Luis Rivera-Marín, Puerto Rico Tourism Company’s Executive Director; Robert Land, JetBlue’s SVP Government Affairs; Susan Kurland, Assistant Secretary of Transportation for Aviation and International Affairs; and Richard Golinowski, MWAA’s Airport Operations Manager, helped launch JetBlue’s latest route from Washington Reagan to San Juan.
- On 23 August, JetBlue commenced services from San Juan (SJU), Puerto Rico’s capital airport that is analysed this week, to the US federal capital’s downtown airport Washington Reagan, VA (DCA). Flights on the 2,500-kilometre route operate with daily frequencies using A320s. Rob Land, JetBlue’s SVP government affairs and associate general counsel, commented: “We’re very excited to launch this new service between two major capital cities and two key markets in the JetBlue network. The ability to provide this much-needed service between D.C. and San Juan is a long-sought opportunity we’re happy to be able to offer thanks to the DOT and the many individuals, companies and public officials in Puerto Rico and the mainland who supported our application for this exciting new service.”
