JetBlue Launching New Route to Barbados

By: Caribbean Journal Staff - July 7, 2016

JetBlue Airways is continuing its expansion in Barbados.

The New York City-based carrier has announced the launch of new weekly flights between Newark Liberty International Airport and Barbados’ Grantley Adams International Airport.

The new flights will operate during the peak travel period of Nov. 19 through January 7, 2017, subject to government operating authority.

Seats are now available for purchase.

“Barbados continues to be one of JetBlue’s best performing destinations and we know our New York customers will love having even more choices to select from when they book their holiday travel this year,” said Dave Clark, vice president of network planning at JetBlue. “Demand to and from Barbados is particularly strong over the holidays and we are pleased to offer more seats and more choices to serve this peak holiday demand.”

JetBlue first launched service to Barbados in 2009, and now offers nonstop flights to Barbados from New York, Boston and Fort Lauderdale, with the latter the most recent daily addition.

JetBlue has also begun operating its Mint premium cabin service on select flights to Barbados from both New York City and Boston.

“We are truly appreciative of JetBlue’s response to the high demand out of New Jersey, its introduction of this new service and their continued support of our beautiful island,” said Petra Roach, US Director at Barbados Tourism Marketing Inc. “As seen with our previous new gateways, we are fully committed to ensuring its success and long term viability. With another JetBlue milestone and our 50th Year of Independence, now is the ideal time to experience the island of Barbados – and getting to the island is easier than ever before.”

The Newark-Barbados flights will depart Newark at 9:37 AM local time, arriving in Barbados at around 3:29 PM.

The outbound Barbados flights will depart Grantley Adams International Airport at 4:25 PM, arriving in Newark at 8:41 PM, according to the company.
