New routes are like our children—we love them all equally—but if we were forced to play favorites JetBlue ranks up there.. This week the airline is beefing up its service from San Juan, Puerto Rico, as they’re planning a new nonstop option between Puerto Rico and St. Maarten beginning this fall. The new flights will go on sale soon, and are scheduled to start up on November 17. We’re mostly excited about this new option, as we’re eager to see how JetBlue will use San Juan in the future. We’re definitely down for a little bit of Caribbean island hopping with just a quick stop in Puerto Rico.
· Singapore Airlines:
It’s a busy week for the Airbus A380, as Singapore Airlines is also sending one of its super jumbo-jets to a new spot around the globe. Beginning on July 1 the world’s best airline—or at least it usually seems that way—will be sending the plane from Singapore to Los Angeles via Tokyo. The new option was originally planned for the end of March, but due to the earthquake in Japan things were forced to be postponed. The flight isn’t non-stop between Singapore and Los Angeles, as there is a little bit of a pit stop at Tokyo’s Narita airport.
Expect airfare between Washington, DC and Minneapolis-St. Paul to head south soon. Last week United Airlines started service between the nation’s capital and the Twin Cities, and this will add a little bit of healthy competition between the two cities. Previously this was only a nonstop option for those flying on Delta. The flights will run twice a day, and will allow for plenty of connections to destinations near and far once passengers land at Washington Dulles International Airport.
