JetBlue Airways launches flights to Cayman Islands

Last Thursday, JetBlue Airways, launched a new air route to the Cayman Islands. The new flights to their latest Caribbean destination depart from New York’s John F. Kennedy (JFK) International Airport, three times a week on Mondays, Thursdays and Saturdays and will arrive at Owen Roberts International Airport (GCM), in Grand Cayman. Adding to the New York-Grand Cayman air route, Boston’s Logan International Airport (BOS) also launched a Saturday-only service on 17th of November. All these recently-added routes give many travellers the opportunity of taking multi-centre holidays to the Cayman Islands and New York.

For the launch of the new route in what has become their latest Caribbean destination, JetBlue Airways took into account that the paradisiacal archipelago is an attractive venue for tourists, and therefore an important new route for its fleet. Scott Laurence, JetBlue’s vice president of network planning and partnerships declared that: “Grand Cayman is a beautiful destination that offers incredible diversity from cultural, culinary and lifestyle perspectives and we’re pleased to offer the most seats between New York and the island. The pristine white-sand beaches, friendly people and host of dining, shopping and nightlife options make for a perfect vacation.”

McKeeva Bush, the premier and minister of tourism, was glad to welcome one of the world’s most famous airlines to the island. It is her opinion that the new flights to the Cayman Islands will facilitate the income of more tourists to the archipelago. JetBlue now provides a hook for travellers who are thinking of taking holidays in the Cayman Islands.

“We are delighted to welcome JetBlue, one of the world’s leading airlines, to our island,” she stated “The new services from New York and Boston respectively will greatly enhance our Islands accessibility for southbound travel and will provide visitors with more choice and flexibility. JetBlue’s commitment to excellence and service is well renowned and we believe this winning partnership will yield mutually beneficial results well into the future.”

The new JetBlue flights to Grand Cayman which will be operated with its Airbus A320 fleet, have come along with the country’s 60th anniversary of land-based aviation. “In a few days, these Islands will record 60 years of land-based aviation,” said Richard Arch, chairman of the board of Cayman Islands Airports Authority “It is most coincidental that the Cayman Islands have recorded another important step in our aviation history with the arrival of JetBlue Airways. On behalf of the Cayman Islands Airports Authority, our board of directors, management team and employees; an in fact, the Cayman Island on a whole, I Extend our warmest and most sincere welcome to our Islands. We look forward to a long and successful association with JetBlue Airways!”
