JetBlue has long had a significant presence in the Caribbean, and now it’s growing its footprint even further with the addition of several new routes to the region from several of its gateways across the U.S.

Even more exciting, this route expansion includes the addition of 2 brand-new Caribbean destinations for the airline!

“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.

Let’s take a look at everything you need to know!

New Caribbean Service

The Caribbean is a perenially popular destination for U.S.-based travelers, thanks to its close proximity to much of the country, amazing weather year-round, delicious food, beautiful beaches, and so much more.

JetBlue is responding to that popularity by adding several new routes to the region:

The airline’s Boston to Grenada service will commence on November 4, 2023. It will be operated once weekly (on Saturdays) by aircraft equipped with the airline’s Mint business class product according to the following schedule:

  • Depart Boston (BOS) 8 a.m. — Arrive Grenada (GND) 1:43 p.m.
  • Depart Grenada (GND) 3:03 p.m. — Arrive Boston (BOS) 7:04 p.m.

JetBlue will become the only airline to provide nonstop service between these 2 destinations.

Service between Los Angeles and Nassau in the Bahamas will also start on November 4, 2023, and will operate once weekly (on Saturdays) by aircraft equipped with the airline’s Mint business class product according to the following schedule:

  • Depart Los Angeles (LAX) 9:50 a.m. — Arrive Nassau (NAS) 6:20 p.m.
  • Depart Nassau (NAS) 7:40 p.m. — Arrive Los Angeles (LAX) 10:25 p.m.

Once this route is launched, JetBlue will be the only carrier providing nonstop service from Los Angeles to Nassau.

The airline’s 2 new routes from New York also represent entries into entirely new destinations for the airline.

Service from JFK to Belize City will launch on December 6, 2023, and will operate 3 times weekly (on Mondays, Wednesdays, and Saturdays) according to the following schedule:

  • Depart New York (JFK) 8:29 a.m. — Arrive Belize City (BZE) 12:14 p.m.
  • Depart Belize City (BZE) 1:30 p.m. — Arrive New York (JFK) 7 p.m.

Meanwhile, the airline’s new route from New York to St. Kitt’s will commence on November 2, 2023, and will operate 3 times weekly (on Tuesdays, Thursdays, and Sundays) according to the following schedule:

  • Depart New York (JFK) 8:29 a.m. — Arrive St. Kitt’s (SKB) 2:14 p.m.
  • Depart St. Kitt’s (SKB) 3:30 p.m. — Arrive New York (JFK) 7 p.m.

With the addition of Belize and St. Kitt’s and Nevis to the airline’s route map, it will serve a total of 29 countries from John F. Kennedy Airport.

A Bonus Route

While not in the Caribbean, JetBlue is adding another route that should get flyers excited. The carrier will launch nonstop service between Orlando (MCO) and Raleigh-Durham (RDU) as of November 2, 2023.

The new flights will operate daily according to the following schedule:

  • Depart Orlando (MCO) 1 p.m. — Arrive Raleigh-Durham (RDU) 2:41 p.m.
  • Depart Raleigh-Durham (RDU) 3:26 p.m. — Arrive Orlando (MCO) 5:09 p.m.

Additional Details

Tickets are on sale now at jetblue.com. The airline is offering introductory fares as low as $59 one-way, depending on the route.

Final Thoughts

We love to see the addition of new routes, especially when they include new destinations for an airline.

JetBlue’s latest expansion bolsters its presence in the Caribbean, giving flyers across the country even more options for exploring one of the world’s most beautiful regions — and don’t forget about the “bonus” new domestic route, as well!
