JetBlue Airways plans to add another Caribbean gem to its network: Cartagena, the vibrant city on Colombia’s Caribbean coast. Starting on November 2, 2012, subject to receipt of government approval, travelers will be able to fly to and from New York’s John F. Kennedy International Airport three times per week – the only nonstop service between New York and Cartagena.
Cartagena will be JetBlue’s second destination in Colombia and its third route to the country. Earlier this summer, JetBlue added a daily Fort Lauderdale-Hollywood to Bogota service to complement its existing daily Orlando to Bogota route. The award-winning airline has offered service to Colombia since 2009.
“Cartagena is a place we’ve long had our eye on,” said John Checketts, director of route planning for JetBlue Airways. “It’s one of the most amazing destinations in the Caribbean, a UNESCO World Heritage Site with unparalleled beauty, and a perfect combination of history, beaches, and culture.”
