From the corporate website

NEW YORK–(BUSINESS WIRE)– JetBlue (Nasdaq: JBLU) today announced plans to continue expanding across the U.S. and the Caribbean, including the launch of two new destinations, bringing more low-fare, great service flights to customers in the airline’s New York, Boston Orlando, and Los Angeles focus cities.

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 (a).

JetBlue is also set to launch service between Los Angeles International Airport (LAX) and Lynden Pindling International Airport (NAS) in Nassau, Bahamas; Boston Logan International Airport (BOS) and Maurice Bishop International Airport (GND) in Grenada (a); and Orlando International Airport (MCO) and Raleigh-Durham International Airport (RDU) in North Carolina. Seats are out for sale today with fares as low as $59, $149, $159, and $179 (b).

“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.”

JetBlue – currently the sixth largest airline in the U.S. – is known for having the most legroom in coach (c), live television and on-demand entertainment on every seatback, free and fast Fly-Fi broadband internet (d), complimentary snacks and soft drinks and great customer service.

Connecting New York to Popular Caribbean Destinations

JetBlue’s growth in the Caribbean is part of a broader reach into international markets. In recent years, the airline has built a robust network throughout Latin America and the Caribbean. With JetBlue’s entry into St. Kitts and Nevis and Belize, the airline will now operate in 27 countries within the region and introduce a new era of customer-focused, low-fare travel for leisure and visiting family and friends travelers. As a leader at JFK, JetBlue’s new routes to Belize and St. Kitts are part of JetBlue’s strategy to continue to grow in under-served geographies while bringing more choices and options for our customers. JetBlue will now serve 29 countries from JFK and will offer an average of up to 192 departures per day during peak periods.

Service from New York (JFK) to St. Kitts will begin November 2 bringing a new choice to a route with limited competition today. St. Kitts is the larger of two islands that make up the Federation of St. Kitts and Nevis. St. Kitts boasts a wealth of cultural attractions, lush greenery, pristine beaches, majestic volcanic peaks, and vibrant festivals that showcase the island’s unique heritage and traditions.

We welcome JetBlue’s announcement of nonstop, 3x weekly service from New York to St. Kitts as a testament to the growing interest in our beautiful island,” said Honourable Dr. Terrance Drew, Prime Minister of St. Kitts & Nevis. “This addition not only adds year-round airlift capacity for the growing travel demand but also enhances the tourism industry, thus generating economic activity for our nationals and residents. I look forward to a positive and mutually beneficial fruitful partnership with JetBlue as we work to create a self-sustaining nation and premier tourism destination.”

St. Kitts Water Services Advises Of Severe Dry Season

In St. Kitts, our Public Water Supply is 100% dependent on rainfall. According to information from our Meteorological Services, so far for 2021 (Jan-April) we have received a total of approximately 6 inches of Rainfall. In 2020 for the same period, we received a total of 12 inches; the long term (climatological) average for this period is 15 inches. We have therefore received half of the rainfall we received last year and a third of what is typical or normal.

This translates to a Severe Dry Season or Drought. The Water Services Department has been doing our best to cope with this lack of rainfall. We are now asking all citizens/residents to do their part to conserve what little water we have:

Starting immediately:

(1) Check your premises for any leaks and have them repaired immediately.

(2) Report any suspected leaks to the Water Services Department (467-1005/467-1447) or 664-9119

(3) Persons caught watering grass/lawn will be disconnected from the Public Supply.

(4) Avoid the use of hoses to wash vehicles and buildings; use a bucket

(5) Certain non-domestic users of water will be limited

(6) Please monitor your usage of water and be as conservative as practicable.

The co-operation of all is greatly appreciated. We regret any inconvenience which may be due to the periodic interruption in supply as a result of low storage in our reservoirs.

For more information regarding the Water Services Department, contact the Communications Officer, Che-Raina Warner at 467-1464.
