Trinidad-based regional airline Caribbean Airlines is set to launch a major new route next month, Caribbean Journal has learned.
The carrier will be launching new nonstop flights between New York’s John F. Kennedy International Airport and Barbados.
The new route is slated to launch on April 1, according to the company, which operates both intra-Caribbean flights and service from North American cities.
This is a significant milestone for Caribbean Airlines, and reiterates our commitment to giving our customers options and access to regional and international destinations,” said Garvin Medera, CEO of Caribbean Airlines, in a statement. “This will further improve connectivity and expand our network which is one of our main objectives.”
The nonstop flight will operate one round-trip service each week, with flights from Barbados to New York on Thursdays and flights from New York to Barbados on Saturdays.
The flight takes just under five hours.
Barbados has been open for tourism since July 2020. You can find more about the island’s latest travel protocols here.
