JetBlue is continuing its plans for a major expansion in the Caribbean this winter season, Caribbean Journal has learned. 

The company’s recently-announced Caribbean push will also include a trio of new routes from Raleigh-Durham to the wider region. 

That will include headlined by new daily flights from Raleigh-Durham to Montego Bay, Jamaica beginning Nov. 19.

Also on Nov. 19, JetBlue will launch new nonstop flights from Raleigh-Durham to San Juan’s Luis Muñoz Marín International Airport. 

And on the same day, JetBlue will be beginning a new route from Raleigh-Durham to Cancun on the Caribbean coast of Mexico.

It’s the latest sign of confidence for the carrier amid the challenges posed by the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic. 

Just two of the aforementioned destinations are currently open for tourism; Jamaica reopened its borders for international tourism in mid-June, while Cancun and the Mexican Caribbean did so shortly thereafter.

Puerto Rico remains closed for tourist visits, although it’s likely the destination will be open by November.
