Delta Launches First Non-Stop Flight Between JFK and Cabo...Just for a Few Months
The infamous "drinking dragon" arch of Cabo San Lucas
Given the geographic locations and flight paths, it makes total sense that spring breakers from the east coast party in Cancun and those in the west shake their tailfeathers in Cabo. The same goes for normal people who want to sip margaritas and live the resort life.
But Delta is giving New Yorkers a way to do something different this year with a nonstop flight between JFK and Cabo starting in December, and it will be the only direct flight between the two cities. The interesting caveat here is that the flight will be seasonal and operate only on Saturdays and only from December 20 through June 27, 2015. Sounds like Delta 1) is going to test out the route and 2) rightfully believes that there isn't enough demand to fill a weekly flight during the hot summer months.
Two other new nonstop routes to Cabo will fly from San Diego and Seattle. From San Diego, the flight will go seven days a week and start December 20th. The Seattle flight will run four times per week from December 20th to January 10th. After that, it will only operate on Saturdays.
Looks like those traveling from New York and Seattle will have to spend a full week in Cabo if they want to take nonstop flights both directions. What a pity!
