In preparation for its inaugural passenger flight during the month of June, JetBlue Airways is making a test run this morning at the Maurice Bishop International Airport.
An airport official has confirmed that the flight is schedule to touch down at Maurice Bishop International Airport at 10:25 am and will remain on island for approximately 3 hours.
“It’s not a commercial flight, there will be no passengers on board, it’s just a test run to get the pilot, engineers and other technical personnel acquainted with the Grenada environment,” the official explained.
JetBlue is schedule to commence twice-weekly flights to Grenada from New York’s John F Kennedy International Airport on Thursdays and Sundays as of 11 June. The airline will serve the route with a 150-seat Airbus A320 aircraft featuring the most leg room in coach, free first-run movies on flights to and from Grenada, and unlimited free snacks and soft drinks.
Grenada will be the airline’s 90th destination, and its 32nd destination in the Caribbean and Latin America.
