NEW YORK--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- JetBlue (Nasdaq: JBLU) today announced plans to continue expanding across the U.S. and the Caribbean, including the launch of two new destinations, bringing more low-fare, great service flights to customers in the airline’s New York, Boston Orlando, and Los Angeles focus cities.
Launching later this year, JetBlue will now offer nonstop flights to two new destinations from New York’s John F. Kennedy International Airport (JFK): Robert Llewellyn Bradshaw International Airport (SKB) in St. Kitts and Nevis and Philip S. W. Goldson International Airport (BZE) in Belize City, Belize (a).
JetBlue is also set to launch service between Los Angeles International Airport (LAX) and Lynden Pindling International Airport (NAS) in Nassau, Bahamas; Boston Logan International Airport (BOS) and Maurice Bishop International Airport (GND) in Grenada (a); and Orlando International Airport (MCO) and Raleigh-Durham International Airport (RDU) in North Carolina. Seats are out for sale today with fares as low as $59, $149, $159, and $179 (b).
“We are proud to continue diversifying our network and to introduce even more options to connect our customers in our focus cities of New York, Boston, Orlando, and Los Angeles to the places they want to fly, bringing more great service and everyday low fares to more customers,” said David Jehn, vice president, network planning and partnerships, JetBlue. “These new routes will position JetBlue to deliver even more growth and connectivity to popular destinations, while also furthering the airline’s significant presence across Latin America and the Caribbean.”
JetBlue – currently the sixth largest airline in the U.S. – is known for having the most legroom in coach (c), live television and on-demand entertainment on every seatback, free and fast Fly-Fi broadband internet (d), complimentary snacks and soft drinks and great customer service.
Connecting New York to Popular Caribbean Destinations
JetBlue’s growth in the Caribbean is part of a broader reach into international markets. In recent years, the airline has built a robust network throughout Latin America and the Caribbean. With JetBlue’s entry into St. Kitts and Nevis and Belize, the airline will now operate in 27 countries within the region and introduce a new era of customer-focused, low-fare travel for leisure and visiting family and friends travelers. As a leader at JFK, JetBlue’s new routes to Belize and St. Kitts are part of JetBlue’s strategy to continue to grow in under-served geographies while bringing more choices and options for our customers. JetBlue will now serve 29 countries from JFK and will offer an average of up to 192 departures per day during peak periods.
Service from New York (JFK) to St. Kitts will begin November 2 bringing a new choice to a route with limited competition today. St. Kitts is the larger of two islands that make up the Federation of St. Kitts and Nevis. St. Kitts boasts a wealth of cultural attractions, lush greenery, pristine beaches, majestic volcanic peaks, and vibrant festivals that showcase the island's unique heritage and traditions.
“We welcome JetBlue’s announcement of nonstop, 3x weekly service from New York to St. Kitts as a testament to the growing interest in our beautiful island,” said Honourable Dr. Terrance Drew, Prime Minister of St. Kitts & Nevis. “This addition not only adds year-round airlift capacity for the growing travel demand but also enhances the tourism industry, thus generating economic activity for our nationals and residents. I look forward to a positive and mutually beneficial fruitful partnership with JetBlue as we work to create a self-sustaining nation and premier tourism destination.”

Anthony Mahler, Belize’s Minister of Tourism and Diaspora Relations. “This nonstop flight from JFK, which serves more than 61 million travelers annually, is a huge win for our ongoing efforts to make Belize accessible to more U.S. visitors. We can’t wait for passengers to disembark and explore the beauty of our country, the richness of our cultures, and the warmth of our people. Additionally, we’re so happy for our fellow Belizeans, now living in New York, as this new non-stop service makes it convenient for them to visit home and their loved ones.”
