JetBlue Airways has announced it is launching service between Fort Lauderdale-Hollywood International Airport (FLL) and Aruba’s Queen Beatrix International Airport (AUA). Daily flights between South Florida and the popular Caribbean destination take off January 4, 2017. Seats are on sale today with fares starting at $99 one-way.
JetBlue currently serves Aruba from its New York and Boston focus cities with daily flights. It also offers weekly Mint flights seasonally from both airports, which feature the airline’s successful premium service with lie-flat seating and tapas style dining. Mint from New York launches September 10 and from Boston on November 5. Fort Lauderdale-Hollywood service will provide a third nonstop Aruba gateway and allow for convenient connections from across the growing JetBlue network
This is the latest in a series of announcements from JetBlue regarding new service at Fort Lauderdale-Hollywood, where the airline is the largest carrier and where it intends to grow to up to 140 daily flights in the coming years.
Later this week, JetBlue will launch service to Santa Clara, Cuba, the first of four Cuban cities the airline tentatively plans to serve from Fort Lauderdale-Hollywood, subject to receipt of government operating authority.
