JetBlue Airways announced five new routes today including two new destinations: St. Kitts and Nevis and Belize City. Other new routes include service between Raleigh-Durham and Orlando, Boston and Grenada, and Los Angeles and Nassau. With these new additions, JetBlue will serve 27 countries in the region.
JetBlue’s service from New York John F Kennedy International Airport (JFK) to Robert Llewellyn Bradshaw International Airport (SKB) in St. Kitts and Nevis begins on November 2nd. Flights will operate on Tuesdays, Thursdays, and Sundays.
Terrance Drew, the Prime Minister of St. Kitts and Nevis, said:
We welcome JetBlue’s announcement of nonstop, 3x weekly service from New York to St. Kitts as a testament to the growing interest in our beautiful island. This addition not only adds year-round airlift capacity for the growing travel demand but also enhances the tourism industry, thus generating economic activity for our nationals and residents. I look forward to a positive and mutually beneficial fruitful partnership with JetBlue as we work to create a self-sustaining nation and premier tourism destination.”
The flights from New York John F Kennedy International Airport (JFK) to Philip S. W. Goldson International Airport (BZE) in Belize City will operate on Mondays, Wednesdays, and Saturdays (starting on December 6th).
Anthony Mahler, Belize’s Minister of Tourism and Diaspora Relations, said:
This new route is a huge win for the government’s efforts to make Belize accessible to more US visitors.”
On November 4th, JetBlue will begin flying between Boston Logan International Airport (BOS) and Maurice Bishop International Airport (GND) in Grenada as well as between Los Angeles International Airport (LAX) and Nassau Lynden Pindling International Airport (NAS) once weekly on Saturdays.
Raleigh Durham continues to grow and JetBlue is adding daily service between Raleigh-Durham International Airport (RDU) and Orlando International Airport (MCO) beginning on November 2nd.
Anthony’s Take: I’ve been to all of these destinations and particularly enjoyed St. Kitts and Belize. New routes are always a good thing and JetBlue seems to keep expanding to new destinations.
