Caribbean Fever - Your ONLY destination to all things Caribbean and more
JetBlue has introduced a Boston-Port-au-Prince service to its schedule, at least for the next three months, and added Grenada to its list of destinations.
The airline began flying from Logan Airport in Boston to the Toussaint Louverture International Airport in Haiti’s capital yesterday, with service expected to continue every Wednesday and Saturday until September 5.
Talks between JetBlue and Haiti’s ministry of tourism are underway to examine the possibility of making the flight a permanent fixture.
JetBlue currently also operates a daily flight between New York and Haiti and two daily flights between Fort Lauderdale and Haiti.
Just last week, the airline launched twice-weekly non-stop service to its newest destination, Grenada’s Maurice Bishop International Airport in Grenada from New York’s John F. Kennedy International Airport.
That service operates on Thursdays and Sundays.
“This flight reaches to our diaspora and potential visitors wishing to experience an unspoiled destination. We look forward to the longevity of this partnership that will benefit our tourism sector,” said Grenada’s Minister of Tourism and Civil Aviation Yolande Bain-Horsford.
Grenada is JetBlue’s 90th destination.
The airline continues to grow its footprint in Latin America and the Caribbean, recently announcing plans to serve Antigua, Mexico City and Quito, and to offer its successful Mint experience from New York to Aruba and Barbados on Saturdays between November 7, 2015 and April 30, 2016, and daily between December 19, 2015 and January 4, 2016.
