Destinations in Latin America and the Caribbean now make up almost one-third of JetBlue's route network. Medellin, Colombia's second largest city and a vibrant commercial and cultural center, will be JetBlue's 79th destination and its third destination in the South American country. JetBlue also offers nonstop service between Bogota and both Fort Lauderdale and Orlando, Florida as well as nonstop service between Cartagena and New York's John F. Kennedy International (JFK).  

"JetBlue's addition of nonstop service between Fort Lauderdale and Bogota earlier this year has performed so well that we're adding a second option for the Colombian community in South Florida," said John Checketts, director of route planning for JetBlue Airways. "We are thrilled to add our third Colombian city, Medellin. It is an amazing city, filled with tree-lined avenues and a interesting culture, and home to some of Colombia's most important businesses. Our schedule will accommodate our customers well, whether they are visiting friends and relatives, traveling for business or just going for a 'bandeja paisa' in the flower city."

"Congratulations to JetBlue for their continued growth in markets such as Medellin which serve the South Florida community so well. We look forward to helping make this new route to Columbia's second largest city successful," said Fort Lauderdale-Hollywood International Airport Director, Kent George.

"JetBlue's new route is another vote of confidence in Medellin and its internationalization process, which contribute to both our competitiveness and connection to the world. We welcome JetBlue to our home," said Medellin mayor Luis Fernando Suarez.

"We at Medellin airport welcome JetBlue's announcement that it is seeking to initiate non-stop service between Medellin and Ft. Lauderdale," said Airplan General Manager Sara Ramirez.
