LONG ISLAND, NEW YORK — The American low-cost operator JetBlue revealed its intention to bring competitive pricing in the transatlantic flight sector. Starting later this summer, the airline will offer new routes connecting New York's John F. Kennedy International Airport with Amsterdam Airport Schiphol.

This follows the airline's recently launched service between Boston and Amsterdam and makes Schipol International JetBlue's third transatlantic destination after successfully launching flights to London's Heathrow and Gatwick airports in 2021, as well as the highly anticipated Paris service beginning in June.

Robin Hayes, JetBlue's CEO, stated that the new route has been long overdue for some competition. He criticized U.S. legacy carriers and their international partners for monopolizing the market with high fares and subpar service. Hayes vowed that JetBlue would reduce fares and enhance customer experience on flights between the U.S. and Amsterdam, just as it has done in London and Paris.

A recent Dutch court decision, which found the Dutch government in violation of the law when it attempted to decrease the cap on Amsterdam Airport Schiphol's yearly air traffic movements, has given JetBlue confidence in entering the market.

Hayes highlighted JetBlue's unique approach to combining low fares and customer-centric experiences, which is not commonly found in Europe. He expressed confidence in winning over customers, airport officials, and the Dutch government, and looks forward to collaborating with Dutch authorities for long-term market success.

JetBlue's new Amsterdam service will grant the airline a significant presence at another major European airport and attract a new customer base seeking connections between Europe and the U.S.

JetBlue will operate daily flights on its Airbus A321LR aircraft, featuring 24 redesigned Mint Suite seats, 114 core seats, and a stylish, roomy Airspace cabin interior.

JetBlue's entry into Amsterdam promises a new era of affordable, customer-focused travel for both leisure and business passengers. The airline is currently the sixth largest in the U.S.
