When it comes to new route news it seems that JetBlue just can’t stop, and this week is no exception. This week they’re adding destination number three to and from Colombia, as they’re planning to head in and out of Medellín. The plan is to fly between Fort Lauderdale-Hollywood International Airport and José María Córdova International Airport beginning as soon as June 20, 2013. It sounds like JetBlue is still finishing up some paperwork, so it’ll be January before these flights are up for sale. Once things get going the options will run daily.
· American Airlines:
We’ve seen everything like new fares, new airplanes, and new apps from American Airlines, but this week they’re sticking with just new routes. Looks like they’re planning to add even more options down to South America, as American Airlines is getting ready to start non-stop service between Dallas-Ft. Worth and Bogota, Colombia. American isn’t done there either, as late next year they’ll also try to connect Curitiba and Porto Alegre—those spots are in Brazil—with Miami. That’ll bring their total options to and from Brazil up to nine, so they’ve got you more than covered if that’s where you’re headed.

We just finished talking about Brazil, but there’s one more new route tidbit that we need to mention. This time it's US Airways heading to and from Brazil, as the carrier is planning to link Charlotte with São Paulo beginning on May 5. Obviously things could change if US Airways and American Airlines ever end up getting together, but for now it looks like all systems are go for launch. Boeing 767s will do the flying between the two cities—and countries—and it looks like tickets have already been loaded into the system for your booking pleasure.
