San Diego International Airport (SAN) will add once daily, nonstop service to Newark Liberty International Airport (EWR) on JetBlue beginning August 6, 2020. JetBlue is the third airline to offer nonstop service to EWR, joining Alaska Airlines and United Airlines.
“This marks a new route for JetBlue out of San Diego International Airport and we welcome the addition,” said Kimberly Becker, San Diego County Regional Airport Authority President and CEO. “We know this is an important market and gateway destination for many people who are looking to travel to and from the Tri-state area. We encourage travelers to visit san.org/gosafely for up-to-date travel information.”
JetBlue is the only carrier that will offer nonstop service to two New York area airports, EWR and John F. Kennedy International Airport (JFK), from SAN. Other routes JetBlue serve from SAN are Boston Logan International Airport (BOS) and Fort Lauderdale/Hollywood International Airport (FLL). Tickets are already on sale on jetblue.com.
SAN has implemented a number of modifications and protocols that have been put in place to help ensure the health and safety of passengers and employees that choose to travel amid the COVID-19 pandemic. Those modifications and protocols include increased cleaning of high touch points, signage on preventive health measures, floor decals and seat separation signage to queue six-foot social distance, and Plexiglas sneeze guards in certain public spaces. Per the California Department of Public Health, facial coverings are required for all passengers, visitors, tenants, contractors and employees while on airport property, excluding those with a medical or mental health condition, or developmental disability that prevents wearing a face covering.
