Jet Blue Airways will launch non-stop service from San Juan to Chicago beginning Nov. 20. Jet Blue currently offers non-stop flights to San Juan from 14 destinations, 10 in the continental U.S. and four in the Caribbean. JetBlue will also launch non-stop service between San Juan and Punta Cana and Santiago, Dominican Republic, in May.
Flights will depart from San Juan’s Luis Munoz International Airport, recently privatized through a 40-year lease awarded to Aerostar Airport Holdings by the government’s Ports Authority. The airport is the Caribbean’s busiest airport, serving nearly 9 million passengers annually. Aerostar has pledged to invest 46 million to improve and enhance facility.
