A good deal to fly from San Francisco to Lima, Peru on Jetblue for $483 (via Fort Lauderdale, Florida) in May 2017.

This may make sense for an exotic Memorial Day Weekend trip in late May!

Came across this as I was casually looking at flights to South America (I didn’t even know that JetBlue flies to Lima, Peru!).

Layovers are short (1.25 hour outbound and 3 hour inbound). Jetblue has wider seats than normal economy (34” pitch as opposed to 31”).

The $483 price is quite limited in May, but I also see some prices for $519 on other travel dates in May and June 2017. 

These prices may last for a week but won’t last for long.

You can search for dates on Google Flights, which should lead you to Jetblue.com


Lima is about 1 hour flight away from Cuzco, the starting point for going to Machu Picchu.

Sample travel dates: May 22 — Jun 13

Would you take advantage of this deal to Lima?
