“The reopening of the tourism industry is critical for our economy, and I would describe our reaction to JetBlue relaunching service to the island as joyful, hopeful and optimistic,” said Karen Whitt, vice president of sales and marketing at the Hartling Group in Turks and Caicos. ” JetBlue has been a valuable partner to the destination and to Hartling Group resorts for many years, and we look forward to welcoming them back and working together as we continue to move out of the crisis phase into recovery and beyond, together with our key travel partners. “

The Hartling Group’s Turks and Caicos portfolio includes The Shore Club, The Sands at Grace Bay and The Palms, all of which will be reopening on July 22.
