“We are delighted to be flying to Puerto Rico, popularly known as the Island of Enchantment, this winter. This colourful, diverse and culturally unique island is a welcome addition to our Caribbean program. From the stunning beaches and tropical rainforests to the charming colonial city of San Juan, there is something for every holidaymaker, Virgin Atlantic CEO Steve Ridgway said.
“The launch of these services allows our sister company Virgin Holidays to offer a range of fantastic cruise holidays from Puerto Rico, meaning that even more Virgin travellers can enjoy what this beautiful island has to offer,” Ridgway added.
The scheduled flights will be operated on a Boeing 747-400 aircraft. Virgin Atlantic already flies to Barbados, Antigua, St Lucia, Grenada, Tobago, Havana and Jamaica in the Caribbean and 30 destinations worldwide from the United Kingdom

Excellent! I have been to Puerto Rico before. There is so much to see & do in Puerto Rico, an island full of history & culture. Whomever plans to visit there must not leave the island without first visiting the El Yunque tropical rain forest which has been nominated for the chance of becoming one of the new 7 wonders of the world.

The flight was scheduled to leave Luis Muñoz Marín International Airport at 7:30 p.m. and reach Santo Domingo’s Las Américas International Airport an hour later, PAWA Dominicana official Anthony Durán said.
The flight will operate six-days per week, flying every day except Saturday.
PAWA Dominicana launched its first San Juan to Santo Domingo service in late June and the flights have been “very full,” Durán said. That flight leaves San Juan at 11 a.m.
“It was the passengers who asked us to add this second flight, which was originally scheduled to come online in December but we have pushed it up four months thanks to the good reception we have gotten in Puerto Rico,” Durán said.
Both flights are on DC-9 aircraft with capacity for 100 passengers.
Fred Sosa, general manager for PAWA Dominicana in Puerto Rico, said the carrier has plans to link flights from San Juan to Aruba, Curacao, Caracas and Port-a-Prince through connections in Santo Domingo.
He said PAWA is currently the only airline that flies from three Puerto Rico airports – LMM, Aguadilla and Ponce – to the Dominican Republic.
The LMM flight launched in June marked the third expansion of the young airline in less than a year since it began operations in summer 2008. PAWA is the first Dominican airline to fly to and from U.S. territory in more than 15 years.
PAWA was established in 2005 when a group of Dominican investors acquired the now extinct ServAir. Currently, it is working with the Dominican, Haitian and Puerto Rico travel agents associations to increase airlift to and from those markets.

ufthansa and JetBlue have released details about their proposed codeshare pact, which still must be cleared by regulators. In a statement, JetBlue says: "Initially, the airlines plan to offer connecting service between 12 JetBlue destinations in the U.S. and Puerto Rico and Lufthansa's network of 180 destinations in Europe, the Middle East, Africa and Asia."
The 12 initial JetBlue destinations are Austin, Buffalo, Fort Lauderdale, Fort Myers (Fla.), New Orleans, Pittsburgh, Raleigh/Durham, Rochester (N.Y.), San Juan (Puerto Rico), Syracuse, Tampa and West Palm Beach. The codeshare pact will cover passengers connecting between Lufthansa and JetBlue flights via either New York JFK or Boston.

theoretically, there's no reason the codesharing couldn't be implemented for jet blue's ponce flights as well. It increases choice, though I imagine it's still nicer to fly Iberia to Madrid and transfer there.

ALLAS — American Airlines said on Thursday it will relaunch daily flights between Washington Dulles airport and San Juan beginning Nov. 19.

American said it is putting a Boeing 737 aircraft on the route, which it will fly once a day in each direction.
“San Juan is a great destination for Washingtonians, both for business and leisure travel, and we are delighted to reinstate this service,” said Gerald McGaughey, American Airlines director of passenger sales for the Mid-Atlantic Region. “It will also be a real benefit to residents of Puerto Rico, who will have convenient access to our nation’s capital and surrounding areas.”
