JetBlue today announced it has officially launched service between New York’s John F. Kennedy International Airport (JFK) and Tulum’s Felipe Carrillo Puerto Tulum International Airport (TQO).

Tulum service will operate daily, making this JetBlue’s third destination in Mexico, where it also serves Cancun and Los Cabos.

David Jehn, JetBlue’s vice president of network planning and airline partnerships said: “As the only airline with direct service from New York’s JFK to Tulum, we are thrilled to offer our customers our award-winning service, low fares, and another option when traveling to the Mexican Caribbean.

“JetBlue began service to Mexico more than 17 years ago with flights from New York to Cancun and we’re proud to expand our footprint in Mexico.”

Andrés Martínez Reynoso, Director of the Quintana Roo Tourism Board said: “JetBlue has been an invaluable partner in connecting travellers from across the United States to the Mexican Caribbean with direct flights to Cancun.

“We are excited to see this partnership continue to flourish with JetBlue’s new daily nonstop service from New York JFK to Tulum.”

“Tulum, with its serene beaches, eco-conscious living, and rich Mayan history, will now be more accessible to travellers, in addition to points of interest further south along the Grand Costa Maya.

“We look forward to welcoming New Yorkers, and those transiting through JFK, to this new era in the Mexican Caribbean.”

Tulum, located southwest of Playa del Carmen and Cancun, has become a top choice for those seeking an escape with health-centric resorts and retreats, captivating archaeological ruins, and natural sinkholes.
