JetBlue has announced an exciting transatlantic expansion of service, with flights to Dublin and Edinburgh being put on sale.
The Airbus A321neo will make daily operations to Dublin and Edinburgh possible with 16 redesigned Mint Suite seats and 144 core seats with a sleek and spacious interior.
JetBlue notes that the A321neo with Mint features a 20% increase in fuel efficiency and up to 500 nautical miles in additional range.
A Transatlantic Expansion For JetBlue
Dublin and Edinburgh will become JetBlue’s newest transatlantic destinations, with daily services being launched.
New York’s John F. Kennedy International Airport (JFK) and Boston Logan International Airport (BOS) to Dublin Airport (DUB) will begin on March 13, 2024.
JetBlue says this seasonal service will continue until September 30, 2024.
Meanwhile, its Edinburgh announced flight will depart from New York’s John F. Kennedy International Airport (JFK) on May 22, 2024, before concluding service on September 30, 2024.
As part of the expansion, this is the company’s fourth and fifth transatlantic market.
The two destinations join existing daily services towards London, Paris and Amsterdam, which have been hugely popular for the airline.
Comments From Executives
The success of our transatlantic service proves customers don’t have to choose between great service and low fares and can have them both with our award-winning Mint and core products. Our summer seasonal service to Dublin and Edinburgh will bring a new level of service and affordable fares to these markets that have been dominated by high-fare legacy carriers for decades. We look forward to introducing the JetBlue experience to business and leisure customers traveling this summer to and from Ireland and Scotland.Robin Hayes, chief executive officer, JetBlue.
