JetBlue launched service earlier today to a new Caribbean destination which I found to be quite interesting.
The airline began flying its twice-weekly service to Grenada’s Maurice Bishop International Airport (GND) from New York’s JFK.
With the addition of Grenada, JetBlue “now offers up to 152 daily flights from the U.S. to Latin America and the Caribbean, of which up to 61 daily flights are nonstop from New York JFK and Newark Liberty International Airport (EWR)” according to the JetBlue press release that I received.
I found this new flight interesting since I recently booked a quick trip to Grenada. While I want to visit as much of the world as possible, the reason I booked this trip was solely due to Club Carlson.
With the Club Carlson 2nd Night Free benefit ending, my goal was to use as many Gold Points as possible. While I still have more points than I hoped to, I was happy to get in a booking at the Radisson Grenada Beach Resort.
As for the flight, I already have that covered too thanks to AAdvantage miles.
Back to the JetBlue news…
JetBlue will be flying twice weekly from JFK to GND on Thursdays and Sundays:
- JFK – GND: 8:16 am – -1:12 pm
- GND – JFK: 2:08 pm – 7:18 pm
Grenada becomes JetBlue’s 90th destination and it will be flown on the “spacious Airbus A320 aircraft featuring the most legroom in coach, free first-run movies on flights to/from Grenada, and unlimited snacks and soft drinks“.
