JetBlue flights to Dominican Republic will begin in Dec.

(The following correction appeared on Page 20 in the August 17, 2007 Boston Herald: ``A story in Wednesday's paper misidentified a new nonstop destination that JetBlue will service from Logan International Airport. The discount carrier will offer daily flights between Boston and Santiago, Dominican Republic, from Dec. 12 to Jan. 15.'')

JetBlue Airways is expected to add new daily nonstop service from Boston's Logan International Airport to Santo Domingo, Dominican Republic, beginning in December.

The discount carrier initially will operate the flights Dec. 12 through Jan. 15 and then assess whether bookings merit year-round daily service.

JetBlue is targeting the large and growing population of native Dominicans who have settled in Massachusetts and New England.

The flights will be aboard Airbus A320 aircraft, which hold about 150 passengers. They will leave Logan's Terminal C at 11 p.m. daily, and return flights from Santo Domingo will arrive at Terminal E at 7:50 a.m.

American Airlines is the only Logan carrier that currently operates nonstop service from Boston to Santo Domingo. Several other airlines offer connecting flights through New York, New Jersey or Miami. JetBlue currently offers nonstop service from Logan to 27 destinations.
