The city that never sleeps, New York, can often get overwhelming with its relentless pace. Need an escape? Consider a direct flight to the calm oasis of Belize.
JetBlue and BTB Collaboration: Connecting NYC to Tropical Belize
JetBlue Airlines, widely regarded as New York’s Hometown Airline®, has collaborated with the Belize Tourism Board (BTB) to open a gateway from the heart of the Big Apple to this tropical paradise. This novel route promises to seamlessly connect the energetic pulse of John F. Kennedy International Airport (JFK) with Belize’s serene Phillip S.W. Goldson Airport.
Starting December 6, 2023, the airline will launch year-round service, operating every Monday, Wednesday, and Saturday. This new route will position New York as the 11th U.S. city to provide nonstop access to the splendors of Belize.
Belize’s Minister of Tourism and Diaspora Relations, Anthony Mahler, expressed his enthusiasm about this initiative, which marks a significant stride in Belize’s mission to attract more U.S. visitors. “We’re thrilled about the new partnership with JetBlue, and eagerly await welcoming their inaugural flight to Belize in December,” said Mahler. This direct service from JFK, a major international hub, presents a golden opportunity to a large population of travelers.
Echoing this sentiment, David Jehn, JetBlue’s Vice President of Network Planning and Partnerships, said, “Our commitment to exceptional travel experiences is unwavering. The expansion into Belize embodies our dedication to connecting customers with popular and distinctive destinations.”
Belize: An Uptick in American Visitors and a Cornucopia of Wonders

Belize offers a cornucopia of natural wonders and cultural heritage. From the Northern and Western Hemispheres’ largest Barrier Reef to the complex Maya caves, Belize’s alluring beauty captivates. It’s the sole English-speaking nation in the region, with the wide acceptance of the U.S. dollar, offering American tourists remarkable convenience.
