Airline Updates – Air Comet, JetBlue

Airline Updates – Air Comet, JetBlue

January 4, 2010

Some of our European clients will be disappointed to hear that Air Comet, which flies between Spain and several Latin American countries, has ceased operations after a British judge ordered its fleet of leased aircraft impounded.  Air Comet made the decision amid a lack of money to make lease payments on its aircraft. Air Comet’s shutdown comes three years after another Spanish budget carrier, Air Madrid, ceased operations on the eve of the peak period for holiday travel, leaving thousands of travelers stranded.  Hopefully fares between Spain and Latin America will not rise dramatically in the absence of a low-cost carrier.  Your Exito agent will be happy to help you find the most affordable option for your trip.

Residents of the eastern US may be interested to learn that Jet Blue  has applied for authority from the U.S. Department of Transportation to provide new international service to Punta Cana, Dominican Republic, from New York’s JFK Int’l Airport and Boston’s Logan Int’l Airport.  Punta Cana would be JetBlue’s fourth destination in the Dominican Republic. Look for this new service to start in early May.

This was really disappointing at that point of time..However the new international service from Jet Blue is very good and it will very profitable for all the transportation businesses. Update is good and really appreciated.

Thank you, Limo! I was reading this post and I thought that I’d be breaking my budget for my Spain trip. The whole family is going there next month. Cheers!
