Trinidad and Tobago’s Civil Aviation Authority has issued JetBlue its operating licence to begin service to Port of Spain, the Ministry of Transport announced.

The New York City-based carrier will begin daily nonstop service from New York to Port of Spain beginning Feb. 24, 2014, with daily nonstop service from Fort Lauderdale to Port of Spain to begin May 1, 2014.

The licence was granted after JetBlue had satisfied all of Trinidad and Tobago’s aviation safety, security and economic regulations, according to Ramesh Lutchmedial, director general of civil aviation.

“We look forward to welcoming JetBlue and its award-winning service to Trinidad and Tobago,” said Trinidad and Tobago Tourism Minister Chandresh Sharma. “JetBlue’s service to Port of Spain from New York and Fort Lauderdale will offer a high quality experience for business and leisure travellers alike. This is in keeping with governments’ vision to grow the tourism sector,”

Trinidad is the latest new destination for JetBlue, which has been rapidly expanding its service across the Caribbean.
