NEW YORK (  JetBlue Airways launched its award-winning service to its sixth destination in the Dominican Republic, Samana.

JetBlue is the Dominican Republic's largest airline, with more flights in and out of the country than any other carrier.

The airline now operates twice weekly flights between New York's John F. Kennedy International Airport (JFK) and President Juan Bosch International Airport (AZS) in Samana on Wednesdays and Saturdays – the only service between the United States and this coveted beach destination.

Flights are on sale now for as low as $159 one way from JFK to Samana through November 19, 2012 at for travel between November 17 and February 13, 2013. Blackout dates apply (a). Customers can also purchase a full JetBlue Getaways vacation package from only $459 per person, including a three-night stay for two at the Gran Bahia Principe Cayacoa Hotel (b).

"Samana is a beach paradise in the Dominican Republic, a secret worth discovering. We have no doubts our customers will rush to learn everything that this tropical location has to offer," said Scott Laurence, JetBlue's Vice President of Network Planning and Partnerships.

"We are very pleased, as the country's largest carrier, to add more options for locals and visitors alike to continue exploring and enjoying everything the country has to offer. Samana is a destination we've long had our eye on; today we thank the Dominican government and communities for the support we continue to receive."

"Dominican Republic's Samana Peninsula features pure ecological bliss with breathtaking coastline, Los Haitises National Park, El Limon Waterfall, secluded beaches and charming towns like Samana, Las Galeras and Las Terrenas," said Francisco Javier Garcia, Minister of Tourism for Dominican Republic. "JetBlue's direct flight to Samana will bring new visitors to our Northeast Coast, create a stronger economy, and ensure dozens of unique hotels, resorts, shops, diverse attractions and delightful restaurants will receive more visitors."

Jet Blue is increasing the number of destinations and taking advantage of the AA cuts. Good strategy.

It is so refreshing to see inteiligent, positve remarks on this site. Maybe some day soon, the pundits and fools will go elsewhere with their garbage. Thank you Ricardolito, imartinez and TonyTunTun.

For the pundits. If you have nothing nice to say, don't say anything. Go play in someone else's sand box.
