JetBlue (NASDAQ:JBLU) has announced it is adding even more travel choices in its Fort Lauderdale-Hollywood focus city in 2018 with new service between South Florida and two top Caribbean markets: Santiago, Dominican Republic´s Cibao International Airport (STI) and Grand Cayman´s Owen Roberts International Airport (GCM), the company said.
Flights between Fort Lauderdale and Santiago, D.R. will operate once daily roundtrip beginning June 14, 2018, subject to government approval. Seats are on sale today starting at USD 99 one way (a).

JetBlue will operate the new Santiago flights using its spacious 150-seat Airbus A320 aircraft offering the airline´s award-winning service and the most legroom in coach (b), as well as complimentary and unlimited name-brand snacks and soft drinks and free first-run Hollywood movies.
