JetBlue Airways jumps into Port-au-Prince from Orlando

JetBlue Airways launched flights between Orlando and Port-au-Prince on 14 December, with a ribbon cutting ceremony held at the US airport to open the 1,427-kilometre route. Among those speaking at the event was Josh Goldwitz, Director Airport Services & Planning, JetBlue Airways. The carrier is poised to operate the route daily.

  • JetBlue Airways commenced flights between Orlando (MCO) and Port-au-Prince (PAP) on 14 December, the carrier’s second route from Florida to the Haitien capital after Fort Lauderdale. “Haiti is a dynamic destination and we are very excited to connect the Haitien community from Orlando to Port-au-Prince,” said Joshua Goldwitz, the airline’s Airport Manager. Scheduled to be operated daily on the airline’s fleet of A320s, JetBlue will face direct competition on the 1,427-kilometre sector from Sunrise Airways, with it operating a six times weekly service between the two airports on its only 737-800 which is configured with 168 seats. The latter carrier only launched flights between Orlando and Port-au-Prince on 18 October. Along with Orlando and Fort Lauderdale, JetBlue also operates to Port-au-Prince from Boston and New York JFK.
