Major United States airline JetBlue will commence flights to St. Vincent and the Grenadines this year.
This was announced by Minister of Tourism, Civil Aviation, Sustainable Development and Culture Carlos James at the State of the Tourism Industry address on Tuesday.
Minister James said that negotiations are currently ongoing with three carriers but he was only able to speak publicly about JetBlue airways at the time.
“We continue to work closely with other airlines to improve airlift capacity. In a few weeks we will announce at least one new additional airline which is expected to enter the destination by year end. These airlines, we are still closely negotiating, we are looking at least three carriers likely to come into the destination between this year and next year, but I can safely say we already would have secured JetBlue to come to the destination this year, 2024,” he said.
Minister James said that due to current ongoing negotiations, he could not say more about the other carriers, but reaffirmed that JetBlue airlines will be landing in St. Vincent and the Grenadines in 2024.
JetBlue operates over 1,000 flights daily and serves 100 domestic and international network destinations in the United States, Canada, Mexico, the Caribbean, Central America, South America, and Europe.
