JetBlue Launches First-Ever Flights to Guatemala

By: Caribbean Journal Staff - April 16, 2021

JetBlue Airways has kicked off its first-ever service to Guatemala City, Caribbean Journal has learned. 

The carrier is now operating daily service between New York’s John F. Kennedy International Airport and Guatemala’s La Aurora International Airport. 

It’s the only daily service between New York and Guatemala. 

“Growing JetBlue’s presence in Latin America and the Caribbean is key to our continued success internationally and Guatemala City service will play an important role in maintaining our leadership role in the region,” said Andrea Lusso, vice president network planning, JetBlue. “It also gives us an opportunity to serve a variety of travelers and grow our customer bases in Central America and the Northeast.”

JetBlue says the service appeals to customers visiting family and friends and a mix of business and leisure travelers. 

“Guatemala welcomed with great joy the first flight of the airline, JetBlue, who strategically opted for our country to start the new daily route between New York City’s John F. Kennedy International Airport and Guatemala City’s La Aurora International Airport,” said Pedro Brolo, Chancellor of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of Guatemala. “As part of the coordinated actions for the revival of tourism promoted by Inguat, DGAC and Minex through the Network of Commercial Advisors, we are proud to cordially welcome JetBlue. We thank them for trusting our country, which has countless competitive and comparative advantages, which will be the focus of attention of foreign visitors and Guatemalan migrant families who will be able to enjoy the beauty and wealth of tourism and business in their country.”

JetBlue is operating the flights on Airbus A320 and 321neo aircraft.
