Barbados Introduces New Non-Stop Flights From the U.S.

JetBlue and American Airlines are expanding service to Barbados. Addings the flights to meet increased travel demand, travelers will now have even more options to get to Barbados.

For late summer travel, American Airlines will be adding an additional daily flight out of Miami International Airport (MIA) from August 15 to September 5, 2023. Currently, American Airlines has twice daily service from MIA to Grantley Adams International Airport (BGI), therefore this additional flight will increase service from Miami to three times daily.

Similarly, U.S. travelers can expect to see daily flights via American Airlines from Charlotte Douglas International Airport (CLT) resume from December 21, just in time for the holidays. This is a significant increase from the current weekly service from CLT to BGI, and will continue until April 3, with the exception of Tuesdays and Wednesdays from January 8 to March 4.

JetBlue has also extended its second daily flight from New York's John F. Kennedy International Airport (JFK), through September and October. The popular redeye flight was previously slated to end at the beginning of September but will now continue through to October.

“We’re extremely excited to expand the airlift servicing our U.S. market for 2023 and going into 2024,” said Eusi Skeete, U.S. director, Barbados Tourism Marketing Inc. (BTMI). “We understand that demand for the destination is very high and we’ve been working closely with our longstanding airline partners to meet this demand.”

“We’ve been intentional in our efforts to stimulate demand for the destination through creative marketing initiatives, an amplified presence in key focus cities and leveraging our strategic partnerships which is proving to be a winning formula. This is truly a win for Barbados, our partners, and of course, travelers,” added Skeete.

He continued: “We are continuously identifying growth opportunities to expand airlift across the U.S. market and are quite optimistic for the prospect of increased service, particularly as demand for travel to Barbados remains high. We will continue to work closely with our airline partners to create even more travel opportunities as we expand across the U.S.”
