JetBlue says it will start making seats on the new service available for purchase in the coming weeks.

The carrier will operate its Fort Lauderdale-Barbados route with Airbus A320s.

Fort Lauderdale Hollywood International Airport (IATA code FLL) will become the third airport from which JetBlue will offer non-stop flights to Barbados.

The airline launched service to Barbados from New York JFK in 2009 and will begin Saturdays-only seasonal service from Boston Logan International Airport to Barbados on November 7.

On the same day, JetBlue will also launch weekly seasonal premium-class Mint service between New York and Barbados.

Additionally, seasonal Saturday Mint service between Boston and Barbados will begin in March 2016.

JetBlue now operates nearly 100 flights per day to more than 40 destinations from Fort Lauderdale Hollywood International Airport.

The airline is launching service to eight new destinations this year from the South Florida airport and has already announced three more new services from Fort Lauderdale to begin in 2016.
