FT. LAUDERDALE, Fla. – JetBlue Airways, Ft. Lauderdale’s carrier of choice, announced today it will be adding a third daily flight between Fort Lauderdale and Nassau, making it even easier to connect Floridians with all that The Bahamas has to offer. The increased service builds on the success of JetBlue’s existing nonstop Nassau service from Ft. Lauderdale, Orlando, New York (JFK) and Boston.
“This additional flight would not be possible without the steadfast support of the Nassau and Paradise Island Promotions Board; we’re very happy with the tremendous support we’ve received from customers in both South Florida and The Bahamas,” said Scott Laurence, JetBlue’s Vice President of Network Planning. “Whether it’s business or pleasure, an hour-long trip and three daily JetBlue flights make it very easy to reach the Bahamas; a shiny new terminal doesn’t hurt, either!”
“We are so pleased that JetBlue recognizes and continues to support Nassau Paradise Island as a popular vacation destination with the addition of this third daily flight,” said Fred Lounsberry, Chief Executive Officer of the Nassau Paradise Island Promotion Board. “Along with the opening of a brand new terminal at Lynden Pindling International Airport, we are certain visitors will find it easier and more affordable than ever to plan a convenient island getaway any time of the year.”
