JetBlue Will Fly Twice a Day to Belize and St. Kitts

American low-cost carrier JetBlue Airways announced that it will soon begin twice-daily flights from New York’s John F. Kennedy International Airport (JFK) to Belize and St. Kitts.

The New York City-based airline will use Airbus A320 aircraft for both routes, with travel time estimated to be around 2 hours and 15 minutes.

The addition of Belize and St. Kitts will bring JetBlue’s operating destinations in Caribbean to 15. The airline is already a leading carrier of U.S. tourists to popular Caribbean destinations such as the Dominican Republic, Jamaica and the Bahamas.

JetBlue’s expansion into Belize and St. Kitts is expected to further boost the Caribbean tourism industry, which was severely impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic. The airline’s low fares and convenient schedules make it an attractive option for travelers from the United States.

In 2022, the Dominican Republic welcomed a record number of visitors, and a significant number of those visitors arrived on JetBlue flights. The airline’s expansion into Belize and St. Kitts is likely to have a similar impact on those countries’ tourism.
