JetBlue Airways is launching service to the Caribbean island of Grenada, the carrier announced Wednesday.

The move could be a major boost for an island that saw one of the highest tourist arrival growth rates in the region last year.

Pending government approval, JetBlue will launch service on June 11, operating two weekly flights from John F Kennedy International Airport and Maurice Bishop International Airport in Grenada.

Grenada will be the carrier’s 32nd destination in Latin America and the Caribbean.

“We cannot wait to add Grenada to our network of Caribbean destinations,” said Dave Clark, JetBlue’s vice president for network planning. “Grenada is one of the most beautiful and adventurous destinations in the Caribbean, and our new nonstop service will make it much easier to get there. Whether you go for the white sand beaches, world class diving, flagship resorts, or rich history, we know you will want to return again and again.”

The carrier has been on a major wave of expansion in the Caribbean, most recently adding flights to the Dutch Caribbean island of Curacao.

JetBlue will operate the flights on 150-seat Airbus A320 planes.
