JetBlue Announces New Destination in Mexico

Low-cost airlines operator JetBlue Airways (NASDAQ: JBLU) recently revealed that it has officially launched services between New York’s John F. Kennedy International Airport (JFK) and Puerto Vallarta’s Gustavo Diaz Ordaz International Airport (PVR).

We look forward to continuing expanding our network and international presence in Latin America as part of our growth strategy.”
