Customer-friendly JetBlue Airways today announces plans to grow its focus city at Fort Lauderdale Hollywood International Airport this winter with double daily service to San Juan, Puerto Rico.

One daily flight begins Dec. 18, 2008 while a second daily flight will be added Jan. 6, 2009.

JetBlue is offering fares beginning at just $109(a) each way between Fort Lauderdale and San Juan - a price that includes unlimited free snacks and drinks, seatback TVs, comfy leather seats and the most legroom in coach(b). JetBlue's award-winning customer service never costs a dime extra.

"With top-flight entertainment options, complimentary refreshments, lots of legroom, and award-winning customer service all rolled into one great price, JetBlue continues to prove that low fares can, in fact, come with high standards," said Scott Laurence, JetBlue's director of route planning. "On most airlines, you get what you pay for. On JetBlue, you get more. As we expand our reach from Fort Lauderdale into the Caribbean, we thank our customers for making us their carrier of choice in South Florida."

"Puerto Rico celebrates JetBlue's decision to introduce daily service from Fort Lauderdale, one of our most important markets for business and leisure travel," said Puerto Rico Tourism Company's Executive Director, Terestella Gonzalez-Denton. "We would like to thank JetBlue's executive board and especially the airline's crewmembers who work hard each and every day to make JetBlue the fastest-rising air carrier to Puerto Rico."
