JetBlue’s operations in Houston will move from William P. Hobby Airport (HOU) to George Bush Intercontinental Airport (IAH) this fall, making the final day of flying at Hobby Airport October 26, 2019.

The move to Bush Intercontinental is aimed at strengthening JetBlue’s relevance in New York and Boston, while also growing the carrier’s customer base in Houston.

Customers currently booked on JetBlue flights to and from Hobby Airport on or after October 27, 2019 will be automatically rebooked on flights to and from Bush Intercontinental. JetBlue Customer Support will contact travelers in the coming days to confirm the update to their reservations. Customers who wish to do so may also request a full refund on flights scheduled after the transition date.

Connecting Costa Rica with New York-JFK

San José – Costa Rica’s capital and largest city – is home to more than 300,000 people and offers museums, parks, restaurants and cultural spots, and serves as a jumping off point for travelers interested in visiting rain forests and exploring the national parks.

Additionally, JetBlue also offers nonstop service, including seasonal Mint flights, to Liberia, Costa Rica from the airline’s home at New York-JFK.
