Beginning Nov. 4th, getting to Grenada will be easier for Bostonians with the launch of JetBlue’s new nonstop Boston-to-Grenada service—the only service between Boston and the “Spice Island”—featuring the airline’s premium Mint service. The flight departs Boston Logan International Airport (BOS) at 8 a.m. and arrives at Grenada’s Maurice Bishop International Airport (GND) at 1:43 p.m. The return flight departs GND at 3:03 p.m. and arrives at BOS at 7:04 p.m.
The new service will be JetBlue’s second option to Grenada. The carrier currently offers daily nonstop service from New York’s John F. Kennedy International Airport (JFK) to GND.
“Tourism is a crucial pillar to the success of Grenada, and we are thrilled about this expanded service from JetBlue as it will allow us to welcome more visitors to the destination,” said Hon. Lennox Andrews, Minister for Economic Development, Planning, Tourism and ICT, Creative Economy, Agriculture and Lands, Fisheries and Cooperatives in a media announcement. “Grenada continues to grow in popularity as a vacation destination and this service expansion is a testament to the work we are doing, with our partners, to continually improve our tourism product.”
“As one of the premier destinations in the Caribbean, we are pleased to be bringing additional JetBlue service to Grenada,” said Robin Hayes, JetBlue’s CEO. “The destination has continued to perform well and we expect that with more ways for our customers to reach its idyllic shores, the future of our partnership looks even brighter.”
JetBlue Added Service to Grenada During Busy Summer
JetBlue recently bolstered its service to Grenada during the busy summer season, increasing capacity from an A320 to the 200-seat A321 and adding a second daily nonstop from JFK.
“This uptick in service from JetBlue ladders up to our ongoing efforts to improve the destination’s offerings to attract more visitors to experience why we are truly the spice isle of the Caribbean,” said Petra Roach, CEO of the Grenada Tourism Authority. “We’ve been hard at work, not only bringing on board new events and experiences, but diligently working with travel advisors, keeping them in the know, as well as improving the quality of service visitors can expect once they arrive.”
