JetBlue Adds New Seasonal Boston-Barbados Route

The weekly Boston-Barbados flight will complement JetBlue’s existing daily service from New York JFK to BGI, which was launched in 2009. The flight sale is scheduled to commence on May 1, subject to receipt of government operating authority, with an introductory fare of only US $149 one way for travel from November 7, 2015 until April 30, 2016.

Barbados’ Minister of Tourism and International Transport, Richard Sealy, welcomed the service as a critical part of the strategy to diversify the island’s tourism source markets.

“Boston is one of the most affluent states on the eastern seaboard of the United States and it presents an opportunity to diversify Barbados’ tourism business beyond the current US gateways.  We look forward to continued strong cooperative marketing efforts with our partners at JetBlue to ensure the success of this new service”.

JetBlue’s flights to Barbados will be operated on a 150-seat Airbus A320 and will offer the airline’s award-winning service featuring assigned and comfortable seating; free Fly-Fi, the fastest broadband internet in the sky; complimentary and unlimited name-brand snacks and non-alcoholic/soft drinks; free, live DIRECTV® programming and 100+ channels of SiriusXM® radio in every seatback; and the most legroom in coach (based on average fleet-wide seat pitch of U.S. airlines).
