Announcing our 70th BlueCity: Liberia!

Today at the Presidential Palace in San José, the president of Costa Rica, Laura Chinchilla Miranda, joined JetBlue officials in announcing our 70th BlueCity: Liberia!

Located on Costa Rica’s stunning Pacific coastline in the Guanacaste province, Liberia is a surfer’s mecca and an ecotourist’s dream. You can linger on the beach, get lost in the rainforest, or take in the beauty of the region’s Arenal Volcano National Park, home to Costa Rica’s most active volcano!

Beginning November 17, we’ll offer four weekly A320 flights from JFK to Daniel Oduber Quirós International Airport (LIR), which is opening a new terminal just in time for our arrival. Our new service will complement our daily service to the Costa Rican capital of San José from Orlando.

Thanks to everyone for their submissions from our “Guess where we’re flying to next” contest on Facebook!

Flight schedule

Depart JFK 09:40 a.m. – Arrive LIR 2:05 p.m.
Depart LIR 03:00 p.m. – Arrive JFK 9:00 p.m. [T4]

Flights operate Thursdays, Saturdays, Sundays, and Tuesdays

    This is awesome news and your flight times are very comfortable. I would ask that you also fly out of Long Beach, as no one serves the west coast in getting to Liberia – you’d own the whole west coast!!!
    Thank you and looking forward to it
