New York City-based JetBlue Airways recently announced that it will begin to operate regular flights between the John F. Kennedy International Airport in New York (JFK) and the Gustavo Diaz Ordaz International Airport in Puerto Vallarta (PVR) during the first quarter of 2022.
The frequency, schedules, characteristics of the aircraft and commercialization of the New York-Puerto Vallarta flight with JetBlue will be announced in the coming months, but it has been confirmed that this air link will be initiated between January and February 2022.
JetBlue’s commitment to this expansion is to continue offering very convenient rates and excellent service to more travelers, now with seven new destinations connected to New York and Boston.
“We are very happy to have been selected as a connection city with JetBlue for the year 2022. Puerto Vallarta offers 360 days of sunshine a year, with beautiful beaches, activities in the sea and mountains, and incredible experiences that make it an excellent option for all types of travelers looking for an extraordinary and accessible tropical destination,” said Luis Villasenor, acting director of the Puerto Vallarta Tourism Promotion and Advertising Trust.
“The New York metropolitan area, with more than 27 million inhabitants,” Villasenor added, “is an important tourist market. JetBlue’s decision to launch a direct flight to Vallarta – Nayarit recognizes the growing attraction the Banderas Bay area generates among residents of this important region of the United States. It also gives us an opportunity to welcome frequent travelers, and, of course, those who have a visit to this popular Mexican beach vacation destination on their to-do list.”
He went on to say that “New York and its metropolitan area is home to many people with high purchasing power and the ability to take several trips throughout the year, especially in the winter, which may represent a lucrative market for this corner of the Mexican Pacific.”
The new flight will reinforce the 2022 winter period, which is expected to bring a rebound in tourist activity, as anti-Covid vaccination has advanced in the United States and Mexico.
