JetBlue Airways announced the start of thrice-weekly service linking New York City with Guadeloupe.

Guadeloupe is an archipelago and an overseas region of France in the Caribbean. As such it is part of the European Union, and uses the euro as its currency, but it is not part of the Schengen Area. Tourism is a key industry and over 80% of visitors come from France.

The airline had announced plans for the new route on Bastille Day, France’s national holiday that commemorates the storming of the Bastille on July 14, 1789.

The carrier is operating the flights between John F. Kennedy International Airport to Pointe-à-Pitre International Airport on Saturdays, Mondays, and Wednesdays, starting February 1, 2020, using Airbus A320 aircraft.

JetBlue offers the only air service linking Guadeloupe with the northeastern United States.
