National Airlines Sets Earlier Start Date for Long Island-Puerto Rico Service

ORLANDO, Fla. (March 22, 2016) – After signing a contract with the Town of Islip, National Airlines announced an earlier start date to its scheduled passenger service between New York’s Long Island MacArthur Airport (ISP) and Puerto Rico.

Due to customer demand, National Airlines will begin scheduled service a month earlier than anticipated – on June 1 – offering direct flights between Long Island MacArthur Airport and two destinations in Puerto Rico – Rafael Hernández Airport (BQN) in Aguadilla and Luis Muñoz Marín International Airport (SJU) in San Juan:

“The Town of Islip is a wonderful and engaging community, and Long Island MacArthur Airport offers both outstanding service and convenience for our customers,” said National Airlines President and Chief Operating Officer Edward Davidson. “National Airlines believes there is demand for our unique brand of exclusive service at inclusive fares between Long Island, San Juan and Aguadilla. We have seen strong demand for our customer-focused service which includes complimentary in-flight meals, free cocktails, free first-checked luggage, and spacious, assigned seating. Passengers will experience a level of service that harkens back to early days of upscale airline service that is seldom offered in today’s ‘peanuts and pretzels’ low-cost carrier markets.”

National Airlines, which launched scheduled passenger service in December, also flies to/from Orlando Sanford and Windsor, Ontario, as well as St. John’s, Newfoundland and Labrador. The new service from Long Island is unprecedented, offering nonstop service from Long Island MacArthur Airport to a destination outside the continental U.S. for the first time.

“We’re proud to be partners with National Airlines as we embark on a new era at Long Island MacArthur Airport,” said Town of Islip Supervisor Angie Carpenter. “We’re thrilled to offer an entirely new service that highlights the advantages and ease of flying from Long Island MacArthur Airport, as opposed to flying from other congested tri-state airports.”

In addition to booking flights, passengers can also conveniently book hotels, rental cars and travel packages through National Airlines’ exclusive partner, Tourico Holidays.
