Positioned along the Caribbean coast in the Riviera Maya, Tulum is renowned for its tranquil beaches, environmentally conscious lifestyle, and rich Mayan history. This addition expands JetBlue’s presence in Mexico, where it currently operates flights to Cancun, Puerto Vallarta, and Los Cabos.
David Jehn, Vice President of Network Planning and Airline Partnerships at JetBlue, remarked, “Tulum, with its picturesque beaches and vibrant cultural heritage, has become a sought-after destination by seamlessly blending ancient and modern elements in a country that consistently excels in world-class hospitality. With the new international airport in Tulum, we can now provide our customers with access to this desirable location, arriving and departing from a state-of-the-art, modern, and convenient airport facility, all while upholding JetBlue’s reputation for exceptional service and affordable fares.”
Situated to the southwest of Playa del Carmen and Cancun, Tulum has emerged as a premier destination for those seeking a getaway enriched with health-centric resorts and retreats, captivating archaeological ruins, and natural wonders such as cenotes (natural sinkholes).
Whether indulging in hikes to ancient Mayan temples, embarking on guided explorations through lush jungles, or simply enjoying a day of relaxation on the beach, Tulum serves as a gateway for travelers in search of adventure, tranquility, and immersive cultural experiences.

In recent years, JetBlue further broadened its presence with flights to Puerto Vallarta and Los Cabos from New York’s JFK Airport and Los Angeles International Airport (LAX), offering connections throughout JetBlue’s extensive network.
