JetBlue Airways said it plans to add Cartagena, the city on Colombia's Caribbean coast and the airline’s second city in the country. Starting on Nov. 2, 2012, subject to government approval, travelers will be able to fly to and from New York's John F. Kennedy 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-Hollywood to Bogota service to complement its existing daily Orlando to Bogota route. The airline has offered service to Colombia since 2009.
JetBlue's flights between New York and Cartagena will be operated with its comfortable Airbus A320 fleet featuring assigned seating; a first-checked bag free; complimentary and unlimited name brand snacks and drinks; leather seats; and more legroom.
