Independence Air Announces Its First-Ever Caribbean Destination….

Airbus Service From Washington Dulles to San Juan, Puerto Rico

DULLES, Va., Sept. 28 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ — Low-fare airline Independence Air (NASDAQ:FLYI) is announcing new nonstop service from Washington Dulles International Airport (IAD) to Luis Munoz Marin International Airport in San Juan, Puerto Rico (SJU) beginning December 16, 2005. Service will be aboard FLYi’s 132-passenger Airbus A319 aircraft.

The flight schedule will include one daily roundtrip, departing from Washington at 9:30am and from San Juan at 3:20pm. Tickets for the new nonstop Caribbean flights to/from Washington are available for sale now at Tickets for connecting flights from other Independence Air destinations to/from San Juan will be available shortly.

Independence Air Chairman and CEO Kerry Skeen said, “All of us are very excited about introducing San Juan to the Independence Air route network — just in time for the holidays and the upcoming winter travel season. For our customers in the Washington, DC area as well as all our other FLYi cities, this new service is the perfect solution for everyone who’s looking for a fast, easy and inexpensive way to get to the Caribbean.”

This deployment is one element in an overall strategic plan designed to increase total A319 departures by serving more Eastern destinations — including new Airbus flights to Jacksonville, Pittsburgh and Chicago — while reducing service West of the Mississippi. As of November 29th, Las Vegas will remain as Independence Air’s only destination in the West.
