JetBlue Airways expands Caribbean services

JetBlue Airways is launching its low-fare service and preferred product to its newest Caribbean destination, Providenciales, in the Turks & Caicos Islands.

Providenciales will be JetBlue’s 16th successful destination in the Caribbean. Daily flights from New York’s John F. Kennedy Airport (JFK) begin today, and weekly Saturday service will begin on Feb. 19 from Boston Logan International Airport. To celebrate the opening of its newest destination, customers can enter to win a JetBlue Getaways vacation package, complete with roundtrip airfare for two to Turks & Caicos and hotel accommodations for four days and three nights, and other great prizes at (a).

“We’re excited to begin this new Caribbean adventure,” said Scott Laurence, JetBlue’s vice president of network planning. “Providenciales and the more than 40 islands that make up the Turks and Caicos are a perfect addition to our wide array of Caribbean leisure destinations. We know our customers will enjoy the islands as much as they enjoy the JetBlue Experience, complete with more options and entertainment.”

“The entire Turks and Caicos is pleased to have JetBlue providing service to our Islands,” said Ralph Higgs, Director of the Turks and Caicos Tourist Board. “JetBlue’s brand complements our destination’s attributes beautifully; this is a win-win situation for all involved.” 

“The Turks and Caicos Islands Airports Authority joins the many others, stakeholders and passengers alike, in welcoming JetBlue to its developing Providenciales International Airport,” said John T. Smith, CEO of the Turks and Caicos Islands Airports Authority. “We look forward to a long, strong and symbiotic relationship.”


JetBlue will operate its Providenciales service with spacious 150-seat Airbus A320 aircraft.  The A320 offers travelers all of the amenities for which JetBlue has become well-regarded: complimentary seatback television programming including free first-run movies (b), comfortable leather seats, the most legroom in coach of any U.S. airline (c), unlimited free snacks and industry-leading customer service. JetBlue’s live in-flight entertainment system boasts 36 channels of free DIRECTV(r) programming and more than 100 channels of free XM Radio(r) on personal seatback TVs.
