JetBlue to Fly to Cartagena From JFK

JetBlue Airways plans to add another Latin American gem to its network: Cartagena, the vibrant city on Colombia's Caribbean coast.

Starting on November 2, subject to receipt of government approval, clients will be able to fly to and from New York's John F. Kennedy (JFK) International Airport three times per week - the only nonstop 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 a daily Fort Lauderdale-to-Bogota service to complement its existing daily Orlando to Bogota route. The award-winning airline has offered service to Colombia since 2009.

Flights leave JFK at 8:25 a.m. on Tuesdays, Fridays and Saturdays and arrive in Cartagena at 1:10 p.m. Departing flights leave Cartagena at 2:05 p.m. and arrive back in New York City by 7:30 p.m.
