Sale fares from Fort Lauderdale to Lima are available today through May 3 online from as low as $139 one-way for travel between Nov. 21 and Dec. 19.
"JetBlue's low fares and award-winning service have worked very well between Florida and Latin America," said Scott Laurence, JetBlue's vice president of network planning, in a statement. "With Lima, our first destination in Peru and the southernmost destination in the network, we are confident in our penetration of South America.
JetBlue's flight from Fort Lauderdale to Lima will depart at 5:40 p.m. for arrival at 11:30 p.m. Returning it will leave Lima at 12:30 a.m. and arrive in Fort Lauderdale at 6:19 a.m.
"When you look at Lima's wonderful offerings, including its rich culture, cuisine and great people, we believe both Florida and Lima residents will benefit greatly from the flight, whether visiting friends and relatives, vacationing or on business," noted Laurence.Copyright © 2015, Los Angeles Times
