KINGSTON, Jamaica – Jamaica today welcomed JetBlue’s second daily nonstop flight from New York’s John F. Kennedy International Airport (JFK) to Kingston. The increased service is part of the airline’s summer schedule and it reaffirms the value airline’s commitment to Jamaica and the capital city, Kingston.

“We are excited to welcome JetBlue’s second daily flight from New York to Kingston. This additional flight is perfectly timed to welcome our visitors for the summer to experience the island’s vibrant culture and exciting events. We look forward to accommodating guests in Kingston, the island’s cultural and entertainment capital, and showing everyone that Kingston is a happening city,” said Jamaica’s Director of Tourism John Lynch. “Our successful partnership with JetBlue continues to boost Jamaica’s airline capacity, making the destination even more accessible.”

“Our increased service solidifies JetBlue’s commitment to Jamaica, which has been one of our best startup routes to date,” said JetBlue’s Manager Caribbean & Latin America Chad Meyerson. “JetBlue and Jamaica will continue to enjoy a mutually successful and positive partnership as we broaden our network and encourage more visitors to experience the thrill of the island’s culture.”

The second daily JetBlue flight departs JFK at 2:00 p.m., arriving in KIN at 5:04 p.m. The return flight departs KIN at 6:00 p.m. and arrives at JFK at 10:56 p.m.
