JetBlue launches nonstop route from New York JFK to Puerto Vallarta
JetBlue has launched service between New York JFK International Airport and Puerto Vallarta’s Gustavo Diaz Ordaz International Airport. The route will be operated four times weekly, with a mix of A321neo and A320 aircraft.
Enabled by JetBlue’s Northeast Alliance (NEA), Puerto Vallarta is JetBlue’s third destination in Mexico and further expands the airline’s significant presence across Latin America and the Caribbean, while diversifying and advancing its New York focus city strategy.
JetBlue continues to grow beyond the U.S. with over 30 international destinations in more than two dozen countries. JetBlue also becomes the only airline to serve Puerto Vallarta with nonstop service from New York-JFK and now offers more weekly flights between greater New York City and the Mexican Pacific coast destination than any other airline.
“As demand for travel continues to increase, we are excited to introduce the new route to Puerto Vallarta, offering our Northeast customers a new destination in Mexico,” said Andrea Lusso, Vice President Network Planning, JetBlue. “We look forward to continuing expanding our network and international presence in Latin America as part of our growth strategy.”
Briana Gisel Banda Renteria, Head of Public Relations and Project Management, Puerto Vallarta International Airport, commented: “For Grupo Aeropuertuario del Pacifico (GAP) welcoming JetBlue for the first time in Puerto Vallarta is a celebration and a sign that the best is yet to come, by demonstrating passengers feel confident travelling and the airport provides the highest safety measures and investment in its history to offer customers the best travel experience.”
