JetBlue Launching Daily Flights Between Fort Lauderdale and Barbados

By Alexander Britell

CURACAO — JetBlue is launching another new daily flight to the Caribbean, the company’s CEO, Robin Hayes, announced on Thursday.

Beginning in April 2016, the carrier will be launching daily nonstop service between Fort Lauderdale and Barbados.

That will be the company’s 75th route in the US and the Caribbean.

Hayes made the announcement in a keynote address at the Caribbean Tourism Organization’s State of the Industry Conference in Curacao.

It’s the latest addition in the Caribbean for JetBlue, which has been on a massive expansion push across the wider Caribbean Basin.

JetBlue already operates daily flights from New York to Barbados, with a weekly Boston flight set to launch next month.

The company has already announced plans to operate its new Mint premium seat service on weekly Barbados flights out of Boston.
