Sixth JetBlue Destination in the Dominican Republic

JetBlue is keeping count with kick-off to their 73rd destination, Samana, Dominican Republic. The New York based carrier will operate the Airbus A320 aircraft between New York’s JFK Airport (JFK) and El Catey International Airport (AZS) with this new route, on Wednesdays and Saturdays. The new flights begin on November 14, 2012, to this emerging tourist destination.

John Checketts, Director of Network Planning for JetBlue, said, “Samana is one of the best kept secrets in the Dominican Republic, and one that offers great potential. With its tropical forest and beach combination, we believe this undiscovered paradise will be a pleasant surprise for many of our customers.” Checketts added, “As the country’s largest carrier, we are very pleased with the support we continue to receive from the island’s communities and glad to be able to keep adding destinations for visitors and residents of the Dominican Republic alike.”
