JetBlue recently revealed it will be adding a route from Boston to London this summer
This is the airline’s tenth route outside of the US that will provide nonstop flights to Europe. This is a big addition to their offerings given the airline has been in talks with European regulators and agencies over an extension of flights under their 5,400-mile agreement.
JetBlue is the only airline offering flights to London’s Heathrow and Gatwick in New England.
JetBlue is launching nonstop routes from Boston to London this summer. The new direct hops offer great options for travelers looking to avoid the crowded airport experiences while still reaching their destinations efficiently.
The airline plans to expand its London service with brand-new routes from Boston Logan International Airport to London Gatwick Airport starting July 19th and from the city to London Heathrow Airport starting August 22nd.
New routes have just been launched into London under a year after JetBlue introduced its first flight to New York City.
Our strategy of flying to both Heathrow and Gatwick Airports has been a success for us in New York. This time, we’ve secured slots to be able to do the same in Boston, becoming the only airline in New England offering flights to London’s two main airports. “Our London service has been an incredible success so far and we’ve been able to go in with our unbeatable JetBlue service and experience and bring down fares on a traditionally overpriced route. We’re ready to do the same at Logan as we advance our global expansion plans.
Boston flights are now operating daily on JetBlue’s Airbus A321 Long Range aircraft and include 24 Mint suites — which the airline revamped last year with sliding doors & beds for better comfort. It also includes 114 core seats, providing a good mix of seating. Mint is a business-class travel website that offers some of the highest fares around. $1,949 for Mint could be in your future.
Customers in the main cabin on flights to London will also be treated to the airline’s “farm to in-flight seat table” meals thanks to a partnership with New York-based restaurant group Dig, as well as receive unlimited, free high-speed Wi-Fi and live entertainment.
JetBlue has been named the best airline in the U.S. for 3 consecutive years with praise from its passengers as well as readers of Travel + Leisure, thanks to its roomy main cabin seats and onboard snacks as well as its extensive onboard entertainment offerings.
And in January, United introduced a new option for loyal customers and launched Mosaic, an elite tier in its “TrueBlue” frequent flier program with complimentary upgrades to Mint. The partner flight tickets are also free. However, you won’t have the same privileges on flights that do not part ways with Boston or Houston.
