JetBlue announces it will offer service this winter holiday season to Boston from Santo Domingo. This route is subject to government approval. The airline has also said it will add more flights on existing routes from New York to Puerto Plata, Santiago and Santo Domingo, again filling in for AA that is suffering from high fuel costs, older airplanes, and high labor costs.
The once a day Boston "holiday shuttle" will test the market in December and January.
The airline also has plans to bolster its frequent service between New York's John F. Kennedy International Airport and the Dominican Republic by adding a fourth daily departure to Santiago, a third daily departure to Santo Domingo, and a second daily departure to Puerto Plata over the holiday season.
"The Dominican Republic is dedicated to supporting all of JetBlue's efforts to provide the Caribbean with additional air service," said Dominican Republic Vice Minister of Tourism Magaly Toribio. "JetBlue's new flights from Boston and San Juan to our capital city, Santo Domingo, will help meet the growing demand of visitors and enhance our collective economies," she said.
