The new flights between New York JFK and Tulum (TQO) with JetBlue began on June 13.

Furthermore, the airline will be operating these flights on a daily basis, and is also the third destination in Mexico for the carrier after:

  • Cancun
  • Los Cabos

The scheduling for the flights is as follows:

  • B62879 – DEP JFK 0800 ARR TQO 1115
  • B62880 – DEP TQO 1243 ARR JFK 1749

It is understood that the Airbus A320s in their fleet will service this route.

Such a gradual expansion has been reflective of the strong relationship JetBlue has had out of Cancun and Los Cabos.

The new Tulum flights are as a result of significant tourism demand into the region.

Furthermore, it is also part of the airline’s overall strategy to serve 40 international destinations by the end of this year.

The highlights of these international destinations has been it’s foray into the Transatlantic market.

For the airline, the most recent inauguration on the transatlantic scene has been into Edinburgh.

Closer to home, the carrier has recently announced that they will be opening up a crew base in San Juan.

Finally, just in the last week, JetBlue has revealed the launch of new flights from Long Island down to Orlando, Fort Lauderdale and Palm Beach.

So it is clear in this regard that the airline is pushing the boundaries of expansion in every different market they serve.
