JetBlue plans Barbados?New York flights
JetBlue Airways plans to continue its international expansion with new service in the fourth quarter to the Caribbean island of Barbados, subject to receipt of government operating authority.
JetBlue intends to begin daily nonstop flights year-round between Grantley Adams International Airport in Bridgetown and New York JFK on 1 October 2009. Flights are expected to go on sale in June.
In addition to its new Barbados flights, JetBlue will head to the West indies with new service to Jamaica on 21 May.
JetBlue will operate its Barbados service with Airbus A320s offering travellers complimentary seatback television programming including free first-run movies, comfortable leather seats, considerable legroom and unlimited free snacks.
"JetBlue is proud to offer our customers even more choice with the addition of new daily service between New York and Barbados," said Scott Laurence, JetBlue's vice-president of network planning. "We look forward to welcoming New Yorkers and Barbadians alike to JetBlue."
