Following the successful launch of the carrier’s first-ever transatlantic flights between New York (JFK) and London in August 2021, JetBlue has announced the addition of flights between Boston and London, which are due to start this summer.
On July 19, 2022, JetBlue will begin flying daily between Boston (BOS) and London-Gatwick (LGW). About a month later, on August 22, 2022, the airline will start flights from Boston to London-Heathrow (LHR).
“Our strategy of flying to both Heathrow and Gatwick Airports has been a success for us in New York, and 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 2 main airports,” said Robin Hayes, Chief Executive Officer at JetBlue.
Let’s take a look at the details of JetBlue’s exciting network expansion.
JetBlue Launches 2 Daily Flights Between Boston and London
The highly-anticipated JetBlue routes from Boston to Gatwick and Heathrow will be the third and fourth transatlantic routes for the airline, respectively.
As we mentioned, daily flights to Gatwick will begin July 19, 2022, and will operate according to the following schedule:
- Depart Boston (BOS) 6:37 p.m. — Arrive London Gatwick (LGW) 6:35 a.m. (+1)
- Depart London Gatwick (LGW) 12:15 p.m. — Arrive Boston (BOS) 3:02 p.m.
Soon after, flights to Heathrow will begin, and will operate daily according to the following schedule:
- Depart Boston (BOS) 6:32 p.m. — Arrive London Heathrow (LHR) 6:30 a.m. (+1)
- Depart London Heathrow (LHR) 8:25 a.m. — Arrive Boston (BOS) 11:13 a.m.
Hot Tip: JetBlue’s new transatlantic services give passengers a new and unique option for crossing the Atlantic from the East Coast. We recently reviewed the experience in Mint (business class) from London to New York — check it out to see for yourself just how great it is.
“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,” said Hayes.

JetBlue’s Airbus A321LR Aircraft
JetBlue chose specially configured Airbus A321LRs to operate its transatlantic flights.
Flying long-haul flights on narrow-body jets such as the A321LR is a relatively new phenomenon — and JetBlue has proved that it works.
In Mint (what JetBlue calls its business class product), passengers can relax with comfort and privacy, thanks to the 1-1 configuration of the suites.
In economy, seats are arranged in a 3-3 configuration, provide ample legroom, and feature inflight entertainment screens. Plus, all passengers can access free high-speed Wi-Fi.
Hot Tip: Don’t have the cash to fly Mint? No problem — there are tons of ways you can earn JetBlue TrueBlue points that you can use to pay for your Mint flight with points.
JetBlue is set to continue its transatlantic expansion with 2 new routes from Boston (BOS) to London Gatwick (LGW) and London Heathrow (LHR) this summer.
Passengers on both sides of the Atlantic now have even more opportunities to experience the exceptional JetBlue experience when flying between the East Coast and London.
Needless to say, we’re excited to see which destinations JetBlue will add to its European route network next!
