Even More Space seats on JetBlue aircraft

JetBlue Airways announced a new start date for its new non-stop service to Georgetown, Guyana, which was originallyslated to start on April 2, 2020.

The New York-based airline will begin to offer service between John F. Kennedy International Airport and Cheddi Jagan International Airport starting December 11, 2020.

The carrier will operate the route using its new A321neo aircraft.

“Guyana service introduces a diverse and underserved destination to the JetBlue route map which will benefit both leisure travelers, as well as those visiting friends and relatives,” said Andrea Lusso, the airline’s director of route planning, at the time the service was announced.

Known for its rainforests, mountain ranges, and beaches, Guyana will become JetBlue’s fourth destination in South America.

The new route will be made possible by the addition of Airbus A321neo aircraft to JetBlue’s fleet. The A321neo has a longer range and higher fuel capacity than the carrier’s other planes. The airline took delivery of its first one in 2019.

The A321neo has 42 Even More Space premium-economy lite seats which are 18” wide and have 35” to 38” in seat pitch, and 158 seats in coach.
