JETBLUE SOARS INTO THE CAYMAN ISLANDS!
 
JetBlue soars into the Cayman Islands!
 
JetBlue Airways is launching two new services to the Cayman Islands! Commencing in November 15 2012, the US based airline known for its award-winning service and low fares, will operate a year round, non-stop service from New York, as well as a seasonal service from Boston.

Just in time for winter travel, the airline will serve Owen Roberts International Airport (GCM) with three times weekly service on Mondays, Thursdays and Saturdays from New York's John F. Kennedy International Airport (JFK) and Saturday service from Boston's Logan International Airport (BOS) beginning on November 17, 2012.

Grand Cayman will be JetBlue's 74th destination and the much anticipated new service will provide even more choice, flexibility and value for travelers looking to swap their winter blues for the warm, blue Caribbean Sea.
