JetBlue Adds New Long-Haul Routes
The airline is expanding its transatlantic footprint with both seasonal and year-round flights.
JetBlue is expanding its network portfolio in Europe, adding new destinations from both Boston and New York-JFK. The New York-based airline kicked off its European service in 2021 with flights to London, before eventually adding Paris and Amsterdam.
In a press release Wednesday morning, the airline announced its plans to add Dublin and Edinburgh to its network, starting in 2024. JetBlue is also growing its current flights to Paris.
New Service to Dublin
JetBlue will start new seasonal service to Dublin from its Boston and JFK hubs. According to the airline, daily service on both routes will begin on March 13, 2024. These flights will last almost through the IATA Summer season, ending on Sept. 30, 2024.
While not mentioned in the company’s press release, United recently terminated its codesharing agreement with Aer Lingus, leaving JetBlue as one of the Irish airline’s remaining U.S. partners. JetBlue and Aer Lingus do maintain a unilateral codesharing agreement, which was recently expanded in 2021.
New Service to Edinburgh
With its new service to Edinburgh, JetBlue is adding another dot to its U.K. route map; the airline currently services both London Heathrow and Gatwick airports. Similar to Dublin, JetBlue’s Edinburgh service will also be seasonal from May 22, 2024 to Sept. 30, 2024.
The service will be daily, operating only from New York-JFK.
Unlike JetBlue’s other transatlantic routes, both Dublin and Edinburgh will be operated using the carrier’s A321neo, instead of the A321LR. The A321neo has a more dense configuration with 22 additional seats, including eight fewer premium Mint suites.
Bolstering Service to Paris
The airline launched service to Paris-CDG earlier this year with flights to JFK. Starting on June 20, 2024, JetBlue will add a second daily service from New York to Paris, which is expected to be year-round.
On April 3, 2024, JetBlue will add Boston to Paris. Also set to be year-round, the service will be daily. Both additions will be operated by the airline’s A321LR.
With these new flights, JetBlue will have more than 10 daily flights between the U.S. and Europe, according to Cirium Diio data.
