JetBlue will inaugurate its second nonstop flight to Grenada
from the U.S. beginning November 4 with the launch of service from Boston’s
Logan International Airport to Grenada’s Maurice Bishop International Airport.
The carrier will utilize its premium, 159-seat A321 MINT
aircraft featuring 16 lie-flat seats for the weekly, year-round Boston-Grenada
flights, which operate on Saturdays.
JetBlue currently offers daily nonstop service from New
York’s John F. Kennedy International Airport to Maurice Bishop International
“Tourism is a crucial pillar to the success of Grenada, and
we are thrilled about this expanded service from JetBlue as it will allow us to
welcome more visitors to the destination,” said Lennox Andrews, minister for economic
development, planning, and tourism.
“Grenada continues to grow in popularity as a vacation
destination,” Andrews said, “and this service expansion is a testament to the
work we are doing with our partners to continually improve our tourism
JetBlue has added capacity to its Grenada service this year,
replacing its A320 aircraft with larger, 200-seat A321 aircraft for its regular
daily service during the summer peak period (June 15 to September 5).
JetBlue will also increase its service to a second daily
nonstop flight during Spicemas, the island’s largest cultural event, which takes
place between August 7 and September 1.
“As one of the premier destinations in the Caribbean, we
are pleased to be bringing additional JetBlue service to Grenada,” said Robin
Hayes, JetBlue’s chief executive officer.
“The destination has continued to perform well and we
expect that with more ways for our customers to reach its idyllic shores,”
Hayes said, “the future of our partnership looks even brighter.”
“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,” said Petra Roach, the Grenada Tourism Authority’s CEO.
Roach added, “Our numbers from the U.S. continue to move in
the right direction. This is the first time 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.”
