There’s a new city on JetBlue’s horizon: Paris has been announced as the airline’s next European destination.
The news comes following the successful launch of the carrier’s first transatlantic route to London, which took to the skies in August 2021.
“The response to our London service is proof that combining great service with low fares works,” said Robin Hayes, Chief Executive Officer at JetBlue. “We can’t wait to bring our reimagined Mint and core offerings to continental Europe’s most visited city.”
Here’s what we know about JetBlue’s future flights to Paris.
JetBlue Adds Paris to European Network
Before we get into the details, some bad news: You’ll have to wait until Summer 2023 before the first JetBlue Airbus A321LR departs for Paris.
Initially, JetBlue will fly between New York (JFK) and Paris Charles de Gaulle Airport (CDG). Soon after that, the carrier will begin a second nonstop route between Boston (BOS) and Paris.
Paris joins London as JetBlue’s second European destination. Given that France is the single most visited country in the world, it makes sense for JetBlue to try its luck in the City of Light.
“With so much pent-up demand, JetBlue is just in time to have their American customers experience the vitality and diversity of France’s offerings, new culinary itineraries, exciting upcoming sporting events — such as the Rugby World Cup 2023 and the Paris Summer Olympic and Paralympic Games 2024 — and everything else France is known for,” said Anne-Laure Tuncer, Director at USA Atout France and regional coordinator for the Americas.
Bottom Line: JetBlue provides both economy and business class passengers a unique way to cross the Atlantic. To show you what it’s like, we tested out the Mint experience between London and New York.
As it stands, the schedule for the new Paris route is yet to be revealed. However, as tickets are due to come on sale “in the coming months,” it’s likely we won’t have to wait much longer for the details.
JetBlue currently operates 5 nonstop daily flights across the Atlantic from Boston (BOS) and New York (JFK) to London’s Gatwick (LGW) and Heathrow (LHR) airports.
The addition of Paris to JetBlue’s network is a signal that the carrier’s London gamble has paid off. Paris was the next logical step, and we’re so excited to learn that this route is coming to fruition.
We can’t wait to try out JetBlue on its newest European route and are eagerly looking forward to seeing what’s next.
