JetBlue’s first-ever flight to Amsterdam (AMS) takes off from New York (JFK) this evening at 8:05 p.m. Eastern Time.

The transatlantic journey to the Dutch capital, which is blocked at 7 hours and 35 minutes and arrives at 9:40 on the morning of August 30, 2023, will mark the start of regularly scheduled service to the third European country in JetBlue’s network.

Once this new route commences this evening, JetBlue will operate nonstop transatlantic services to London, England (LHR/LGW), Paris, France (CDG), and now Amsterdam, The Netherlands (AMS).

Here’s everything you need to know about JetBlue’s new route to Amsterdam.

JetBlue Adds Amsterdam to Transatlantic Route Network

JetBlue is wasting no time in building on the success of its first transatlantic route to London which launched in 2021.

The launch of this Amsterdam service comes just after launching Paris service on June 30, 2023.

The carrier has brought its lower fares and unique offering to London and Paris flights — now, it’s hoping to do the same with Amsterdam.

The regular schedule for the daily service between JFK and Amsterdam is as follows:


Less than a month after the Amsterdam inaugural, JetBlue will initiate service between Boston (BOS) and Amsterdam with a daily round-trip service starting on September 20, 2023.

What To Expect When Flying JetBlue to Europe

Passengers flying with JetBlue to Europe will experience the carrier’s state-of-the-art Airbus A321 LR (long-range) aircraft.

JetBlue’s transatlantic flights are operated by narrow-body (single-aisle) jets that you might be used to flying on domestic routes with the U.S. However, they still offer a competitively comfortable ride, especially in Mint — JetBlue’s business class offering.

The jets feature a total of 138 seats. There are 114 in the Core (economy) cabin, with the remaining 24 being reserved for airline’s most exclusive and spacious seat the Mint Suite (business class).

Hot Tip:

There’s never been a better time to consider getting yourself a credit card that earns JetBlue TrueBlue points. You’ll be able to use the points you earn to fly to the airline’s ever-expanding list of European destinations!

Final Thoughts

JetBlue’s about to start flights to the third European city in its network: Amsterdam. We can’t wait to learn which city will be next for the airline’s European network. What are your guesses?
