The Guadeloupe Islands Tourist Board is thrilled to announce that JetBlue will be expanding their portfolio by adding a new nonstop seasonal service between New York's John F. KennedyInternational Airport (JFK) and Guadeloupe's Pointe-à-Pitre International Airport (PTP). Roundtrip flights will operate three times per week on Saturdays, Mondays and Wednesdays starting February 1, 2020 through the end of April. Flights will then resume in November 2020.
Tickets went on sale on July 14th with a Bastille Day special introductory fare of $147 one way from JFK.
"A long-time favorite getaway spot for French and other Western Europeans travelers, we can't wait to introduce our JetBlue customers to this unique corner of the Caribbean," said Andrea Lusso, Director Route Planning, JetBlue. "And, as the only airline to serve Guadeloupe from the northeast, JetBlue adds yet another unique destination to our growing route map."
The Guadeloupe Islands will serve as a natural extension to JetBlue's Caribbean-leading strategy due to its diverse yet unique product offering that includes: five major islands to explore; black, gold and white sand beaches; a large range of accommodation options; cultural excursions; unmatched eco-tourism activities like hiking La Soufrière, waterfall canyoneering or diving; and of course, Art de Vivre and authenticity.
"JetBlue's new air service to Guadeloupe is highly anticipated by New Yorkers and Guadeloupeans," said Ary Chalus, President of the Guadeloupe Islands Tourist Board. "We will be celebrating the new route in New York with Brand Ambassador Willy Monfret and JetBlue during the Pinknic Festival, July 19-20 and again this coming February for the inaugural flight, just in time for our legendary three-month Carnival season."
The Guadeloupe Islands Tourist Board will be bringing The French Caribbean flavor to the Pinknic Festival this weekend in celebration of the new route with JetBlue. A special pop-up event will include a prize tent, a Meet & Greet with Brand Ambassador Willy Monfret and a few surprises along the way. Pinknic features delightful wines complemented with delicious food prepared by local chefs, as well as entertainment from world-renowned bands and DJs.
