New York City-based JetBlue has announced plans to launch a new daily nonstop route between Newark Liberty International Airport and Santo Domingo’s Las Americas International Airport in the Dominican Republic.

The route will provide new service to one of the Caribbean’s emerging cultural destinations.

The new service will begin May 3, 2018; seats are already on sale.

The route boosts JetBlue’s service to the Dominican Republic, where the carrier operates more daily flights than any other airline.

On a quiet historic street.

Santo Domingo’s charming Colonial Zone.

It’s a boost for the city, which is home to the oldest city in the New World and a growing collection of boutique hotels, art galleries and restaurants. (See more on Santo Domingo here)

JetBlue serves five airports in the Dominican Republic: La Romana, Puerto Plata, Punta Cana, Santiago and Santo Domingo.

JetBlue also operates more than 10 daily flights to the Dominican Republic out of New York.
