MIAMI — JetBlue Airways Corp. is extending its service in the Caribbean to Haiti.

 

The airline announced Thursday that it plans to offer daily nonstop flights to Port-au-Prince, Haiti, from New York City’s John F. Kennedy International Airport and South Florida’s Fort Lauderdale-Hollywood International Airport.

 

The flights are scheduled to begin Dec. 5.

 

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.
