JetBlue plans to make the Guadeloupe its latest destination in the Caribbean.

The carrier plans to add flights to the French Caribbean island beginning in February 2020. Pending regulatory approval, JetBlue will offer service from its hub at New York JFK to Guadeloupe’s Pointe-à-Pitre International Airport (PTP).

JetBlue did not reveal a specific start date for the route, saying only that it expects seats to go on sale “in the coming weeks.”

The route continues JetBlue’s expansion into the Caribbean, which has provided a lucrative niche for the New York-based airline.

“We continue to build our New York focus city strategy and by adding another unique destination we reinforce our position in the Caribbean, where JetBlue continues to serve more nonstop destinations from JFK than any other carrier,” Andrea Lusso, JetBlue’s director of route planning, said in a Thursday statement.

JetBlue noted it will “be the only airline to operate flights between the northeastern U.S. and Guadeloupe.”

Norwegian Air had flown nonstop between New York JFK and Guadeloupe as recently as March. But the European low-cost giant announced in February that it would drop the route, opting not to resume its seasonal service for the upcoming winter season.
