic, Jamaica, Mexico and the Cayman Islands.
“JetBlue’s continued expansion in the Caribbean market brings the number of nonstop international destinations from Boston Logan to 40, which is up from 28 eight years ago,” said Ed Freni, Director of Aviation for Massport.
