JetBlue Airways, New York’s Airline headquartered in Queens, announced today its plans to expand its services with yet another destination in the Dominican Republic, adding Samana starting November 14, 2012. Jet Blue, the Dominican Republic’s largest airline, will offer flights twice a week between John F. Kennedy International Airport (JFK) and El Catey International Airport (AZS). Flights will be available on Wednesdays and Saturdays and they will be the only service between the United States and this beautiful tourist destination. Vacationers can already book their flights which are already on sale for attractive fares of $169 (a) one way. These fares will apply for trips between November 14 and February 9, 2013.
Samana offers great potential and is one of the best kept secrets of the Dominican Republic. The combination of tropical forests and breathtaking beaches will for sure be a pleasant surprise for many of our customers in this undiscovered paradise,â€ said director of network planning for JetBlue, John Checketts. We are very pleased with the support we continue to receive from the island’s communities and as the country’s largest carrier, we are glad to be able to add a new destination for visitors of the Dominican Republic and residents alike.
