JetBlue starts Hardford to San Juan and Beyond

For those in Connecticut who need some rest and relaxation – stop complaining as there’s no need to drive to Boston to hit the beaches. Grab your sunglasses & swimwear and prepare to fly south.

JetBlue has launched a non-stop flight from Hartford-Bradley Intl (BDL) to San Juan, Puerto Rico. This non-stop by JetBlue (B6) makes it easier than ever to reach the American Caribbean via San Juan’s Luis Munoz Marin International Airport (SJU).  As a focus destination for the carrier, passengers can travel onward with easy connections in San Juan to St. Croix (STX) and St. Thomas (STT) in the US Virgin Islands.

Looking for a Taste of France and Dutch Culture? Grab your passport because JetBlue offers connecting flights to the French and Dutch Island of St. Maarten with flights to Princess Juliana International Airport (SXM). When you decide to return, it’s easier than ever to enter the United States at San Juan’s Luis Munoz Marin International Airport (SJU) as you don’t have to deal with the queues at Boston or New York’s JFK airport.

To celebrate the new service from Hartford to San Juan, flights are on sale through January 13, 2012 for as low as $139 each way for travel on Tuesdays and Wednesdays between January 19 and February 15, 2012.  The new flights will be operated using JetBlue’s Airbus A320 fleet.

“We are proud to support the strong business and family ties between Hartford and San Juan with this new nonstop service,” said John Checketts, director of route planning for JetBlue Airways.

“The mutual commitment between JetBlue and Bradley continues to grow. New travel options opening new destinations draw more customers, which benefits everyone,” said Mary Ellen Jones, Chair of the Connecticut Airport Authority. “With Connecticut’s special ties to Puerto Rico, I am confident that this non-stop service to San Juan will add another chapter to JetBlue’s success story in our state.”

Executive Director of the Puerto Rico Tourism Company, Mario Gonzalez Lafuente, is excited about the new service.  Lafuente commented, “Puerto Rico had a 4.1 percent increase in tourists during the fiscal year 2010-2011, as measured by hotel registrations. For the 2011-2012 season, we expect better results with more visitors heading this way to discover why Puerto Rico does it better. JetBlue’s new non-stop service between Hartford-Springfield’s Bradley International Airport (BDL) and San Juan’s Luis Munoz Marin International Airport (SJU) now provides additional flight options to travelers from one of our top markets in the East Coast to our Island.”
