Attention travelers: JetBlue just announced plans to continue its expansion of flights—both in and outside of the U.S.—and some of those destinations just happen to be in the Caribbean. We already know that most Americans don’t take enough vacation time (and you shouldn’t let that be you). If island time is calling for you, now is your chance to visit those beautiful white beaches and crystal blue water for under $200 on one of these JetBlue flights. So, what are you waiting for? Your feet could be in the sand come this November!
What are the new routes?
The airliner is adding destinations from New York, Boston, Orlando, and Los Angeles to begin with. “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,” the company said in a press release.
JetBlue will also be launching flights from Los Angeles International Airport (LAX) to Lynden Pindling International Airport (NAS) in Nassau, Bahamas (the first airline to offer a nonstop route); and from Boston Logan International Airport (BOS) to Maurice Bishop International Airport (GND) in Grenada. They are also adding a non-Caribbean flight option from Orlando International Airport (MCO) to Raleigh-Durham International Airport (RDU) in North Carolina beginning on November 2. This route will be offered once daily, connecting the two cities.
OK, tell me more
