Good news for JetBlue loyalists — the airline is adding a bunch of new routes to the Caribbean

Time to get out of here for some island time on JetBlue

Attention travelers: JetBlue just announced plans to continue its expansion of flights—both in and outside of the U.S.—and some of those destinations just happen to be in the Caribbean. We already know that most Americans don’t take enough vacation time (and you shouldn’t let that be you). If island time is calling for you, now is your chance to visit those beautiful white beaches and crystal blue water for under $200 on one of these JetBlue flights. So, what are you waiting for? Your feet could be in the sand come this November!

What are the new routes?

The airliner is adding destinations from New York, Boston, Orlando, and Los Angeles to begin with. “Launching later this year, JetBlue will now offer nonstop flights to two new destinations from New York’s John F. Kennedy International Airport (JFK): Robert Llewellyn Bradshaw International Airport (SKB) in St. Kitts and Nevis and Philip S. W. Goldson International Airport (BZE) in Belize City, Belize,” the company said in a press release.

JetBlue will also be launching flights from Los Angeles International Airport (LAX) to Lynden Pindling International Airport (NAS) in Nassau, Bahamas (the first airline to offer a nonstop route); and from Boston Logan International Airport (BOS) to Maurice Bishop International Airport (GND) in Grenada. They are also adding a non-Caribbean flight option from Orlando International Airport (MCO) to Raleigh-Durham International Airport (RDU) in North Carolina beginning on November 2. This route will be offered once daily, connecting the two cities.

OK, tell me more

If you need more info on the JetBlue flights schedule, let us break it down. Flights from New York to St. Kitts will be available on Tuesdays, Thursdays, and Sundays starting on November 2. The flights from New York to Belize City will run on Mondays, Wednesdays, and Saturdays, beginning on December 6, 2023. If you live in LA (or can get there relatively easily, the flights to Nassau will operate on Saturdays starting on November 4. If you’re in Boston, getting to Grenada will happen also on Saturdays beginning on that same date. Who doesn’t want to leave the cold of Boston in November for some time in the sun?

What can I expect to pay?

Seats on these flights are available now, and we’re seeing fares as low as $59, depending on your route and the dates you want to travel. There are other fares from $149, $159, and $179, making it one of the lowest to travel to Caribbean destinations on the market.

“We are proud to continue diversifying our network and to introduce even more options to connect our customers in our focus cities of New York, Boston, Orlando, and Los Angeles to the places they want to fly, bringing more great service and everyday low fares to more customers,” said David Jehn, vice president, network planning and partnerships, JetBlue. “These new routes will position JetBlue to deliver even more growth and connectivity to popular destinations, while also furthering the airline’s significant presence across Latin America and the Caribbean.”

The United States is seeing a significant uptick in new passport applications as travelers seek new experiences in 2023 and beyond. In response, the U.S. Department of State is hitting the road, giving prospective travelers in select states a unique way to apply for passports.

The Department of State passport initiative is called “Special Acceptance Passport Fairs.” The fairs will take place in local public libraries, recreation centers, and city administrative offices. Travelers should only attend the fairs if they are looking to submit a new passport application. The passport process for renewals can be done via mail. Unfortunately, there’s still no option to renew your passport online — that would be too easy.

Everyone has their favorite airline they stay loyal to — and the airline they swear they'll never fly again, even if it was because of one flight experience. If you've ever wondered if anyone else has a deep distrust of the same airline or airport you do, let's find out. Price4Limo analyzed both Twitter and data from the U.S. Department of Transportation to see which airlines and airports people complained about most, and what their dissatisfaction was about.
Which ones are topping Twitter
Keep in mind that Twitter is where people go to make a grumble rather than to give a compliment. But keywords (like "angry," "horrible," and "frustrated") were flagged and totaled up.
