JetBlue launching direct service from New York to St. Lucia

The Canadian Press: "NEW YORK — JetBlue will launch direct service to St. Lucia from New York later this fall.

The flights will depart from John F. Kennedy Airport three times a week, Sundays, Mondays and Thursdays, beginning Oct. 26. Roundtrip fare is as low as US$300.

The planes will land at St. Lucia's Hewanorra Airport.

The island is known for a combination of beaches, mountains and lush green forests. In the town of Soufriere, you can tour a volcanic crater where you'll find steam vents and pools of bubbling mud and coloured minerals.

The island's dry season is between December and May."
