JetBlue Airways plans to add non-stop daily service from Newark Liberty International Airport (EWR) to Santiago, Dominican Republic (STI) from 1 May this year.
“This new service will help reconnect families and friends with fares designed to inspire more travel,” explained JetBlue president Robin Hayes. “New Jersey is home to the second largest Dominican population in the US after New York, so eliminating the need to cross two rivers in order to get to the airport [creates] significant time savings for our customers.”
Flights from Newark will depart at 08:40 and reach Santiago at 12:29. In the opposite direction, takoff from Santiago will be at 13:25, with touchdown at Newark at 17:24 (all times local).
JetBlue’s flights to Santiago will be operated year-round with Airbus A320s.
