JetBlue’s first-ever flight connecting Boston (BOS) and Amsterdam (AMS) took to the skies on September 20, 2023, with the first flight from Amsterdam back to Boston leaving the following morning of September 21, 2023.
The route’s launch comes less than a month after the New York-based airline touched down in Amsterdam for the first time and completes the airline’s European route network expansion (at least for now).
“Our recently launched Amsterdam service from New York has already been very successful and we are thrilled to expand our low fares and great service to Amsterdam to our Boston customers,” said Dave Clarke, Head of Revenue and Planning at JetBlue.
Let’s take a look at the details of the new route as well as JetBlue’s European route network.
JetBlue Concludes European Route Rollout
JetBlue now connects Boston and Amsterdam, the most visited city in the Netherlands, with a nonstop, year-round, daily service.
The schedule is as follows:

|Boston (BOS) to Amsterdam (AMS)||10:13 p.m.||11:35 a.m. (+1)|
|Amsterdam (AMS) to Boston (BOS)||11:35 a.m.||1:47 p.m.|
Like all of its transatlantic services, passengers flying the route will do so onboard JetBlue’s state-of-the-art Airbus A321neos which we can confirm is an excellent way to cross The Pond.
JetBlue’s European Takeover
Pre-pandemic, JetBlue’s international route network consisted of relatively short-haul routes to the Caribbean and Latin America.
In 2021 with the pandemic in the rear-view mirror, JetBlue stretched its wings across the Atlantic for the first time with service from New York (JFK) to London’s Heathrow Airport (LHR).
Since then, London’s Gatwick (LGW) was added into the mix as well as transatlantic departures to London from a second airport in the U.S.: Boston-Logan (BOS).
After almost a full 2 years of success with London, JetBlue launched routes to Paris (CDG) in June 2023 and, most recently, Amsterdam.
The airline now has a solid network of flights between the East Coast and Europe, with the following 7 daily services:
- Boston (BOS) to Amsterdam (AMS)
- Boston (BOS) to London Gatwick (LGW)
- Boston (BOS) to London Heathrow (LHR)
- New York (JFK) to Amsterdam (AMS)
- New York (JFK) to London Gatwick (LGW)
- New York (JFK) to London Heathrow (LHR)
- New York (JFK) to Paris (CDG)
When you combine JetBlue’s well-established U.S. customer base, very reasonable economy and business class fares, and unique onboard service, including amazing crew and free Wi-Fi for all, the airline has a promising transatlantic future ahead.
JetBlue has now officially launched each of its 7 routes from the East Coast to Europe, providing those on both sides of the Atlantic with a unique new way to hop The Pond.
Which European city will JetBlue head to next? Will they launch European services from a third U.S. city? Our guess is as good as yours.
