From the ICT statement:

June 27, 2019. With an Airbus A320, the low-cost airline JetBlue will offer the route New York - San Jose from next November 01. The announcement comes a week after a negotiation led by the Costa Rican Institute of Tourism and Aeris, the manager in charge of Juan Santamaria International Airport.

The direct and permanent flight #1793 will depart from John F. Kennedy International Airport in New York on Tuesdays, Fridays and Sundays at 6.25 p.m., arriving at SJO at 10.50 p.m.; and flight #1794 will depart from SJO at 11.59 p.m. arriving at JFK at 6.09 a.m.

"The A320 has a capacity for 150 passengers so we are adding 23,400 new seats from our main market, the United States of America," said Maria Amalia Revelo, Minister of Tourism. "We offered to strengthen the air connectivity of the country and each new announcement we give to the country is in itself an accountability of the work that the ICT is carrying out in partnership with private enterprise to achieve it," added the leader.

 "We are pleased to continue announcing the strengthening of Costa Rica's connections with the world, especially with a market as important as New York," said Rafael Mencía, Executive Director of AERIS. "With this new direct route from JetBlue, the airline, faithful to its low-cost style and quality service, expands the range of alternatives for passengers according to convenience of price and schedule," he said.

From SJO JetBlue currently operates a daily flight to Fort Lauderdale (FLL) and a daily flight to Orlando (MCO). In addition, JetBlue also offers nonstop service, including seasonal Mint flights to Liberia, from the airline's home in New York-JFK. JetBlue began serving Costa Rica with San Jose service more than a decade ago in March 2009.

604,850 Americans entered Costa Rica from January to May 2019 by air, up 6% from the same period last year. The average stay and expenditure of Americans is estimated at 10.1 nights and US$.
