Getting to Barbados: An Airline Round-Up
Can you hear that? Listen closely because that’s the sound of Barbados’ white sand beaches and friendly people calling. Answering the call has never been easier with the island set to realise a seven percent increase in airlift during this winter season, having successfully negotiated several inaugural flights. Here are the highlights:
This New York City-based carrier has been serving Barbados since 2009 having launched with flights out of New York’s John F. Kennedy International Airport. On November 7th, 2015 the island welcomed two new JetBlue flights – a new Boston service and its new Mint service out of New York. Initially intended only as a seasonal offering, the premium Mint service has now been expanded to year-round, due to its overwhelming reception. The carrier has also announced plans for a daily non-stop service from Fort Lauderdale-Hollywood International Airport starting in April 2016.
On November 8th, Thomas Cook Airlines commenced a new weekly service to Barbados from Glasgow, Scotland. With flights operating every Sunday, this new service is expected to prove extremely popular with leisure passengers travelling from Scotland’s largest city.
