JetBlue launches Orlando to San Jose, Costa Rica
JetBlue Airways is to broaden its Latin American presence with a new daily nonstop service to San Jose, Costa Rica. Service between Orlando International Airport (MCO) and Juan Santamaria International Airport (SJO) will begin on 26 March 2009, subject to Costa Rican government approval. San Jose is the airline's first destination in Central America, making Costa Rica the ninth country in the airline's route network.
"JetBlue remains committed to growing our Latin American and Caribbean destinations in the New Year and we are thrilled to offer Orlando residents the only nonstop daily service to San Jose," said JetBlue's EVP and chief commercial officer Robin Hayes. "Orlando remains a vital part of our route network as we continue to add direct flights to new international cities like Bogota and Nassau."
JetBlue will operate the Costa Rica service with its 100-seat Embraer 190s.
