JetBlue starts T&T flights in February
JetBlue Airways will begin once daily non-stop flights from Fort Lauderdale/Hollywood International Airport from May 1, 2014. A press release from the airline also stated that twice-daily non-stop service to POS from New York’s JFK International Airport will start on February 24, 2014. These flights are subject to receipt of government operating authority. “We are dedicated to growing in South Florida and expanding our network to the Caribbean and Latin America,” said Scott Laurence, vice president of network planning for JetBlue Airways. “We combine low fares with the best customer experience in the skies. Customers visiting the beautiful island of Trinidad and Tobago have dealt with high fares, cramped seating and limited choices for too long.”
Tourism Minister Chandresh Sharma said: “We look forward to welcoming JetBlue and its award winning service to Trinidad and Tobago. JetBlue’s service to Port-of-Spain from New York and Fort Lauderdale will offer a high quality experience for business and leisure travellers alike. This is in keeping with governments’ vision to grow the tourism sector. “The United States has traditionally been and continues to be one of our major trading partners. An efficient, reliable and affordable airlift is of critical importance in further capitalising on the potential from the US We look forward to a relationship that can engender new opportunities not just for Trinidad and Tobago, but also for the wider Caribbean region.” Destinations in Latin America and the Caribbean now make up almost one-third of JetBlue's route network. In the Caribbean, JetBlue is the largest carrier in terms of capacity in both Puerto Rico and the Dominican Republic, offering more flights than any other carrier. The airline will also begin service to Port-au-Prince, Haiti this winter, subject to receipt of government approval.
