JetBlue continued its expansion in Cuba Thursday with the launch of new daily nonstop flights between Fort Lauderdale and Frank Pais Airport in Holguin.
Holguin becomes the third city served in Cuba from JetBlue’s focus city in Fort Lauderdale.
The carrier is now operating 42 nonstop flights each week between the two countries, with more coming later this month with the launch of Havana service.
“Each time we launch a new Cuba destination we expand affordable, customer-friendly air service further between the U.S. and Cuba,” said Robin Hayes, president and CEO, JetBlue. “These historic flight launches are great news for those traveling between our two countries.”
Holguin is the fourth largest city in Cuba, about 400 miles from Havana.
“We commend the work of both U.S. and Cuban officials for making today possible. We also commend the Cuban Ministry of Transportation, IACC, and the Holguín Airport for entrusting us to operate this route and look forward to our long-term partnership as we continue to grow our presence in Cuba,” Hayes said.
