Providenciales Airport celebrated the arrival of JetBlue Airways’ inaugural service from Fort Lauderdale on 19 November with this impressive culinary cake. The 933-kilometre sector will be operated daily by the airline’s E190s facing no direct competition.
- JetBlue Airways inaugurated three new routes from Fort Lauderdale (FLL) on 19 November to Charleston (CHS) and Philadelphia (PHL) in the US and Providenciales (PLS) in the Turks and Caicos Islands. Services to Philadelphia will operate twice-daily using the carrier’s fleet of A320s in direct competition with American Airlines and Southwest Airlines. The 756- and 933-kilometre sectors to Charleston and Providenciales will both be flown by the airline’s fleet of E190s, with neither facing any incumbent carriers. JetBlue will further add to its Fort Lauderdale base later this year with the launch of flights to Albany on 10 December, while Barbados, Nashville and Quito (in Ecuador) services will start in 2016.
