JetBlue has launched its first-ever flights to Los Cabos, the increasingly hot destination on the Pacific coast of Mexico.
JetBlue has begun new service to Los Cabos from both Los Angeles and New York’s John F. Kennedy International Airport, with both routes kicking off this week.
“With demand for travel the strongest it’s been in more than a year, our new nonstop flights between the East and West Coasts and Los Cabos are perfectly timed for customers looking for a much-needed escape this summer,” said Andrea Lusso, vice president network planning, JetBlue. “At the same time, our newest international destination grows our presence in Latin America and helps further our network strategies in the Northeast and Southern California.”
It’s another boost for Los Cabos, which draws nearly 80 percent of its international tourism from Americans.
And it’s part of a continued expansion for JetBlue amid the pandemic; the carrier plans to add another 40 new routes in the coming months.
“We are delighted for the beginning of these two new routes that give way to greater connectivity from the United States to Los Cabos. International tourism is our main strategic market so we are sure that these new routes with JetBlue will be a success,” said Fernando Ojeda Aguilar, Secretary of Tourism, Economy and Sustainability of Baja California Sur. “Tourists who visit the destination will live unforgettable experiences with the highest safety and hygiene protocols.”
JetBlue is operating both routes on Airbus A320 aircraft.
Both routes operate daily.
