American Airlines Launching New Routes to Turks and Caicos, Saint Lucia

By: Alexander Britell - February 21, 2021

American Airlines is launching more new routes to the Caribbean beginning in June, Caribbean Journal has learned. 

The world’s largest airline will be launching new routes from New York’s John F. Kennedy International Airport to both Providenciales, Turks and Caicos and Saint Lucia. 

On June 5, American will kick off weekly Saturday flights to both destinations. 

The new routes come as a result of the new “Northeast Alliance” between American Airlines and JetBlue Airways.

Both the Turks and Caicos and Saint Lucia routes will complement JetBlue’s existing service to the destinations. 

The Saint Lucia route is the second new route to the island announced in this month; on June 5, American will also launch new weekly flights from Dallas-Fort Worth to Saint Lucia.

“Our alliance with American opens the door for JetBlue to successfully enter into new markets, introducing more choices and our award-winning service and low fares to more customers,” said Scott Laurence, head of revenue and planning, JetBlue. “The alliance is also essential to getting our planes back in the air profitably and crew members working again.”

American’s announcement also comes after JetBlue revealed its own broad Caribbean expansion as a result of the alliance

American and JetBlue are also expecting to launch codesharing sales on the new international routes.
