JET BLUE NOW OFFERS NEW DIRECT SERVICE TO SAINT LUCIA FROM BOSTON!
Saturday, November 1st will mark the introduction of JetBlue's new direct service from Boston, USA to Saint Lucia with this new flight operating throughout the winter of 2014/2015.
“JetBlue began flying to St. Lucia from New York in October 2009 offering direct service three times a week from JFK before rapidly moving to daily service from this major US gateway” said the Director of Tourism Mr. Louis Lewis. He further added that “The flights proved to be so successful that JetBlue was keen to open up a new gateway to Saint Lucia, and in collaboration with the Saint Lucia Tourist Board identified the Boston market as ideal for travel to Saint Lucia. The Jetblue Boston service will also open up a number of additional gateways to Saint Lucia through the Logan airport in Boston with specific benefits to the MidWest States.
"The continuation of the daily service out of New York and this additional once a week service from Boston is a clear indication of the confidence that the JetBlue team has in the current development path of Saint Lucia's tourism sector,” added Mr. Lewis.
Ahead of the departure of this inaugural flight the Saint Lucia Tourist Board collaborated with JetBlue's marketing team to stage a series of media, trade and consumer promotional activities in Boston, namely:
Thursday October 30th -
Media Event featuring Chef Nina Compton at Seaport Test Kitchen, Boston MA.
Friday October 31st -
Saint Lucia Flag-Raising Ceremony to commemorate the New Service at Boston City Hall Plaza, Boston MA. Friday October 31st - Meet and Greet of the Saint Lucia Boston Diaspora Roxbury College, Roxbury, MA.
The Minister of Tourism, Heritage and Creative Industries, Honorable Lorne Theophilus and other officials from the Saint Lucia Tourist Board were in attendance at all the activities before departing Boston for Saint Lucia on this inaugural flight.
JetBlue has scheduled its spacious 150-seat Airbus A320 aircraft on this route and offers travelers all the amenities for which the airline has become revered. Combined with its extremely competitive fares between the USA and St. Lucia, it is expected to stimulate significantly more visitors for the island this winter period.
