JetBlue Airways is starting an exciting route between New York (JFK) and Tulum in Mexico, and tickets are now on sale!

Let’s take a look at the new route.

JetBlue Becomes Latest Airline to Fly to Tulum

JetBlue will begin service between John F. Kennedy International Airport (JFK) and Felipe Carrillo Puerto Tulum International Airport (TQO) on June 13, 2024. JetBlue will fly the Airbus A320 aircraft on the route.

This marks JetBlue’s fourth Mexico route — the airline also flies from the U.S. to Cancun (CUN), Puerto Vallarta (PVR), and Los Cabos (SJD).

JetBlue is the latest airline to begin service to Tulum, which will welcome flights beginning next spring. American AirlinesDelta Air LinesSpirit Airlines, and United Airlines have all recently announced flights to the popular travel destination. Tulum is located south of Playa del Carmen and Cancun and, in recent years, has seen an explosion in tourism.

“With the new international airport in Tulum, we are able to bring our customers where they want to go, arriving and departing in a brand new, modern, and convenient airport facility while offering the great service and low fares JetBlue is known for,” said David Jehn, vice president, network planning and airline partnerships, JetBlue. 

Bottom Line:

This route will be popular with travelers seeking to skip Cancun and visit Tulum only. Previously, travelers wishing to visit Tulum had to drive 2 hours or more depending on traffic from the Cancun Airport. With the opening of the Tulum International Airport in 2024, travel time to the region will be significantly cut.

Booking JetBlue Flights to Tulum

The JFK to TQO route won’t begin until June 13, 2024; however, you can book flights now.

JFK to TQO1x Daily28797:55 a.m. to 11:15 a.m.

JetBlue is celebrating the launch by offering $149 one-way fares through December 15, 2023, when booking directly through the airline. You must travel between June 17, 2024, and October 30, 2024 (for Monday, Tuesday, and Wednesday travel). If booking in cash, don’t forget to read our guide on the best credit cards for travel.

You can also find one-way tickets starting at just 7,800 JetBlue TrueBlue points. There are many options for earning JetBlue points, such as using a co-branded credit card, transferring points from American Express, Chase, or Citi, or enrolling in TrueBlue Dining.

Final Thoughts

Like other U.S. carriers, JetBlue is jumping head-first into the Tulum market with nonstop flights to the region. The airline is also offering promo fares starting at just $149 each way, which makes booking a ticket a no-brainer if you want to visit Tulum next year.
