JetBlue to Launch New York-Antigua Flights
JetBlue Airways announced that it will begin service between New York and Antigua, an island in the east Caribbean, on November 5 this year. The carrier will operate the service three times a week, using Airbus A320 planes.
Flights will depart John F. Kennedy International Airport at 9:20 a.m. on Tuesdays, Thursdays, and Sundays, and will arrive at Antigua’s V.C. Bird International Airport at 2:34 p.m. Flights from Antigua to New York will depart at 3:30 p.m. and arrive at 7:18 p.m., also on Tuesdays, Thursdays, and Sundays.
JetBlue’s Airbus A320 planes are configured with 42 seats in Even More Space, the airline’s premium economy lite section, and 108 seats in coach. Premium economy lite-seats are 17.8” wide, and have a pitch of 38” to 39”.
Antigua will become JetBlue’s 92nd destination. Earlier this month, the airline began service between JFK and Grenada, an island nation in the Southeastern Caribbean.
