JetBlue finalized its winter schedule for its Caribbean routes.  The new, expanded schedule includes five new routes, and the deployment of larger aircraft to select destinations in the region.

Two of the new routes will depart from New York’s John F. Kennedy International Airport.  JetBlue will operate new service between JFK and both Port-au-Prince, Haiti, set to begin on December 5, and Port of Spain, Trinidad and Tobago, expected to begin February 24, 2014.  Both cities are new destinations for the airline.

From Fort Lauderdale-Hollywood International Airport in Florida, the carrier will operate new service to Port-au-Prince and Port of Spain as well.  Service to Port-au-Prince will begin on December 5, while service to Port of Spain will commence on May 1, 2014.

The airline will also operate new service from Chicago O’Hare to San Juan, Puerto Rico, beginning November 20.

In addition to the new routes, JetBlue will deploy Airbus A321 aircraft to various destinations this winter to accommodate more passengers.  From New York’s JFK, the carrier will deploy Airbus A321 aircraft on select flights to the following locations in the Caribbean: Bridgetown, Barbados; Nassau, Bahamas; San Juan, Puerto Rico; Santiago, Dominican Republic; and Santo Domingo, Dominican Republic.
