June 21. JetBlue has officially made its debut at San José del Cabo’s Los Cabos International Airport (SJD). The first round-trip flights between the popular Mexican destination and Los Angeles International Airport (LAX) landed on June 17, and the first flight roundtrip flights between New York’s John F. Kennedy International Airport (JFK) and Los Cabos landed back in the Northeast on June 18. JetBlue’s Los Cabos service from the East and West Coasts operates daily.
“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 for 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.”
JetBlue says it made the decision to fly to Los Cabos from New York and Los Angeles to support its long-term network strategy and grow its focus cities so it can better compete with legacy and ultra-low-cost carriers. With demand for travel returning, JetBlue-operated flights is expected to increase by 3 percent over 2019 in October and includes some 40 new routes set to launch in the coming months.
