JetBlue officials visited Grenada this week to finalize plans for the carrier’s inaugural flight from New York to Grenada in June.
The JetBlue delegation included Elizabeth Ninomiya, the company’s manager of corporate communications for Latin America and the Caribbean.

“This will give them plenty of time during the summer holiday to come and visit family, as well as come over and enjoy the carnival,” she said. “The bookings are actually going quite well. It’s been according to our expectations, so we are quite excited about that we are seeing so far.”
JetBlue plans to fly the route every Thursday and Sunday on 150-seat Airbus A320 aircraft.
