American Airlines will end its non-stop flights between New York JFK and San Juan, Puerto Rico, discontinuing a route it has flown since the early 1970s. American currently offers two daily round-trip flights between the cities, but those will end Aug. 22.
These are routes American Airlines picked up when they bought Trans Caribbean Airlines in March of 1971. American will continue to fly 21 daily flights between San Juan and five of its other hubs: Charlotte, Chicago O’Hare, Dallas/Fort Worth, Miami and Philadelphia.
JetBlue will continue to face competition between New York and San Juan. Delta also operates a hub at New York JFK, and its summer schedule shows four daily round-trip flights to San Juan. And from Newark, United offers three daily flights from its hub there while JetBlue flies two daily flights to San Juan.
