JetBlue launched its second route to Colombia’s capital city Monday with daily nonstop flights between Bogota and Fort Lauderdale.
“The growing Colombian community in South Florida has very strong ties to their community and we’re pleased to offer them this comfortable and convenient service home,” said John Checketts, director of route planning for JetBlue Airways.
JetBlue has already offered daily service between Bogota and Orlando for just over three years.
“We celebrate this second route from JetBlue to our country, connecting a second Florida destination with Bogota, which will surely increment passenger traffic between the United States and Colombia,” said Oscar Rueda Garcia, Colombia’s Vice-Minister of Tourism.
“[It arrives] just in time to coincide with the Free Trade Agreement between both countries,” he added, referring to the trade agreement between the two countries set to go into effect May 15.
Daily nonstop flights departing from Bogota at 11:35AM will arrive in Fort Lauderdale at 4:23PM and flights leaving from Fort Lauderdale at 8AM will arrive in Bogota at 10:40AM.
The airline is currently offering a special $99 one-way fare to promote the new route.
