US cheap flights carrier JetBlue Airways is launching new flights to St Lucia from New York today (October 28th).
Non-stop flights are in operation to the island’s Hewanorra International Airport from John F Kennedy Airport (JFK) on Mondays, Thursdays and Sundays.
Marty St George, Jet Blue Airway’s senior vice president of marketing and commercial strategy, said the carrier is "focused" on offering new flights to the Caribbean.
"We are confident that in addition to our low fares, St Lucians will find JetBlue is a refreshing way to travel," he commented.
Flights are operated using an Airbus A320 aircraft, which has a capacity of 150 people. Passengers travelling on the route will be able to connect to onward JetBlue Airways flights on arriving in New York.
Earlier this month, the airline introduced flights to Barbados from the Big Apple.
The route is operated on identical aircraft between JFK and Grantley Adams International Airport in Bridgetown.
