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.

London 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.

Joanna 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.”

The NEC congratulates JetBlue on this significant development, and for both lowering costs and improving service on the flights across the Atlantic.
