JetBlue launches St. Maarten service

JetBlue Airways Corporation is launching flights between the Northeast and St. Maarten’s Princess Juliana International Airport Operating Company N.V. (SXM) with nonstop, daily year-round service from New York’s John F. Kennedy Airport (JFK).

To celebrate its new St. Maarten service, JetBlue is currently offering a special $99 (a) sale fare each way between the island and New York/JFK. Travel must be booked by Thursday, January 24 at 11:59 p.m. MT. Regular one-way fares between New York and St. Maarten start as low as $154 (a) each way.

“We want our customers to travel in style and comfort, whether it’s more legroom in our all-leather seats, free snacks, complimentary movies or our award-winning personal and sincere service,” said Dave Barger, CEO of JetBlue Airways. “They also deserve more affordable flights from the Northeast to the Caribbean, and we’re excited to offer daily year-round fares that are almost 30 percent lower than pre- JetBlue fares from New York to the beautiful island destination of St. Maarten. Lower fares means you have more of your budget to spend in beautiful St. Maarten or one of our 10 other Caribbean destinations.”

“We are very pleased to welcome JetBlue into our airport family,” said drs. Eugene Holiday, President of Princess Juliana International Airport. He continues, “The start of the service will bring increased choices and connections for the traveling public between St. Maarten/St. Martin, the region we serve and the U.S.”

” JetBlue’s nonstop, daily year-round service from New York’s John F. Kennedy Airport, will allow greater opportunities for development of our tourism product,” comments Commissioner of Tourism Roy Marlin. “This new flight will mean easier and more accessible travel to and from St. Maarten and the Caribbean, as well as provide more options for visitors wishing to vacation on our beautiful island. We are encouraged by this new opportunity and look forward to welcoming visitors from the United States and beyond through this new connection.”


St. Maarten is JetBlue’s 11th Caribbean/Atlantic destination, joining: Aruba; Bermuda; Cancun; Nassau; Aguadilla, Ponce and San Juan, Puerto Rico; and Puerto Plata, Santiago and Santo Domingo, Dominican Republic. Service between 11 JetBlue destinations and St. Maarten is also available with easy and convenient connections at JetBlue’s hometown airport, JFK, including: Boston; Las Vegas; and Washington, D.C./Dulles.
