JetBlue Applies for Flights to Bogota, Colombia

There’s an interesting fight brewing down in Fort Lauderdale between Spirit and JetBlue.  Spirit has built up a hub for flights to Latin America and the Caribbean from the airport, a move that has caused American to lower fares from its Miami hub to similar destinations.  Now, JetBlue is applying for the right to fly from FLL to Bogota, Colombia, a move that is a significant departure from its leisure-focused cities in the Caribbean, and a choice that will be certain to lead to a swift response from Spirit (which has also applied for frequencies on the route).  It’s all good news for travelers in the region, who will see lower fares throughout Latin America.
