Following London and Paris, Amsterdam Becomes JetBlue's Third European Destination

LONG ISLAND CITY —JetBlue is making strides in its transatlantic expansion, introducing nonstop service from New York's John F. Kennedy International Airport (JFK) to Amsterdam Airport Schiphol. The airline is building on its previous success in Europe, having launched services to London last August and Paris in June of this year. An additional daily service from Boston's Logan International Airport to Amsterdam is also on the docket, set to begin on September 20.

These new routes will be operated using JetBlue’s Airbus A321 Long Range (LR) aircraft, which boasts an array of features designed for passenger comfort and cost-effectiveness. The aircraft will feature 24 revamped Mint Suite® seats, as well as 114 core seats, all contained within the spacious Airspace cabin interior.

Notably, the New York-Amsterdam route adds to JetBlue's growing list of European destinations, following the successful inauguration of services to London and Paris. The airline aims to disrupt the market by offering its award-winning service along with competitive fares, enhancing its transatlantic offering and giving passengers an alternative to legacy carriers.
