JetBlue Adds 2 New Routes to Puerto Rico for Summer 2023

JetBlue announced two new routes from Puerto Rico, bringing more low-fare, high-quality flights to “La Isla del Encanto”.

Launching this summer, and out for sale today, JetBlue will now offer year-round service from Luis Muñoz Marín International Airport (SJU) in San Juan, Puerto Rico to Raleigh-Durham International Airport (RDU) in North Carolina, and from Rafael Hernández International Airport (BQN) in Aguadilla, Puerto Rico to Tampa International Airport (TPA) in Florida.

“As the largest airline in Puerto Rico, we are thrilled to continue diversifying our network and to further grow JetBlue’s presence on the island with the addition of these two new routes,” said Robin Hayes, chief executive officer, JetBlue.

“This growth will increase competition and choice for customers traveling to and from Puerto Rico and for travelers in Raleigh and Tampa, while also building on our commitment to support tourism on the island and connect family and friends. We look forward to delivering even more of the much-loved JetBlue experience – with our unique combination of low fares and award-winning service – to our customers traveling between Puerto Rico and the U.S. mainland following the successful completion of our combination with Spirit.”

“We’re excited about the news of additional JetBlue direct flights between Puerto Rico and the US mainland. These two new flights will help us to continue on the path of growth in our tourism sector. We look forward to building on JetBlue’s success in Puerto Rico,” said the governor of Puerto Rico, Pedro Pierluisi.

“The Puerto Rico Tourism Company is thrilled to announce along with our partner, JetBlue, the incorporation of these new routes. The expanded network connects two of Puerto Rico’s main airports to key markets in the continental United States providing travelers with even more options to explore and enjoy the diversity available on the island. We value the longstanding alliance between the Government of Puerto Rico and JetBlue, and look forward to continue providing excellence in the visitor experience, and increasing Tourism’s contribution to local economies”, said executive director of the Puerto Rico Tourism Company, Carlos Mercado Santiago.

This announcement coincides with JetBlue’s 21st anniversary of service in San Juan. In Puerto Rico, JetBlue currently offers service in its focus city of San Juan, as well as in Aguadilla and Ponce, operating an average of 35 departures from Puerto Rico per day. With the introduction of Raleigh, JetBlue will now offer service between Puerto Rico and 12 cities in the U.S. and the Caribbean.

The planned combination of JetBlue and Spirit will unlock long-term growth opportunities in Puerto Rico that would not be otherwise possible, offering more options for customers traveling to and from the island. Following the successful completion of the planned merger, JetBlue will be able to deliver its low-fare, award-winning service on more routes and to expand travel options in and out of Puerto Rico with new nonstop service to destinations that are not viable today.
