JetBlue Officially Enters Transatlantic Market


JetBlue has officially entered the transatlantic market with new, nonstop service between New York’s John F. Kennedy International Airport (JFK) and London Heathrow Airport (LHR).


JetBlue has officially entered the transatlantic market with new, nonstop service between New York’s John F. Kennedy International Airport (JFK) and London Heathrow Airport (LHR).


The first customer-carrying JetBlue flight between the U.S. and the UK touched down at Heathrow just before 10 a.m., local time. This marks the first time JetBlue has served a destination beyond the 100-plus cities it flies to throughout the Americas. With new service in the United Kingdom, JetBlue now operates in 26 countries.


“For the first time in JetBlue’s 21-year history, we are crossing the North Atlantic and competing in one of the busiest travel markets in the world, well-positioned to introduce our award-winning service and low fares to a new global audience that is ready for a fresh choice in transatlantic flying,” said Robin Hayes, chief executive officer, JetBlue. “With JetBlue now connecting New York and London, travelers finally have the ability to enjoy low fares while also experiencing superior service. As the UK opens to travelers coming from America, our flights are well-timed to meet the pent up demand for travel between our two countries. We look forward to welcoming UK travelers to the U.S. soon and launching service between Boston and London next year.”


Dame Karen Pierce DCMG, UK ambassador to the U.S., said, “I want to congratulate JetBlue on its inaugural transatlantic flight to London and wish all the crew and customers a safe and pleasant journey. As vaccinated Americans can now come to the UK without the need to quarantine, this route will offer more Americans a path to doing business, holidays and family reunions in the UK. Today's flight quite literally takes our special relationship to new heights.”


Paul Gauger, senior vice president, The Americas, VisitBritain, said, “The JetBlue route launch between New York and London is not only a most welcomed service to build on the transatlantic market, but the additional accessibility between the two destinations will be an essential player in reigniting international travel. It is no surprise that there is a huge appetite from Americans to return to Britain, and with the recent announcement regarding the quarantine lift for double vaccinated Americans, we are ready to safely welcome them back to experience the bustling city of London and beyond, from our picturesque villages, breath-taking countryside and captivating coasts.”
