JetBlue has announced that its new New York-Grenada service is officially out for sale.
The twice-weekly service between New York’s John F Kennedy Airport and Grenada’s Maurice Bishop International Airport is slated to begin June 11.
That will make Grenada JetBlue’s 90th city.
“As our 27th destination in the Caribbean, Grenada represents another great opportunity to grow our network in high-value geographies and strengthen JetBlue’s position as the leading brand for Caribbean travel,” said Umang Gupta, director for JetBlue Getaways and leisure sales. “Grenada attracts travelers seeking a variety of activities, whether for adventure, family holiday or romance, and we are excited to provide a new way for more travelers to discover this hidden Caribbean gem.”
In a statement, Grenada Tourism Minister Yolande Bain-Horsford said the new service would “surely expand the opportunities for bringing travelers to our shores to discover and enjoy all that our beautiful islands have to offer.”
