In a statement from the airline, Haiti’s consul general in New York said JetBlue’s service will help the Caribbean country’s economy and give Haitian-Americans more opportunities to visit their homeland.

 

The airline says destinations in Latin America and the Caribbean make up nearly a third of its routes. It flies to more than 10 countries, including the Dominican Republic, Aruba, Barbados and the Bahamas.
