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.
