Air carrier JetBlue has launched service to Samana, its sixth destination in the Dominican Republic.

The move will now provide the only nonstop service between the US and Samana, with flights originating from New York City’s John F Kennedy Airport and heading to Samana’s President Juan Bosch International Airport on Wednesdays and Saturdays.

“Samana is a beach paradise in the Dominican Republic, a secret worth discovering,” said Scott Laurence, JetBlue’s vice president of network planning and partnerships. “Samana is a destination we’ve long had our eye on; today we thank the Dominican government and communities for the support we continue to receive.”

The flights depart JFK at 8:20 AM, and return from Samana at 2:05 PM.

As part of the launch, JetBlue is making a computer and book donation to the Liceo Manuela Mullix Fermin school outside of Samana.

JetBlue also serves La Romana, Puerto Plata, Punta Cana, Santiago and Santo Domingo with service to Boston, Fort Lauderdale/Hollywood, New York, Orlando and San Juan.

“We are very pleased, as the country’s largest carrier, to add more options for locals and visitors alike to continue exploring and enjoying everything this country has to offer,” he said.
