- JetBlue Airways began service on 11 June between New York JFK (JFK) and Grenada (GND). The 3,391-kilometre sector will operate twice-weekly on Thursdays and Sundays, and will be flown using the carrier’s A320s. The airport pair will face direct competition from Caribbean Airlines (twice-weekly flights) and Delta Air Lines (weekly flights) according to OAG Schedules Analyser data. This summer JetBlue will be serving 67 destinations non-stop from JFK, up from 64 last summer. Apart from Grenada, the airline has added new service to Curacao (last December) and Reno (on 28 May). “We are thrilled to launch non-stop service between New York and Grenada,” said Dave Clark, VP Network Planning, JetBlue. “Grenada is one of the most beautiful and adventurous destinations in the Caribbean, and our new non-stop service makes it much easier to get there. Whether you go for the white sand beaches, world class diving, flagship resorts, or rich history, we know you will want to return again and again.”
