JetBlue Announces Daily Flights to First European Destination
JetBlue, a Council member, has announced that
beginning in 2021 it will offer service to London from Boston’s Logan International
Airport and New York’s John F. Kennedy International Airport. This new daily
route marks the first time that JetBlue has served a European destination.
is currently the largest destination not served by JetBlue from both New York
and Boston. By adding this new service, JetBlue hopes to strengthen its
relevance in its two largest focus cities. The airline will launch the route by
converting 13 of its existing Airbus A321 aircraft orders to the A321LR. This
will enable a reimagined, transatlantic version of its premium Mint product, providing
more lie-flat seats than currently offered on JetBlue’s existing aircraft.
Geraghty, President and Chief Operating Officer of JetBlue, explained, “London
is the largest metro area JetBlue doesn’t yet serve from both Boston and New
York, and we could not be more thrilled to be changing that in the years ahead.
The fares being charged today by airlines on these routes, specifically on the
premium end, are enough to make you blush.”
NEC congratulates JetBlue on this significant development, and for both lowering
costs and improving service on the flights across the Atlantic.
