American low-cost airline JetBlue has announced that it will launch a new flight between Orlando and San Jose in Costa Rica.
The New York-based carrier will commence the service to Juan Santamaria International Airport on March 26th next year, providing it earns approval from the Costa Rican government operating authority.
Commenting on the new flight, JetBlue’s first to Central America, the airline’s vice-president and chief commercial officer Robin Hayes said he was "thrilled" to be offering the only non-stop daily service to San Jose from Orlando.
"Orlando remains a vital part of our route network as we continue to add direct flights to new international cities like Bogota and Nassau," he said.
The flights to Colombia and the Bahamas are part of JetBlue’s ongoing expansion plans, with the San Jose service set to become the airline’s 22nd non-stop destination.
JetBlue announced last week that its traffic in November had fallen by 7.8 per cent over the course of November compared to the same period last year.
