Live from T5: JetBlue Launches Direct Flights to Liberia, Costa Rica
Good morning from New York's JFK Airport! It's not the prettiest day here46 degrees and gloomy/rainy as it isbut we'll soon be trading it for sun and 76 degrees down south...way down south. You see, today JetBlue celebrates the inaugural direct flight to their 70th destination: Daniel Oduber Quirós International Airport in Liberia, Costa Rica, and we're hitching a ride.
Why Liberia, Costa Rica? Why the heck not?! JetBlue already serves the country's capital, San Jose, via direct flights from Orlando, but Liberia is closer to the surfing, tubing, beaches and volcanoes of the Pacific coast. Flying into Liberia instead of San Jose means cutting out a 4-5 hour drive to reach these, not to mention that JetBlue will have the only flights from New York-JFK to here. Oh, and today those flights are on sale for $119 each way.
One more thing: Liberia's Airport is having a celebration of its own with the opening of a brand spanking new terminal.
Gotta jet. Stay tuned tomorrow for more fun from the skies...or rather, on the ground as we do our thing on the Pacific coast of Costa Rica. Pura vida!
Disclosure: We're zipping down to Costa Rica as guests of JetBlue and the Costa Rica Tourism Board, but rest assured that all opinions and all photos are completely our own.
