San Diego International Airport will add once daily nonstop service to New Jersey’s Newark Liberty International Airport (EWR) on JetBlue Airlines beginning Aug. 6. JetBlue is the only carrier to offer nonstop service from SAN to two New York area airports, EWR and John F. Kennedy International Airport (JFK).

“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,” said Kimberly Becker, San Diego County Regional Airport Authority President and CEO.

Other routes JetBlue serves from SAN are Boston Logan International Airport (BOS) and Fort Lauderdal/Hollywood International Airport (FLL).

In operation since 1928, San Diego International Airport (SAN) offers nonstop service to about 70 destinations in the continental U.S., Europe, Asia, Mexico and Canada. The San Diego County Regional Airport Authority has managed the airport since 2003.
