The round-trip five-hour flight will operate once weekly with departures from Barbados on Thursdays and flights from New York on Saturdays.
The airline’s CEO, Garvin Medera, said, “This is a significant milestone for Caribbean Airlines, and reiterates our commitment to giving our customers options and access to regional and international destinations.
Caribbean Airlines has been severely impacted by the coronavirus which resulted in a 71 per cent fall-off in its passengers as international borders closed and tourism all but halted during the pandemic.
