JetBlue Airways has officially launched sales for its newest Caribbean service: thrice-weekly flights to the French Caribbean department of Guadeloupe.
The new service is slated to launch Feb. 1, 2020, with nonstop flights between New York’s John F. Kennedy International Airport and Pointe-a-Pitre International Airport.
“A long-time favorite getaway spot for French and other Western Europeans travelers, we can’t wait to introduce our JetBlue customers to this unique corner of the Caribbean,” said Andrea Lusso, director route planning, JetBlue. “And as the only airline to serve Guadeloupe from the northeastern United States, JetBlue adds yet another, unique destination to our growing route map.”
The flights will operate on Saturdays, Mondays and Wednesdays.
“JetBlue’s new air service to Guadeloupe was highly anticipated by New Yorkers and Guadeloupeans,” said Ary Chalus, President of the Guadeloupe Tourist Board. “We will be celebrating the new route in New York with brand ambassador Willy Monfret and JetBlue during Pinknic – the annual rosé Pinknic and music festival July 19-20 – and again when the winter inaugural flight takes off during the heat of our legendary three-month Carnival season.”
