Shadow Transport Minister, Susan Jackson, responds to JetBlue announcement

Yet again, Bermuda’s tourism has received a devastating blow. Losing the Jet Blue daily service from New York will cause a major inconvenience to many, especially the sick, the elderly, students, and businessmen and women who rely on the service to travel to their destinations both in America and internationally.

The IB sector is keeping our island afloat and doesn’t need further disruptions.

Both locals and visitors alike should be deeply concerned about the loss of air travel, coupled with the expensive and ineffective Travel Authorisation Form which has outlived its purpose.

Air fares to and from Bermuda are very expensive and the Government must work harder to keep regular flights from our gateway cities.

Regular travel in and out of Bermuda is our highest priority. We cannot afford any further loss.
