JetBlue announced this week that it will be adding a new nonstop seasonal service between New York's John F. Kennedy International Airport (JFK) and Guadeloupe's Pointe-à-Pitre International Airport (PTP).
Roundtrip flights will operate three times per week on Saturdays, Mondays and Wednesdays, starting Feb. 1, 2020, through the end of April. Flights will then resume in November 2020. Tickets are on sale now. With the Bastille Day special introductory fare, travelers can take a one-way trip from JFK for only $147.
"A long-time favorite getaway spot for French and other Western Europeans travelers, we can't wait to introduce our JetBlue customers to this unique corner of the Caribbean," said Andrea Lusso, director of route planning for JetBlue.
The Guadeloupe Islands will serve as a natural extension to JetBlue's Caribbean-leading strategy, due to its diverse yet unique product offerings, which include: Five major islands to explore; black, gold and white sand beaches; a large range of accommodations options; cultural excursions; unmatched eco-tourism activities, like hiking La Soufrière, waterfall canyoneering or diving; and of course, Art de Vivre and authenticity.
JetBlue will operate its Guadeloupe service using Airbus A320 aircraft offering the airline's award-winning service featuring the most legroom in coach; free Fly-Fi, the fastest broadband internet in the sky; complimentary and unlimited name-brand snacks and soft drinks; free, live DIRECTV® programming and 100-plus channels of SiriusXM® radio at every seat.
"As the only airline to serve Guadeloupe from the Northeast, JetBlue adds yet another unique destination to our growing route map," said Lusso.
