After recently announcing plans to expand service overseas to the United Kingdom, JetBlue followed this message with plans for further expansion to points beyond its first target city of London.
Back in early April, the low-cost carrier announced its intention to grow its fleet and offer long-haul flights between the United States and London, specifically from airports in New York (JFK) and Boston (BOS) to a to-be-determined airport in London. These flights begin in 2021 via 13 Airbus A321LR aircraft. Due to the popularity and high price that comes with parking aircraft at London Heathrow Airport, JetBlue will most likely have to settle for slots at Gatwick or Stansted airports.
JetBlue also has high hopes for further European reach into Paris and Amsterdam (AMS), but the availability of slots at the handful of airports may present a challenge. Thus, JetBlue would have to consider smaller airports or airports in nearby smaller cities.

Welcome to Rhodes, a medieval treasure beautifully preserved throughout the centuries. Rhodes is the capital of the Dodecanese, an island ideal not only for those who want to relax, but also for those looking for an action-packed holiday! With its bright green hills, rich green valleys and uninterrupted line of golden beaches, Rhodes is truly a blessed place. “The sun island” has more sunshiny days and milder temperatures throughout the year than any other location in Greece. It is, after all, one of the country’s easternmost places and among the first to welcome summer on its impressive beaches. Add in the excellent facilities for tourism, the island’s special blend of cosmopolitan and traditional, and numerous cultural and archaeological sites, the most important being the Medieval (Old) Town, a UNESCO World Heritage site, and you’ve got the perfect holiday destination. While on Rhodes, don’t miss a daytrip to nearby Sými. An island of sponge divers and seamen, Sými used to have 30,000 inhabitants before the Second World War and was the richest island in the Dodecanese, despite its small size. Today, Sými attracts many visitors thanks to its beautifully preserved Neo-Classical buildings and the famous Archangel Michael monastery at Panormitis.
