JetBlue in Talks to Add Flights from U.S. to Dominican Republic

Negotiations with JetBlue Airways to establish direct flights from the U.S. to the Dominican Republic’s Samana peninsula are “very advanced,” said Fabeth Martinez Fernandez, executive director of Samana’s hotel association. “Nothing is concrete yet, [but] we are hoping to announce news of an agreement soon,” he said during a press conference at the Dominican Annual Travel Exchange (DATE) conference in Punta Cana.

JetBlue is expected to operate the direct flights from New York’s JFK airport to Juan Bosch International Airport in Samana’s El Catey province when an agreement is finalized.
