JetBlue Airways said last week that it will be offering more flights to Mexico in the wake of a recent treaty between the U.S. and Mexico that will allow air carriers to have unlimited flights between the neighboring countries beginning Jan. 1.
JetBlue said new aviation treaty will allow the low-cost carrier to expand its service to Mexico, where it has been offering flights to Mexico City and Cancun
"On behalf of JetBlue's 18,000 crew members, I applaud the U.S. government for its diligence in securing a forward-thinking aviation treaty with Mexico," JetBlue President and CEO Robin Hayes said. "Across the globe, the U.S.-led liberalization of the skies has proven to increase travel options for consumers, grow jobs and strengthen economies. JetBlue is delighted with this development which will put our airline a step closer to being able to increase service to Mexico. We look forward to working with (the U.S. Department of Transportation) to remove the remaining barriers to entry that smaller carriers like JetBlue continue to face when expanding."
The flight agreement will allow for unlimited flights between the two countries and improved pricing and intermodal rights.
