JetBlue expanded its seasonal weekly Saturday service from Newark to Barbados to year-round operations.

Barbados has continued to see an increase in U.S. arrival numbers for the fourth consecutive year, with 2018 producing a record 204,830 visitors, an increase of 8.4% from 2017.

"Increased airlift continues to be core to Barbados Tourism Marketing Inc.'s strategic direction of achieving improved accessibility for U.S. visitors to Barbados," said Petra Roach, the organization's U.S. director.
