Travelers from New York, in the United States (US), now have additional ways of getting to Bermuda as JetBlue has increased its flights to the island.

Bermuda’s Minister of Transport, Wayne Furbert, announced that the airline is offering two additional flights from the John F. Kennedy and LaGuardia International Airports

“Factoring in this additional airlift, there are now 32 commercial flights per week scheduled between Bermuda and New York metropolitan area airports. This is a vast increase from last year, when there were only 18 flights per week operating to and from the New York area,” said Furbert.

“We are delighted to have this expanded service from our leading tourism market – New York, enabling greater passenger traffic,” he continued.

Furbert added that “Bermudians love to travel, so this potential increase in availability will also be very welcome from the local traveler’s perspective. I am heartened to note that the removal of vaccination requirements for travel to the United States next week will also likely improve passenger numbers.”

The minister of transport shared that the airline’s flights will increase further when the daily summer service between Boston and Bermuda begins later this month.

“Combined with a recent confirmation of a new winter schedule starting in November, this means year-round flights to Boston have now returned,” he stated, adding that increasing airlift is a critical component to growing visitor arrivals.

He reiterated that air service development is a priority and noted that the Bermudan Ministry of Transport will continue working with their air service development team to engage all airline partners as they rebuild the country’s air service connections.
