JetBlue applies to add new routes to Jamaica


JetBlue intends to launch service on two new routes this winter, linking Montego Bay to its expanding focus cities in Boston, Massachusetts and Orlando, Florida. The new routes are subject to receipt of authority from the government of Jamaica.

“Jamaica and JetBlue is truly a match made in heaven – or paradise, as it were,” said Scott Laurence, JetBlue’s vice president of route planning. “In just a few months in the market, we’ve developed a strong following among travelers looking for more from their airline – more value, more comfort, and more customer service. We’re thrilled to add to our island service with new flights from Boston and Orlando, where our ongoing international expansion has been a true success story.”

“We are very pleased at JetBlue’s decision to expand its service to Montego Bay and to begin service to Kingston,” said Hon. Edmund Bartlett, Jamaica’s Minister of Tourism. “This is a significant addition to our airlift capacity and will certainly add muscle to our marketing efforts in North America. This opportunity gives us access to JetBlue’s impressive network of loyal clients.”
