JetBlue expanding service to Grenada


Added 05 February 2017


ST GEORGE’S – JetBlue is launching a new daily service between New York’s John F. Kennedy International Airport (JFK) and Grenada’s Maurice Bishop International Airport (GND) on June 16, 2017.

The Grenada Tourism Authority made the announcement recently during the Caribbean Hotel and Tourism Association’s CHTA’s Caribbean Travel Marketplace.

 “We’re seeing a lot of demand from travellers in the Northeast, so we’re thrilled JetBlue will bring much-needed lift to the destination,” said Patricia Maher, CEO of Grenada Tourism Authority.

“New York is one of our largest markets and we’re confident the island will see a domino effect across our tourism industry.”

JetBlue currently serves Grenada from JFK with five flights offered Sunday, Monday, Tuesday, Thursday and Saturday departing at 9:57 a.m..

There are also weekly Mint flights that operate Saturdays only on a seasonal basis, which were launched in January.

In addition to the existing flights, the two new flights will depart at the same time on Wednesdays and Fridays with the returning flight at 3:27 p.m. These times allow for visitors to arrive early and depart late, increasing time spent on the island. (PR)
