The low-cost airline will launch daily flights from New York JFK starting August 29 and from Boston starting September 20.
The U.S. low-cost carrier JetBlue continues to chart its transatlantic course. It just announced the upcoming opening of new frequencies in Europe to Amsterdam-Schiphol. JetBlue will launch daily flights to the Dutch metropolis from New York JFK starting August 29 and from Boston. On both routes, JetBlue will compete head-on with KLM.
The flights will be operated in Airbus A321LR (Long Range) aircraft configured with 138 seats: 24 seats in Mint mini-suite, and 114 seats in economy class. Fares start at $479 (432 euros) roundtrip for passengers departing from the U.S. and 399 euros (445 dollars) for passengers departing from the Netherlands. Mint class fares start at 1,299 euros roundtrip ($1,429).
Amsterdam will follow the opening of Paris by a few weeks
Amsterdam Schiphol will be JetBlue's third European destination. Indeed, it is on June 26, 2023 that the low-cost carrier, the second-largest U.S. low-cost carrier behind Southwest, will launch flights to Paris CDG from New York JFK, two years after launching its first transatlantic service between New York and London Heathrow, with fares starting at $479 round trip. As with its other transatlantic routes, JetBlue will operate the route with Airbus A321LR aircraft (of which it has a total of 13 on order) with a capacity of 138 seats (24 seats in Mint mini-suites, and 114 seats in economy class) in daily year-round operation. On this route, JetBlue will compete directly with Air France, with its joint venture partner Delta, and American Airlines. Indirectly, it will also compete with United Airlines and Air France on the New York-Newark route and with French Bee and La Compagnie from Orly. Recall that in addition to its first transatlantic route launched between New York JFK and London-Heathrow in March 2021, JetBlue has launched flights from New York JFK to London-Gatwick and has opened flights to both London airports from Boston.
