The online gambling rich nation of Costa Rica will soon be able to enjoy the JetBlue experience.  The Central American nation is the largest employer in the North American Internet gambling sector.

The airline announced service between Orlando and San Jose, Costa Rica beginning 26 and will use the airport as a connector from cities such as New York, Boston and Washington. 

"JetBlue is picking up the route from Dutch carrier Martinair, which pulled out of Orlando earlier this year," the Orlando Sentinel writes in its Tourism Central Florida blog. Steve Gardner, the executive director at Orlando International, says JetBlue's Costa Rica route "further establishes our city as a gateway to the Latin American markets."

100-seat Embraer E190 jets equipped with individual satellite televisions will be used for the approximately 3 hour flight so that industry diehards will not miss their ESPN televised games while in the air, at least for a portion of the flight.  The live TV signal will be lost once outside US borders. 

JetBlue notes that it still must get the OK from the Costa Rican government operating authority before it can begin the service, but Costa Rican officials sounded supportive of the new route. "The United States is still our biggest market, and the arrival of JetBlue and its new Orlando route opens new possibilities for Americans to visit us and for Costa Ricans to have more options to visit the U.S.," Costa Rica Tourist Minister Carlos Ricardo Benavides says in the JetBlue press release.
