The new daily flights, to be operated with Embraer E190 jets, will be the only international service out of Westchester County Airport (HPN), and JetBlue’s only flight from HPN which does not go to Florida.

JetBlue’s current Westchester route lineup consists of Orlando, West Palm Beach, Fort Lauderdale, Fort Myers and Tampa. The airline serves Nassau nonstop from Boston, New York-JFK, Fort Lauderdale and Orlando.

“JetBlue is excited to provide our Westchester and Fairfield County customers a simpler and more convenient way to access the Caribbean from their easy-in, easy-out local airport,” said Dave Barger, CEO of JetBlue Airways, in a statement. “We’re equally as proud to offer the only regularly scheduled non-stop service from Westchester to the Caribbean, and to work with such great partners at the Nassau Paradise Island Board. Plus, our first flight will be offered just in time for customers to travel to the Bahamas to see the national champion UConn Huskies Men’s Basketball team in action as they compete in the Battle 4 Atlantis tournament!”

“JetBlue has been an outstanding partner at our airport and we look forward to this continuing,” Westchester County Executive Robert P. Astorino said.

“This addition of nonstop service from Westchester to Nassau represents the continuing growth of a most successful partnership between The Bahamas and JetBlue,” said Vincent Vanderpool-Wallace, Bahamas Minister of Tourism and Aviation. “We believe that success is owed largely to the wonderful match between JetBlue customers and Bahamas vacationers and we will continue to look for other such opportunities to enable travelers to enjoy the culture, cuisine and the world’s clearest waters of The Bahamas.”

“We are pleased to partner with JetBlue to offer residents of Westchester County, and nearby Connecticut, the convenience of daily non-stop service to Nassau Paradise Island, just in time for planning their holiday travel and escape from winter weather,” said Fred J. Lounsberry, CEO of the Nassau Paradise Island Promotion Board. “This new service will enable travelers to have breakfast at home and lunch on the beaches of Nassau Paradise Island in the Bahamas.”
