JetBlue Airways has begun selling tickets for its planned new service between New York JFK and Antigua’s V.C. Bird International Airport.
Subject to receiving the required government operating authority, JetBlue Airways will begin operating three-times-weekly round-trips on the New York JFK-Antigua route on November 5. Originally the airline announced, on May 4, that it would begin serving Antigua on November 7.
The airline will operate its New York JFK-Antigua service on Tuesdays, Thursdays and Sundays. Antigua will become JetBlue’s 92nd destination.
JetBlue is now offering an introductory one-way fare of $199 from New York JFK to Antigua, valid on flights from November 5 to December 13, 2015. All introductory-fare tickets must be purchased by June 26.
“As our 35th destination in the Latin America and Caribbean region, Antigua offers another opportunity to grow our network in high-value geographies and strengthen JetBlue’s position as the leading brand for Caribbean travel,” says Umang Gupta, director of JetBlue Getaways and leisure sales. “We know Antigua will attract travelers to discover its spectacular 365 beaches.”
JetBlue’s schedule for its New York JFK-Antigua service calls for its flights to depart New York JFK (IATA code JFK) at 9:20 a.m. on Tuesdays, Thursdays and Sundays from November 5 and land at Antigua’s V.C. Bird International Airport (ANU) at 2:34 p.m. local time.
In the other direction, JetBlue’s return flights will leave ANU at 3:30 p.m. on Tuesdays, Thursdays and Sundays from November 5 and reach JFK at 7:18 p.m. local time.
JetBlue will serve the route with Airbus A320 jets.
