JetBlue has announced it’ll expand its operations to Mexico by adding service to Tulum starting in 2024.
Behind The New JetBlue Service Coming
From June 13, 2024, JetBlue will begin service to Felipe Carrillo Puerto Tulum International Airport (TQO) from New York’s John F. Kennedy International Airport (JFK).
The daily nonstop flight will see JetBlue offer flights to a popular location known for its serene beaches. As a result, it presents itself as the perfect getaway for those in the Eastern part of the United States.
JetBlue already serves Los Cabos, Cancun and Puerto Vallarta. As a result, Tulum will become the fourth location the carrier will serve.
Thanks to the addition of this service, JetBlue will be the only airline offering nonstop service to Tulum from New York JFK.
JB2879 will depart New York JFK at 0755 and arrive at 1115. Return service from Tulum will depart at 1245, arriving at 1755 back into New York JFK as JB2880.
The carrier also says it’ll utilise the Airbus A320 for this service with the fast, free unlimited broadband Fly-Fi, complimentary snacks and drinks, seatback entertainment and JetBlue’s award-winning service.
With picturesque beaches and vibrant cultural heritage, Tulum has proven to be a destination in demand by seamlessly blending ancient and modern, in a country that continues to lead with world-class hospitality. With the new international airport in Tulum, we are able to bring our customers where they want to go, arriving and departing in a brand new, modern, and convenient airport facility while offering the great service and low fares JetBlue is known for.David Jehn, vice president, network planning and airline partnerships, JetBlue.
