JetBlue Applauds Landmark U.S. – Mexico Aviation Treaty

Published on : Saturday, December 19, 2015

jetblue-logo-berriesJetBlue Airways today applauded the United States Department of Transportation on its announcement of a liberalized aviation treaty with the government of Mexico.

 

The agreement, signed today in Washington, lifts longstanding restrictions on the number of carriers allowed to operate on any given route between the U.S. and Mexico, opening the door for carriers to add unlimited new transborder air service effective January 1, 2016.

 

“On behalf of JetBlue’s 18,000 Crewmembers, I applaud the U.S. Government for its diligence in securing a forward-thinking aviation treaty with Mexico,” said Robin Hayes, JetBlue president and CEO. “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 DOT to remove the remaining barriers to entry that smaller carriers like JetBlue continue to face when expanding.”

 

JetBlue, which operates an extensive network across Latin America and the Caribbean, has served Mexico since 2006. Today the airline operates low-fare service to Cancún and Mexico City from several U.S. gateways including Boston; Fort Lauderdale-Hollywood, Fla.; New York-JFK; and Orlando, Fla.
