Frontier threatens to displace JetBlue in the Caribbean

San Juan – JetBlue’s flight leadership in the Caribbean region, especially in operations between the United States and the Dominican Republic, is under threat, as Frontier seeks to capture part of that valuable market.

Both low-cost airlines are starring in an eye-catching competition from Puerto Rican soil to the DR. For example, in the connection between the capital of Puerto Rico and Santiago de los Caballeros, Frontier has opened up powerful competition to JetBlue, planning to offer almost 34,000 seats. In the same way, it is proposed to operate five weekly flights to Santo Domingo from various airports in Puerto Rico, making JetBlue reinforce its offensive, as in fact, it is already doing, betting on its sweetest strategy: great offers, as it could. check arecoa.com. As a disadvantage for JetBlue, this fierce competition comes at a time when its image and reputation in the Dominican market are simply faltering. The cause? Its constant service failures, ranging from cancellations to delays that in many cases exceed 20 hours. Everything seems to indicate that the battle that Frontier is posing to JetBlue from Puerto Rico is just the beginning and that will then expand to other American destinations where JetBlue dominates at ease.
