JetBlue Airways has included several Caribbean destinations in its plans to expand its flights in preparation for increased travel.

JetBlue will launch several new flights to the Caribbean beginning November 19.

JetBlue will launch 24 new routes later this year as it targets cash generation and capturing traffic on “a variety of new, non-stop routes”.

That same day, JetBlue will also begin twice-daily flights from Newark to Dutch-speaking territories of Aruba and St Maarten as part of its expanded and exclusive Mint service which includes fully lie-flat seats and suites with doors for extra privacy.

Additionally, the airline will commission two new routes, operated daily, from the Raleigh–Durham International Airport in North Carolina to the Sangster International Airport and the, San Juan Luis Muñoz Marín International Airport in Puerto Rico.
