JetBlue Is Adding a New Caribbean Route From Boston
JetBlue Airways is making a significant expansion push in the Caribbean this winter, one that now includes the island of Grenada, Caribbean Journal has learned.
The carrier is set to debut a new nonstop route between Boston and Grenada, with plans to kick off service on Nov. 4, 2023.
The year-round flight will be operated on JetBlue’s 159-seat Airbus A321 aircraft that includes Mint cabin service with 16 lie-flat seats.
“As one of the premier destinations in the Caribbean, we are pleased to be bringing additional JetBlue service to Grenada,” said Robin Hayes, chief executive officer, JetBlue. “The destination has continued to perform well and we expect that with more ways for our customers to reach its idyllic shores, the future of our partnership looks even brighter.”
The flight will operate once weekly on Saturdays.
It’s JetBlue’s second route to Grenada, joining existing daily nonstop service between New York’s John F. Kennedy International Airport and Grenada’s Maurice Bishop International Airport.
“This uptick in service from JetBlue ladders up to our on-going efforts to improve the destination’s offerings to attract more visitors to experience why we are truly the spice isle of the Caribbean,” Petra Roach, CEO of the Grenada Tourism Authority, told Caribbean Journal. “Our numbers from the U.S. continue to move in the right direction and this commitment is a testament to JetBlue’s belief in what we’re developing. This is the first time that JetBlue has introduced a destination with Mint year-round so we could not be more honored for the trust they have invested in our beautiful tri-island state..”
