JetBlue Airways is relaunching its service to Guadeloupe in the French Caribbean, Caribbean Journal has learned.
The Guadeloupe Islands Tourist Board confirmed that the New York City-based carrier will be relaunching what is right now its only flight service to the French Caribbean.
Beginning Nov. 5, JetBlue will operate three flights per week between New York’s John F. Kennedy International’s Airport and Pointe a Pitre International Airport.
JetBlue will be operating the service on Mondays, Wednesdays and Saturdays.
It’s a significant boost for a wonderfully diverse destination that still remains far off the radar of most travelers.
The flights accompany existing service from New York to Guadeloupe currently operated by Air France.
Are you heading to Guadeloupe?
It’s important to remember that Guadeloupe is actually an archipelago, with two main islands, Grande-Terre and Basse-Terre, separated by a narrow channel; and a number of smaller islands reachable by ferry service: Terre de Haut, Marie-Galante and La Desirade among others.
The destination ranges from lush rainforests to sparkling beaches, with a rum industry that’s among the most robust in the Caribbean.
That’s particularly true on the island of Marie-Galante, a laid-back beach destination that just so happens to have three terrific rum distilleries on an island of around 10,000 people.
And then there’s Terre de Haut, the centerpiece of the marvelous Les Saintes chain of islets, along with the naturally beautiful La Desirade.
