FORT LAUDERDALE, Fla., Sept. 16, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- JetBlue Airways (Nasdaq: JBLU), today announces the intent to begin service to Port of Spain, Trinidad and Tobago (POS) with once daily non-stop flights from Fort Lauderdale/Hollywood International Airport (FLL).

This is in keeping with governments* vision to grow the tourism sector,** said The Honorable Chandresh Sharma, minister of tourism, Trinidad and Tobago. **The United States has traditionally been and continues to be one of our major trading partners. An efficient, reliable and affordable airlift is of critical importance in further capitalizing on the potential from the U.S. We look forward to a relationship that can engender new opportunities not just for Trinidad and Tobago, but also for the wider Caribbean region.**
