JetBlue now flies nonstop between Newark Liberty International Airport (EWR) and Punta Cana International Airport (PUJ).
The new service was launched on Friday, November 20, the airline said in a statement.
“This launch reinforces JetBlue’s commitment to the Dominican Republic and is part of JetBlue’s strategy to serve customers in markets where recreational trips and trips to visit family and friends show signs of strength,” the company says.
The route allows JetBlue “the opportunity to generate revenue, re-commission aircraft that would otherwise be idle, and add more flight opportunities for JetBlue crew members,” the statement said.
Days of operation vary, according to the airline.
