Service is set to begin on May 1, 2014. The airline will also begin once-daily non-stop service to POS from New York's JFK International Airport starting February 24, 2014. These flights are subject to receipt of government operating authority.
"We are dedicated to growing in South Florida and expanding our network to the Caribbean and Latin America," said Scott Laurence, vice president of network planning for JetBlue Airways. "We combine low fares with the best customer experience in the skies. Customers visiting the beautiful island of Trinidad and Tobago have dealt with high fares, cramped seating and limited choices for too long."
"We look forward to welcoming JetBlue and its award winning service to Trinidad and Tobago. JetBlue' s service to Port of Spain from New York and Fort Lauderdale will offer a high quality experience for business and leisure travelers alike. This is in keeping with governments' vision to grow the tourism sector," said The Honorable Chandresh Sharma, minister of tourism, Trinidad and Tobago. "The United States has traditionally been and continues to be one of our major trading partners. An efficient, reliable and affordable airlift is of critical importance in further capitalizing on the potential from the U.S. We look forward to a relationship that can engender new opportunities not just for Trinidad and Tobago, but also for the wider Caribbean region."
