Looking for a deal on a beach getaway? JetBlue has just announced plans to add the island country of Grenada as its newest Caribbean destination.
The airline plans to add two flights a week between New York JFK and Grenada’s Maurice Bishop International Airport (GND), starting June 11, 2015. The current plans include one round-trip flight route to be flown on Thursdays and another on Sundays.
JetBlue Flights to Grenada
The JetBlue flight to Grenada will carry passengers aboard a 150-seat Airbus A320 aircraft which features plenty of legroom in coach. Passengers on these flights will enjoy extras including first-run movies and unlimited snacks at no extra charge.
If all goes according to plans, tickets for these flights will be available for sale following government approval. When they get that approval, Grenada will become JetBlue’s 90th destination and it’s 32nd in the Caribbean and Latin America.
“We cannot wait to add Grenada to our network of Caribbean destinations. Grenada is one of the most beautiful and adventurous destinations in the Caribbean, and our new nonstop service will make 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.” Dave Clark, JetBlue’s vice president, network planning.

JetBlue is no stranger to all the Caribbean has to offer. They feature deals, including all-inclusive options to places like Grand Cayman, Aruba, Cancun, St. Lucia, the Dominican Republic, the Turks and Caicos Islands, Puerto Rico, Jamaica, and the U.S. Virgin Islands.
Granada Offers Plenty to Do
