A few days after announcing plans for a new route between Fort Lauderdale and Quito, Ecuador, JetBlue’s unveiling service to a new destination in Mexico. Starting on October 1, 2015, the airline will offer daily flights between Mexico City’s Benito Juarez International Airport and two JetBlue hubs in Florida: Fort Lauderdale-Hollywood (FLL) and Orlando (MCO). Both flights will operate on JetBlue’s A320 aircraft.
While the routes won’t launch for several months, you can now book one-way travel for $99. You’ll have to do it quickly, though; the introductory fare is only valid for tickets purchased today and tomorrow (May 19, 2015).
JetBlue currently operates flights to Cancun, making Mexico City its second destination in Mexico. Today’s announcement shows just how serious — and speedy — the airline is about expanding its presence in the Latin American market.
