JetBlue expands Caribbean routes

JetBlue is expanding across the region with seven new routes.

The expansion will see JetBlue flying out of Newark to Aruba, Jamaica, Dominican Republic, Sint Maarten, The Bahamas and Turks and Caicos with flights from Montego Bay, Jamaica to North Carolina.

The Caribbean expansion is among the airline's 24 new routes that will be launched later this year.

The expansion is aimed at immediately generating cash and capturing traffic on a variety of new, nonstop routes – many never flown before by the airline.

Each route plays to JetBlue’s strengths in the airline’s focus cities, in Florida, in Latin American and the Caribbean or on cross-country – or transcontinental – flying. Every market has been uniquely identified as one in which JetBlue anticipates increasing demand for leisure travel. All new flights take off in November and December with seats on sale today.

“This is the latest example of JetBlue’s ability to be nimble and play offense as we quickly adjust to new customer behaviors and booking patterns,” said Scott Laurence, head of revenue and planning, JetBlue.

“This latest series of new routes – even in the current environment – advances our revised network strategy, returns more aircraft to the skies and doubles down on our ability to generate more cash sooner.”
