WILLEMSTAD, Curaçao – JetBlue Airways has announced its new non-stop service from New York to Curaçao. Beginning December 2, 2014, JetBlue will become the only airline to offer non-stop flights from New York to Curaçao.
“We have been working closely with the team at JetBlue to bring this flight to the island and are thrilled it has come to fruition and we’re able to announce it today,” said Curaçao’s Minister of Economic Development, Stanley Palm. “Curaçao continues to thrive as one of the Caribbean’s most diverse and culturally-rich islands and we look forward to now being able to share it with more visitors. New York is a top market for the island and we are confident that the new non-stop service on JetBlue will meet the demand we’ve seen from the northeast and international travelers alike.”
Flights will operate twice weekly, on Tuesdays and Saturdays between New York’s JFK International Airport and Curaçao’s International Airport. Flight service will depart New York at 9:00 a.m. on Tuesdays and Saturdays and arrive on island at 2:30 p.m. Return flights will depart Curaçao at 3:30 p.m. and arrive at 7:14 p.m.
“We are really excited to be able to offer customers the only nonstop route from New York to Curaçao and more nonstop flights to the Caribbean than any other airline,” said Robin Hayes, JetBlue’s President. “This beautiful island is our 31st Caribbean destination, and it is considered one of the nicest Caribbean escapes for discerning travelers thanks to its pristine beaches and clear waters.”
Curaçao is continuing to gain traction as one of the Caribbean’s premier islands. The new route allows even more travelers to seamlessly experience the island’s extraordinary cultural heritage and unrivalled offerings.
