Planning a tropical getaway just got easier thanks to new flights from JetBlue to several popular destinations in the Caribbean.

The New York-based airline recently announced an expansion that includes numerous new routes to trending Caribbean islands.

This comes after JetBlue announced new direct flights to Tulum, Mexico beginning in June.

Here's a look at JetBlue's latest expansion, and where travelers will soon be able to go on the airline as it introduces new routes to the Caribbean's hottest destinations.

New Flights To San Juan, Puerto Rico

JetBlue already flies nonstop to San Juan, Puerto Rico from eight U.S. East Coast cities, but the airline is introducing two new routes from cities that don't currently have any flights to San Juan.

San Juan, Puerto Rico, Latin America, United States

Beginning October 27, 2024, travelers will be able to fly to San Juan, Puerto Rico (SJU) nonstop from Providence, Rhode Island (PVD) and Westchester County, New York (HPN.)

This will make it even easier for East Coast travelers to get to Puerto Rico, which is one of the trendiest destinations in the Caribbean right now.

San Juan is the perfect place to base yourself for a few days as you explore the island.

The city has an amazing colonial center with colorful old buildings, cobblestone streets, and historic fortresses.

It's also close to many great beaches (you don't even have to leave the city for some of them!) and only an hour from El Yunque, the rainforest in Puerto Rico's interior, where you can try all kinds of adventurous activities.

Americans don't even need a passport to visit Puerto Rico, making it the perfect destination for an easy Caribbean getaway this year.

New Flights To St. Vincent

Another new route that JetBlue just announced in New York, New York (JFK) to St. Vincent (SVD) which will launch sometime this fall.

This is exciting news because there are very few nonstop flights from the U.S. to the beautiful island nation of St. Vincent and the Grenadines (only two aside from this new JetBlue route.)

St. Vincent is a lesser-visited island in the Caribbean, but that could change now that a brand-new Sandals Resort with more than 300 guest rooms recently opened there.

And this new flight will make it easier than ever for travelers to discover the beauty of St. Vincent.

New Flights To Bonaire

JetBlue has also announced a new nonstop service from New York, New York (JFK) to Bonaire (BON) which is also set to begin this fall.

Although it's not as popular as neighboring ABC Islands Aruba and Curacao, Bonaire is a beautiful underrated gem with some of the best beaches, snorkeling, and scuba diving in the Caribbean.

It's an amazing destination for a tropical getaway that will now be more accessible to travelers with the launch of this brand-new flight route.

Other New Flights From JetBlue

While the flights above are the only new routes from mainland U.S. cities, JetBlue has also announced several new intra-Caribbean flight routes, which is an interesting new development.

Historically, it's been difficult to island-hop and fly between many Caribbean destinations — you'd often need to fly back to the U.S. and connect first.

But now, JetBlue is launching the following new routes:

  • San Juan, Puerto Rico (SJU) to Cancun, Mexico (CUN)
  • San Juan, Puerto Rico (SJU) to St. Croix, USVI (STX)
  • San Juan, Puerto Rico (SJU) to Santiago, Dominican Republic (STI)

This makes it easier to visit multiple destinations in the Caribbean in just one trip. For example, you could fly to San Juan and then hop over to St. Croix, another U.S. territory that's part of the U.S. Virgin Islands.
