JetBlue launches service to Cayman Islands
Published on November 16, 2012 Email To Friend    Print Version

NEW YORK, USA -- JetBlue Airways on Thursday commenced flights to its newest Caribbean destination, Grand Cayman in the Cayman Islands, from New York's John F. Kennedy International Airport (JFK) with three times weekly service on Mondays, Thursdays and Saturdays JFK to Owen Roberts International Airport (GCM). Saturday-only service to the Cayman Islands from Boston's Logan International Airport (BOS) will begin this Saturday, November 17.

"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," said Scott Laurence, JetBlue's vice president of network planning and partnerships. "The pristine white-sand beaches, friendly people, and host of dining, shopping and nightlife options make for a perfect vacation."

"We are delighted to welcome JetBlue, one of the world's leading airlines, to our island," said premier and minister of tourism, McKeeva Bush. "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."

"In a few days, these Islands will record 60 years of land-based aviation. 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; and in fact, the Cayman Islands 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!" remarked Richard Arch, chairman of the board of the Cayman Islands Airports Authority.

JetBlue's flights to Grand Cayman from Boston and New York will be operated with its Airbus A320 fleet.
