On Saturday, Nov. 7, JetBlue (NASDAQ: JBLU) launched new, non-stop service between New York’s John F. Kennedy International Airport (JFK) and Cyril E. King Airport on St. Thomas, U.S. Virgin Islands. Scheduled to operate as a Saturday only service during November, this new route is part of JetBlue’s strategy to serve customers in markets where leisure and VFR (visiting friends and relatives) travel is showing some signs of strength.
