JetBlue (NASDAQ:JBLU), the first US airline to bring affordable and convenient commercial air travel to Cuba after more than 50 years, has announced the long-anticipated opening of its City Ticket Office and Airport Ticket Office in Havana, the company said.
Both locations offer a new option for Cubans to book travel on JetBlue, with the added benefit of in-person interactions which will provide the personal, helpful and simple customer experience the airline is known for.
JetBlue CEO Robin Hayes, various Cuban officials, airport leadership and JetBlue crewmembers will take part in a ribbon cutting ceremony at the City Ticket Office today to celebrate the opening and will welcome customers at the new location. The opening of the ticket offices come the same week JetBlue celebrates the one-year anniversary of its historic first commercial flight to Cuba on August 31, 2016. In this first year of commercial service, JetBlue has carried more than 390,000 customers between the US and Cuba and operated nearly 2,000 flights between the two nations.
The City Ticket Office is centrally and conveniently located in Havana´s Vedado neighborhood. The new JetBlue space is in the same building as several travel agencies. The area is well-known and easy to reach for JetBlue customers. The accompanying Airport Ticket Office is located across from JetBlue´s check-in counters at Terminal 3 in Havana´s JosÃ© MartÃ International Airport (HAV). Both locations welcome customers wishing to book travel with JetBlue and offer the lowest available fare. Customers may also make changes to existing reservations, select seats and select ancillary services.
