JetBlue has added a hot new destination in Mexico to its network. The inaugural flight from New York (JFK) touched down in Mexico’s popular West Coast vacation destination Puerto Vallarta (PVR) on Saturday, February 19, 2022.
“As demand for travel continues to increase, we are excited to introduce the new route to Puerto Vallarta, offering our Northeast consumers a new destination in Mexico,” said Andrea Lussi, Vice President of Network Planning at JetBlue.
If the prospect of more nonstop services to Mexico wasn’t exciting enough, the new route is likely to be just one of many as JetBlue expands its Latin American route network.
“We look forward to continuing expanding our network and international presence in Latin America as part of our growth strategy,” said Lussi.
Let’s take a look at the details of JetBlue’s new route to the sunshine.
New York (JFK) to Puerto Vallarta (PVR)
Puerto Vallarta (PVR) joins Cancún (CUN) and San José del Cabo (SJD) as JetBlue’s third nonstop route from New York (JFK) to Mexico.
For now, JFK — JetBlue’s birthplace and largest hub — will be the only airport in its network to welcome nonstop service to Puerto Vallarta.
Passengers will be able to fly on Mondays, Wednesdays, Saturdays, and Sundays with the following schedule:
- Depart New York (JFK) 9 a.m. — Arrive Puerto Vallarta (PVR) 2:10 p.m.
- Depart Puerto Vallarta (PVR) 3:26 p.m. — Arrive New York (JFK) 9:31 p.m.
The route will be operated by either one of the airline’s Airbus A321neo or A320 aircraft.
Unfortunately, neither of the aircraft that operate the new route will feature the airline’s famous JetBlue Mint business class product. This is likely because the airline reserves these aircraft for more premium routes where you’d expect more guests traveling for business rather than leisure.
Instead, as the jets only feature economy seats, guests will be able to choose from 3 fares: Blue Basic, Blue, or Blue Extra.
You can also redeem TrueBlue points for your trip starting from just 7,500 TrueBlue points one-way.

Not only does JetBlue’s new route to Mexico bring new travel opportunities for JetBlue frequent flyers and guests in the New York area, but it’s also a sign that aviation is finally making the comeback we’ve been waiting for after almost 2 years.
