    Roger that DannyO. Don't they fly out of AC or Philly? All 3 are pretty much the same distance for me. Newark, AC, and Philly. I should look in to them for next trip.

    Spirit flies out of ACY to Aruba THROUGH Fort Lauderdale.

    Air Tran is beginning service to AUA through Atlanta and Orlando- Saturdays only.

    Just priced Air Tran for June and they were $150 pp less than Delta non-stop out of Atlanta.

    "JetBlue will fly extra flights after all
    4 Dec, 2009, 11:47 (GMT -04:00)

    ORANJESTAD — It appears that the American airline company JetBlue Airways will still be flying extra direct flights between Boston and Aruba, in comparison with the same period last year. Last year in May, JetBlue had namely only flown one flight Boston – Aruba per week. As of May 2010, this will be increased to four or five flights per week.


    Spokesman Hendrik Croes of Aruba Authority Airport had confirmed this today. It had only been yesterday, when Croes had told this newspaper that ‘the flight schedule would remain the same as always’. However, that announcement had been incorrect. JetBlue will be flying more frequently to Boston because US Airways has cancelled the flights between Boston and Aruba as of 2010, Croes further explains. Generally speaking, the latter would have carried out two to four flights per week. For that reason, the airport had submitted a request to JetBlue and American Airlines to bridge the gap. JetBlue had in any case responded to this request.

    As of May 1st, 2010, there will be one direct flight between Boston and Aruba on Fridays, Saturdays, Sundays and Mondays. Furthermore, there will be an extra flight on the Saturday during the busy holiday period as well as on Memorial Day, Forth of July and Labor Day. JetBlue will be using an aircraft type A320 for these flights, which have a capacity of more than 150 seats."

    Couldn't get the non-stop to Aruba on Jet Blue this time (sold out?), but took it last year. Definitely the first choice in how to get here from Boston! This time, I had to take the 6 AM shuttle to Newark, and change planes (on Continental).
