Jet Blue is adding two more flights from New York to La Romana, Dominican Republic stating Nov 16 2011. This makes jetblue only nonstop flight between the Dominican Republic’s third largest city La Romana and New York. La Romana built its international airport in 2008 to increase traffic to the nearby tourist destinations and golf resorts.

The proposed schedule is for Wednesday and Saturday with a flight leaving JFK at 8:36 in the morning and arriving at LRM at 1:31 in the afternoon and starting its return flight at 2:26 in the afternoon and arriving back at JFK at 5:26. JetBlue expect to be able to offer the flights on an introductory sale for as low as $99 for a one way flight.

This new addition will be JetBlues 5th destination city in the Dominican Republic, something that is good news to me. I personally prefer to travel with JetBlue due to the additional legroom offered in their planes. Other features like the personal TV for each passenger, better in-flight service and smaller lines are just icing on the cake! JetBlue is also very competitive with the other airlines and are very frequently the lowest priced.
