”As we think about JetBlue's leadership in the Caribbean and Latin America, Mexico City is a destination that we have been very eager to add to our network," said Dave Clark, JetBlue’s vice president of network planning, said in a release. “[W]e are proud to continue enhancing our already growing presence in Florida."

The airline said service to Mexico City will be offered in the evenings. Flights back to the U.S. will depart Mexico City in the early mornings. Flight time is a little over 3 hours, according to information on JetBlue's website. 

Last week, JetBlue announced plans to offer flights from Fort Lauderdale to Quito, Ecuador, in 2016. Looks like Azul isn’t the only airlines to spot the potential our city has to offer.
