JetBlue Airways at the end of October expanded its destination offerings at Fort Lauderdale-Hollywood International Airport (FLL) with the addition of daily service to Cartagena, Colombia’s Rafael Nuñez International Airport, as part of the carrier’s plans to offer 100 daily flights out of Fort Lauderdale.. Earlier in 2014, JetBlue added flights to Montego Bay, Jamaica; Port of Spain, Trinidad & Tobago; and Punta Cana, Dominican Republic. JetBlue currently offers up to 75 daily flights to 33 destinations from Fort Lauderdale-Hollywood.
“We are pleased to offer customers even more travel choices from Fort Lauderdale-Hollywood. JetBlue is already the largest airline here, and we are continuously expanding our presence in South Florida to meet the growing demand in this region. With the new runway now in operation, we will be able to offer 100 daily flights in just a few years, which will allow us to add a number of new and exciting destinations in the U.S., Caribbean and Latin America,” said Scott Laurence, Senior Vice President, Airline Planning.
The route currently runs daily leaving Fort Lauderdale at noon and arriving at 2pm, then leaving Cartagena at 2:45pm and arriving back in Fort Lauderdale at 6:48. Schedules are subject to change at any time.
