CHICAGO, Illinois, Monday November 25, 2013, CMC – US airline JetBlue has launched its first Caribbean service from Chicago, Illinois.
According to JetBlue, while the airline has a “strong Caribbean network from New York, this is its first foray into the Caribbean market” from the “Windy City.”
“Our new service will connect Chicagoans to sunny San Juan,” said JetBlue’s president and chief executive officer Dave Barger in a statement issued here at the weekend.
“This new route will provide convenient service and a less expensive option for those seeking to visit friends and family on the island or travelling for business or pleasure,” he added.
From Puerto Rico, Barger said JetBlue offers direct service to 17 destinations, with connections to Punta Cana, Santiago and Santo Domingo in the Dominican Republic, and St Croix, St Maarten and St Thomas.
