JetBlue set to bring transatlantic travellers low fares, new choices, and incredible service as it lands at both London Heathrow and London Gatwick
JetBlue is ready to disrupt the market with a new service from London starting this Summer, followed by Boston in Summer 2022.
JetBlue announced it will make its highly anticipated entrance into the transatlantic market with a nonstop service between London Heathrow Airport (LHR) and New York’s John F. Kennedy International Airport (JFK) commencing 12 August 2021. An additional service between London Gatwick Airport (LGW) and New York's John F. Kennedy International Airport (JFK) will commence 30 September 2021.
Flights on both routes will operate daily on JetBlue's new Airbus A321LR (Long Range) aircraft with 24 reimagined Mint Suites (business class), 117 Core seats (economy class) and the sleek and spacious Airspace cabin interior.
Get Ready for the Royal Treat-mint
JetBlue unveiled a reimagined version of its popular Mint® experience (business class). The first complete redesign of Mint again sets a new standard – this time on transatlantic flights – featuring 24 private suites with a sliding door for every Mint customer, a custom-designed seat cushion by Tuft & Needle, and will also introduce its latest innovation, the stunning Mint Studio™ (bookable as an ancillary product).
JetBlue's new Transatlantic Core Experience
JetBlue announced more details of its plan to shake up the transatlantic market, this time unveiling its Core experience for travellers who previously flew in other airlines economy offerings. When JetBlue launches flights from London this Summer it will bring a whole new level of service and comfort to customers who want a great experience at a low fare.
Seat Assignments Update
Due to a system upgrade, the functionality to book seats through the GDS has been temporarily suspended. We are working closely with our GDS partners to reinstate this capability and expect it to be complete by September 2021.
Carry-on Bags for Blue Basic
Bookings combining two Blue Basic fare components “end-on-end” issued under one ticket, including a transatlantic and onward JetBlue connecting flight, will be permitted a carry-on bag for the entire journey free of charge per the transatlantic baggage allowance. Please note, those issuing completely separate tickets will still be treated as per the original rules intent.
For example, those buying a standalone US domestic sector in Blue Basic will not be permitted a carry-on bag as per our standard JetBlue terms and conditions.
