Connecting New York to two new Caribbean destinations

JetBlue’s growth in the Caribbean is part of a broader reach into international markets where the airline’s great customer service and low fares have made it a leading airline. In recent years, the airline has built a robust network throughout Latin America and the Caribbean. With JetBlue’s entry into St. Vincent and the Grenadines and Bonaire, the airline will now operate in more than 25 countries in the region.

St. Vincent and the Grenadines, comprised of 32 islands and cays, is renowned for its warm people, volcanic landscapes, black and white sand beaches, and pristine sailing waters, representing the quintessential Caribbean paradise.
