JetBlue is restarting service between New York (JFK) and Pointe-à-Pitre, Guadeloupe (PTP) as of November 5, 2022.
Here’s what you need to know about the resumption of this very exciting route!
Nonstop Flights Resume in November
The schedule has already been loaded onto JetBlue’s website, and flights are available to purchase from November 5, 2022, starting at $84 one-way or $236 round-trip.
Flights will operate 3 times a week on Mondays, Wednesdays, and Saturdays. If you have TrueBlue points earned by flying JetBlue, opening a JetBlue credit card, or transferring Amex Membership Rewards points, Chase Ultimate Rewards points, or Citi ThankYou Points, rates start at 5,600 points one-way.
“We are thrilled about the return of JetBlue in November, [this is] excellent news for the destination and for Americans who are eager to discover or to return to our French Caribbean archipelago for a unique experience,” said Sonia Taillepierre, President of the Guadeloupe Islands Tourist Board, in a statement.
The restarting of the JFK-PTP route bolsters existing service between the United States and the Caribbean island, a French territory located between Montserrat and Dominica. Currently, several airlines operate flights from the U.S. to Pointe-à-Pitre, including American Airlines from its Miami (MIA) hub and a fifth-freedom route on Air France, also from Miami.
The route also comes just before Guadeloupe’s Route du Rhum, an international transatlantic sailing race with nearly 140 sailors that will set off from France on November 6, 2022, and arrive in Pointe-à-Pitre approximately 2 weeks later.
“This is a highly anticipated season for all our partners. The future of travel is very promising as all health restrictions have been lifted. We are ready to welcome Americans,” said Taillepierre.
JetBlue began service between New York and Pointe-à-Pitre in early 2020, just a few weeks before the coronavirus pandemic upended the travel industry. At the time, the airline planned to operate a seasonal winter schedule with flights on Saturdays, Mondays, and Wednesdays.
