JetBlue Airways has announced plans to add daily nonstop flights between Fort Lauderdale-Hollywood International Airport and Juan Santamaria International Airport in San Jose, Costa Rica, effective June 27, 2013. Flights are available from $129 one way from Fort Lauderdale to San Jose for travel between June 27 and August 8, 2013.
The Costa Rican Minister of Tourism, Allan Flores, joined JetBlue officials in making this announcement earlier today in a press conference at the Costa Rican Tourism Board (ICT) in San Jose. At the press conference in Costa Rica, Jeff Goodell, JetBlue’s Vice President of Government Affairs, commented: “As the Costa Rican community discovers JetBlue, complete with its ample legroom, free movies on the back of every seat, free snacks and beverages, as well as prized service, we’ve been able to grow and continue our solid trajectory in the country. Thanks to this we’re proud today to add the third JetBlue route in Costa Rica.”
“We begin the new year with this important piece of news which reiterates our clear airline attraction policy, which we’ve pushed hard, focusing our efforts in getting closer to the main tourism outbound markets. This new offer on JetBlue’s behalf materializes the negotiations done to Costa Rica’s benefit,” added Tourism Minister Allan Flores.
