New York based JetBlue to Launch Service to Curaçao
JetBlue’s Caribbean push shows no signs of slowing down.
The New York City-based carrier announced Wednesday that it would be launching service to another new Caribbean destination, beginning service from New York to Curaçao on Dec. 2.
The service would become the only nonstop service from New York to the Dutch Caribbean island.
The twice-weekly service will operate on Tuesdays and Saturdays.
“We are really excited to be able to offer customers the only nonstop route from New York to Curaçao and more nonstop flights to the Caribbean than any other airline,” said Robin Hayes, president of JetBlue, in a release. “This well preserved island is our 31st Caribbean destination, and is a favorite among diving enthusiasts for its healthy coral reefs, and is considered one of the nicest Caribbean escapes for discerning travelers thanks to its pristine beaches and clear water. These natural attractions make the island a natural choice for JetBlue.”
The service represents a boon for the island, which had seen arrival numbers from the United States dip in recent years.
