JetBlue Airways plans to launch three-times-weekly service between New York JFK and Cartagena on Colombia’s Caribbean coast on November 2, subject to receipt of government approval.
According to JetBlue Airways, its planned flights to Cartagena from New York JFK will represent the only non-stop 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 daily service from Fort Lauderdale Hollywood International Airport to Bogota, to complement its existing daily Orlando-Bogota flight. The airline has operated to Colombia since 2009.
“Cartagena is a place we’ve long had our eye on,” says 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.”
JetBlue’s schedule between New York and Cartagena will see its daily flight leave New York JFK (JFK) at 8:25 a.m. each Tuesday, Friday and Sunday and land at Cartagena’s Rafael Núñez International Airport (CTG) at 1:10 p.m. local time.
In the other direction, the JetBlue Airways flight will depart CTG at 2:05 p.m. and arrive back at JFK at 7:30 p.m. local time.
JetBlue will operate its flights between New York and Cartagena with Airbus A320 jets.
New York-based JetBlue serves 71 cities with 800 daily flights. For information call +1 800-538-2583 (TTY/TDD +1 800-336-5530) from the USA, 01800-9-156761 from Colombia landlines, or visit www.jetblue.com.
