ST. GEORGE’S, GRENADA, February 4, 2015 – GIS: Grenada’s fast growing tourism industry is set to receive another major boost after New York’s Hometown Airline JetBlue announced on Wednesday that it was starting a twice weekly service to St.George’s.

JetBlue says it has set June 11 this year as the date to commence flights from New York's John F. Kennedy International Airport (JFK) to Grenada's Maurice Bishop International Airport.

The JetBlue statement says the company is awaiting approval from Government.

"We cannot wait to add Grenada to our network of Caribbean destinations," said Dave Clark, JetBlue's vice president, network planning.

"Grenada is one of the most beautiful and adventurous destinations in the Caribbean and our new nonstop service will make it much easier to get there. Whether you go for the white sand beaches, world class diving, flagship resorts, or rich history, we know you will want to return again and again."

JetBlue’s twice weekly service will be on Thursdays and Sundays to Grenada, the airline’s 90th destination and its 32nd destination in the Caribbean and Latin America.

JetBlue will serve the route with its spacious 150-seat Airbus A320 aircraft featuring the most legroom in coach, free first-run movies on flights to/from Grenada, and unlimited free snacks and soft drinks.

"Grenada has seen remarkable growth in tourism thanks to a fresh marketing approach, an extraordinary new Sandals resort and a very resilient and committed tourism sector. Combine that with all the magnificent facets of our tri-island state and we have a winning formula,” said the Honorable Alexandra Otway-Noel, Minister of Implementation, Government of Grenada.

“JetBlue is known to offer quality service and high standards, and is the perfect addition to our family. We are indeed very pleased to welcome the inaugural flight on June 11th to Pure Grenada, the Spice of the Caribbean”.
