A new warm-weather route is coming to rescue travelers from the Northeast who are seeking a little taste of paradise this winter. It has been announced that JetBlue will be launching a new route between New York's John F. Kennedy International Airport (JFK) and the Guadeloupe Islands. The route will offer direct service between JFK and Guadeloupe's Pointe-à-Pitre International Airport (PTP). That means that the French Caribbean has never been closer or more affordable for many travelers.
Flights between New York and the sunny Guadeloupe Islands will be offered on Saturday, Mondays and Wednesdays. However, the route will be seasonal. It will run from Feb. 1 until the end of April. The good news is that travelers won't have to wait for February of 2021 to roll around before the route is offered again. It will kick off for seasonal service again in November of 2020.
It's not too early to begin planning a late-winter or early-spring trip to the Guadeloupe Islands. Tickets for the route between JFK and PTP officially went on sale on July 14. The Guadeloupe Islands are nestled in the Caribbean. The island group consists of six inhabited islands and several uninhabited islands. Visitors from around the world come to this destination to relax because it offers glowing white sand, volcanic peaks, dense forests, stunning lagoons and beautiful parks. In addition, this is considered to be one of the best diving spots on the planet.
JetBlue has been aggressively expanding its portfolio of Caribbean routes in recent months. The addition of a new route to the Guadeloupe Islands shows that the budget carrier wants to focus on offering options for getting to destinations that aren't quite as popular as the Caribbean islands that are considered to be go-to vacation spots. JetBlue will use its Airbus A320 aircraft for service to the Guadeloupe Islands.
