JetBlue to launch new flight to Grand Cayman
JetBlue airlines is to launch a new service from Fort Lauderdale to Grand Cayman come October 2018.
JetBlue already has services to Owen Roberts International Airport (GMC); it started flying to the destination in 2012.
JetBlue flies between GMC and New York’s John F. Kennedy International Airport (JFK) and seasonally to Boston Logan International Airport (BOS).
JetBlue intends to operate the nonstop flights between Fort Lauderdale and GCM beginning in October 2018, subject to government approval, with seats set to go on sale in the coming weeks.
The new flight is expected to boost the airline’s presence in the island destination with a new link to South Florida.
The new routes also advance JetBlue’s position as the top airline at Fort Lauderdale-Hollywood, where the airline plans to operate 140 daily flights in the coming years.
Fort Lauderdale-Hollywood is one of JetBlue’s fast-growing focus cities, serving customers throughout South Florida and offering a fast and convenient alternative for Miami-Dade travelers.
If approved Grand Cayman will be the 59th nonstop destination offered from Fort Lauderdale-Hollywood and will open up a variety of new connecting opportunities between the Caribbean destinations and U.S. cities such as Washington, D.C., Philadelphia, Atlanta and multiple west coast markets.
