Michael Dunkley will participate in the inaugural festivities at New York’s JFK airport for JetBlue’s direct service to Bermuda on Thursday.

The Premier will be joined by Rob Land, JetBlue’s Senior Vice President of Government Affairs, and Kevin Dallas, Bermuda Tourism Authority CEO, to highlight the new service.

While in New York, Mr Dunkley will also be meeting with Kathryn Wylde, president and CEO of Partnership for New York, to discuss opportunities to strengthen the relationship between Bermuda and the organisation.

The events are part of the Premier’s trip to New York to take part in a special live media event at Bloomberg headquarters. The invitation-only event, which is being held on Wednesday, is being co-hosted by the Bermuda Business Development Agency and brings together senior US business leaders for in-depth panel discussions on issues important to the Bermuda market.

Former Mayor of New York, Michael Bloomberg, will open the three-hour event titled The Future of International Business Deals: How to Position for Long-Term Growth, and introduce the Premier.
