JetBlue to add a fourth route to Haiti

JetBlue’s continues to expand its footprint in the Caribbean, this time with new route to Haiti.

The carrier revealed plans to add non-stop service from its Orlando focus city to Haiti’s capital of Port-au-Prince. JetBlue says the route would launch in December, pending regulatory approvals, and would be flown with 100-seat Embraer E190 jets. The company adds “seats are expected to go out for sale in the coming weeks.”

The Orlando route would become JetBlue’s fourth to Port-au-Prince. The airline already flies to the airport from its bases at New York JFK, Boston and Fort Lauderdale.

“Service between Orlando and Port-au-Prince will provide a valuable link between Haiti’s capital city and many communities in central Florida that currently lack nonstop flights from their closest major airport,” John Checketts, JetBlue’s VP for network planning, says in a statement. “Now, with flights from four of our focus cities, JetBlue will connect more U.S. cities with Port-au-Prince than any other airline.”

The new Haiti route comes as JetBlue has increasingly stepped up its presence in the region during the past decade. The airline has added numerous new destinations and frequencies in the region, in part backfilling capacity dropped by bigger rivals – notably American – that have retrenched in the region in recent years.

Today, JetBlue says it operates nearly a third of its capacity in the Caribbean and Latin America.
