As of today, JetBlue is offering nonstop service between John F. Kennedy International Airport in New York City and London Heathrow Airport.
Heathrow welcomed the airline’s first non-North American flight on Thursday, marking the first time the airline served a destination other than its more than 100 destinations in North America. JetBlue now flies to 26 countries, including the United Kingdom.
“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”JetBlue CEO Robin Hayes
“With JetBlue now connecting New York and London, travelers finally have the ability to enjoy low fares while also experiencing superior service,” Hayes continued. “As the U.K. 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 U.K. travelers to the U.S. soon and launching service between Boston and London next year.”
