As part of the launch JetBlue will also make a computer and book donation to the Liceo Manuela Mullix Fermin – a school just outside of Samaná – through our longtime community partner, the DREAM (Dominican Republic Education and Mentoring) Project. The DREAM Project is an American and Dominican non for profit organization that believes quality education is critical for the future of the Dominican Republic. We’ve been DREAM’s official ambassador since 2010 and has helped with educational programs for thousands of kids in the country.
In the Dominican Republic, JetBlue also serves La Romana, Puerto Plata, Punta Cana, Santiago and Santo Domingo with service to Boston, Ft. Lauderdale/Hollywood, New York, Orlando and San Juan. Just last week the airline announced plans for two more routes linking San Juan with Punta Cana and Santiago.
