JetBlue Just Added Two More Flights to Curacao 

By: Caribbean Journal Staff - April 20, 2023

JetBlue has added two more weekly flights to Curacao out of New York. 

The New York City-based airline is now operating five flights each week between New York’s John F Kennedy International Airport and Curacao, with service on Thursdays, Fridays, Saturdays, Sundays and Mondays. 

The new flights come as the Dutch Caribbean island is projecting a surge in travel this year, following last year’s record-breaking visitor numbers. 

The Curacao Marriott recently completed a $40 million renovation.

That’s included a record number of visitors fro the United States market, who have been traveling to Curacao to visit resorts like the new Sandals Royal Curacao and the recently-renovated Curacao Marriott Beach Resort, which is still gleaming after a $40 million renovation project. 

The Dutch Caribbean has been off to a stellar start so far in 2023, with both the US and mainland Dutch market contributing to the blazing pace.
