JetBlue Capacity Up Between Florida and Mexico City. The carrier announced new flight schedules from Fort Lauderdale and Orlando, Florida, to Mexico City (MEX), following news from a cross-border joint venture between Delta Air Lines and Aeromexico.

Starting September 6, JetBlue will increase the Airbus A320 service to 4 times a day between Mexico City and the United States, two on the Fort Lauderdale route and two on the Orlando routes.

In 2015, JetBlue launched one flight per day services from Florida to Mexico City. However, earlier this year, JetBlue received new flight times and authority to operate additional service from the US Department of Transportation when the agency required other airlines to undo slots at MEX to improve competition in the City from Mexico.

"Although the airline quickly became a favorite among Mexico City. Previous flight times could not meet the needs of all customers and did not line up well with part of the connecting traffic," JetBlue said in an official statement.
