The day has finally arrived: JetBlue has landed in Paris for the first time in the airline’s history.

“This is a very special next step for JetBlue as we celebrate our first arrival from New York and our first departure to New York,” said Maja Gedosev, General Manager for Europe at JetBlue, at a media briefing on June 30, 2023, at Charles de Gaulle Airport.

Following JetBlue’s success in London, the airline’s arrival in Paris heralds the official addition of the second European destination to the airline’s route network.

Here’s what you need to know about JetBlue’s new service to Paris.

Paris Welcomes Daily JetBlue Service From New York

JetBlue touched down in Paris for the first time ahead of schedule at 6:09 a.m. on the morning of June 30, 2023.

The 6-hour-and-32-minute journey was operated by the airline’s newest Airbus A321LR aircraft (registered N4074J) which was revealed the week prior at the Paris Air Show.

The French capital city joins London as only JetBlue’s second-ever destination in Europe.

The schedule for JetBlue’s New York (JFK) to Paris (CDG) service is as follows:

CDG to JFK8:55 a.m.11:22 a.m.

Following the touchdown in Paris, a media briefing was held at the Extime Lounge in Charles de Gaulle’s Terminal 2.

The significance of JetBlue’s arrival could be felt at the briefing given the presence of David Neeleman, JetBlue’s founder, and Robin Hayes, the airline’s managing director, as well as Régis Lacote, CEO of Charles de Gaulle Airport.

“It’s so exciting to be here in Paris, our second European destination,” said Hayes.

Before the plane headed back to New York on what would be the airline’s first journey between Paris and New York, there were more celebrations at the gate along with goodies for passengers.

Note that given JetBlue’s status as a low-cost airline, passengers don’t currently have access to a lounge — even when flying in Mint (JetBlue’s business class).

Bottom Line:

JetBlue now operates a total of 5 transatlantic routes: New York to Paris and Boston and New York to London Heathrow and London Gatwick. Before the end of summer 2023, a sixth service will start with the inauguration of New York to Amsterdam on August 30, 2023. A second route to Paris, this time from Boston, is also set to launch sometime in 2024.

Final Thoughts

Et voilà — you can now fly from New York to Paris with JetBlue.

It’s an exciting time for passengers on both sides of the Atlantic as JetBlue’s transatlantic network continues to grow.
