Just in time for travelers making their summer vacation plans, JetBlue has announced that it will soon launch a new flight service to Amsterdam.
The new route will operate daily between New York’s John F. Kennedy International and Amsterdam Airport Schiphol. Though an official launch date has yet to be set, JetBlue expects to offer this service in late summer.
The airline also plans to offer flights from Boston to the Netherlands capital.
“This route is long overdue for some competition,” said Robin Hayes, chief executive officer of JetBlue, in a press release. “For too long, the U.S. legacy carriers… have locked customers in with expensive fares and mediocre service. Just like we’re doing in London and Paris, we will bring fares down and improve the experience for customers flying between the U.S. and Amsterdam.”
This new venture makes Amsterdam the third European city in JetBlue’s network, following recently added flights to London and Paris. JetBlue launched its service in London in August 2021. Its newest service to Paris will start this June.
Travelers headed to Amsterdam on JetBlue can expect to receive the airline’s usual amenities like unlimited free high-speed Wi-Fi and live TV channels. The aircraft operating this route will also feature 24 Mint Suite seats, JetBlue’s business class version.
“Our formula of combining a customer-centric experience and everyday low fares isn’t something you find in Europe,” Hayes added. “We’re confident that customers, Amsterdam airport officials, and JetBlue will delight the Dutch government when they see firsthand our positive impact. We look forward to working with Dutch officials to ensure long-term success in the market.”
We expect tickets to Amsterdam to go on sale in the coming weeks.
