JetBlue Airways plans to add four weekly nonstop flights between New York JFK and Liberia, Costa Rica, with services beginning on 17 November, subject to government approval.
Liberia, on the Pacific coast, will be JetBlue’s second destination in Costa Rica after San Jose, which is served daily from Orlando
“We’re delighted to be adding Liberia to our growing list of destinations and giving our customers access to the breathtaking Guanacaste beaches and natural parks,” remarked Chad Meyerson, director of global sales for JetBlue Airways. “Costa Rica and its people have much to offer and have been a great partner since we started flying to San Jose more than two years ago. We’re happy to be able to strengthen that relationship while expanding our footprint in Central America.”
JetBlue’s proposed schedule between New York and Liberia will see flights leave JFK at 09:40 and reaching Costa Rica at 14:05. The return flights depart Liberia at 15:00, landing in New York at 21:00. The service will operate on Tuesdays, Thursdays, Saturdays and Sundays with Airbus A320s.
